Glimpsing a thatched roof, mullioned windows, or an open stable door, even the least curious traveller must wonder what the cottage is like inside. This delightful book reveals the ways in which clever and imaginative cottage owners have succeeded in retaining that all too elusive sense of age, without being forced to adopt the primitive standard of comfort endured by the original inhabitants. The author and photographer have searched countrywide from Berwick-upon-Tweed to the Lizard peninsular for interiors which still have quirky imperfections and beguiling architectural details. They have uncovered a wealth of charming cottages which, despite the passage of time and alterations made by successive generations, retain wonderful and poignant reminders of a way of life now vanished.
