Hello all! I won't go into the history here, since there are other posts on this website already - however I wanted to do an update regardless.

Since the previous posts online about exploring this cottage, it has set on fire... So if you were hoping to go and see the furniture and the decor that remained close to original - you will be disappointed. Just thought I'd let you know, it certainly surprised me.

The light was fading since I explored with a couple of non-users of this site; here are a few gloomy long exposures of what's left. (edit: wrote this yesterday, went back today)

I was also more there for the artsy photos - so these don't show the site that well, but I hope they're enjoyable!

Worth noting the outhouses are still alright, but everything is well overgrown!!

Thanks for viewing, hope this helps anyone thinking of visiting the site.
