    Quote:very well indeed Cjean, you would usually replace every 25 years or so, but it is quite an artform in itself and fantastic to watch it being done...One had its thatch replaced last summmer. There are a lot more houses like those I posted in the village... very quaint and Olde Worlde

    I think you have some of the most beautiful countryside. I watch the travel channel and the BBC daily because I would so love to see it for myself. Thank you so much for posting the pictures, I would love to see more. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

    So 25 yrs??? I take it they hold up pretty well....I always thought that was the most awesome thing, I always wanted one of those old fashioned type homes. Almost like the ones off 'The Quiet Man'!!!! That, and a hobbit house from Lord of the Rings!!!! LOL!!! I'm jealous!!!

    I heard that the thatch must be cut at a certain cycle of the moon or it does not last as well... is that true, or have you heard anything of the sort?
