Ultimate Choccie Box

This delightful village of picturesque thatched cottages is part of the National Trust's huge Holnicote Estate, which takes in over 12,000 acres of Exmoor coast and countryside.

The charm of Selworthy is the wonderfully preserved thatched cottages and the historic All Saints church. The church is perched on the side of the hill, and the view from the porch out over the Vale of Porlock to the moors beyond is quite superb.

Your fuji works well Bill.
Bill Phillips: Considering it is the entry level one I can't fault it. The lack of a viewfinder isn't ideal but the quality of the sensor and lenses produces excellent results Michael.

Very purdy Bill. To complete the choccie boxyness you would need to fell that tree.
Bill Phillips: don't you dare touch that tree

Bill Phillips: Quite so comrade
It must be quite a pricey business keeping those cottages maintained. Just the thatch will cost a fortune, although I see that they can last 30 years and more.
Bill Phillips: About £100 a M2 I believe. It can last up to 70 years in some conditions apparently but it can last as little as 20!

It all looks delightful. There are times when I think about giving up my NT membership but then I remember that they sometimes do good things, too - such as this.
Bill Phillips: We get our moneys worth out of the NT.
What delightful cottages, you found a good viewpoint.
Bill Phillips: It was choccie box heaven Brian
