Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire

The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottages in Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire

Minster Lovell is a pretty village in West Oxfordshire just a few miles from the market town of Witney. The village grew up on the south bank of the peaceful River Windrush.

We come here often as it is only a short drive from our home in the North Cotswolds.

On this occasion, however, we didn't drive. Rather, we came here on a family walk across the fields from the village of Asthall.

We were heading for the ruins of Minster Lovell Hall, a historic fortified manor house on the banks of the river.

As we headed down the Minster Lovell High Street we passed this lovely row of thatched cottages with blooming flowers. It looked so quintessentially English I just had to stop and take a photo!
