Thank you everyone for your entries to the inaugural photo competition at the Cottages. We have had a fantastic response and the quality of photos has been exceptional.

Picking a winner was a very difficult task and was made with the expert help of professional photographer Pat Clarke. Pat used to run the photography courses here at The Cottages.

Without further ado, the winner of The Cottages Photo Competition 2012 is, Gerard Seery  with his entry, “Bluebells at Thatcher’s Rest Cottage”.
