Egge Cottage was originally thatched, and was formerly known as the Thatched Cottage. Miller built it for himself to appear as a romantic ruin. It was "Miller's first essay in the Picturesque" (Pevsner) and formed part of his work on his Radway Grange property, including the erection of the castle, now The Castle Inn (q.v.), with which Egge Cottage forms a group.
