This piece had one of the longest production run of all the cottages. Being a very typical "chocolate box" cottage it is a very simple but attractive cottage making it one of the most popular of David's work.
Very early pieces had "Created in Cornwall by David Winter" on the Base Label and were slightly larger. Various colour variations exist. Most common have light grey walls and a black roof. Some though have much darker walls.
This cottage was used in 1989 to become part of the Scottish Collection where ropes and stones where added to the roof and it was renamed to "Scotish Crofters". However, during the transition period some base labels were put on the wrong versions.
Some base labels incorrectly spells this piece as "Fallstaff's Manor" or "Falstaff Manor". Releases in America and Canada were numbered as a limited edition of 10,000. However, this was not a worldwide restriction.
