It is interesting when you start looking at thatched cottages, a lot of them don’t seem to have a porch.  Perhaps it is because the thatch eave gives an overhang with a little protection when you go through the door.

As, all thatched property owners know, you rarely have guttering with thatch.  Porches have become quite a feature and are often a lovely addition to the design of a cottage.

It has been noticed that many of the porches on thatched cottages are not thatched.  This may well be because they take a lot of wear in the form of rain and often need more maintenance.  However, many porches are thatched and show interesting design ideas.
