These cottages are probably cold and drafty in the winter, and hot and stuffy in the summer, but I think they’re gorgeous. I could definitely see me and the missus living in one. Our own village is probably as close as you can get here in the States.
Val lives in County Essex and sent me this card, which took only five days to get here! Pictured (clockwise, starting from the top left) are the villages of Wendons Ambo, Arkesden, Walton-on-the-Naze, and Pleshey.
