The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottage in Kingham, Oxfordshire

The Oxfordshire village of Kingham is just a few miles from our family home in the North Cotswolds, though we live across the county boundary in Gloucestershire.

We usually come to Kingham to take the train, as Kingham rail station is on the direct line between Worcester and London.

On this occasion, I simply decided I'd had enough of being cooped up in my home office. I could see the sun streaming in my office window and decided there were better ways to spend my life than slaving over a computer keyboard!

I hopped in my car and drove to Kingham, this time with the idea of exploring the village itself. I discovered several pretty thatched cottages, but this one was my favourite. It so typical of the cottages you find scattered all over the Cotswolds.
