    Talking Sylvia's Cottage - December 2017


    Sylvia's Cottage



    Sometime this year I was in the area, looking for something to explore on the route home, remembered I had a few things to tick off, so this was the first of them, thanks to Mikey for the heads up on this one, it is a rather delightful place, if not rather isolated being far back from the roadside.

    This place had a fondness about it, something about its setting its layout and the odds and ends that was left laying about, just made this cottage rather cosy with little to no real evidence who lived here, a christmas card was on the floor in the living room, addressed to Sylvia so I guess this lady lived here at somepoint. (hence the name).

    Not much else is to be said but the finer details and its contents made this a really relaxed and enjoyable place to capture.

    On with the shots!






















































    Thanks for looking

    That's a nice and cosy-looking cottage. Worth a renovation. The location looks nice and peaceful. Looking at the birthday card being 2012 that looks like when it became derelict.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Yep I'd say the christmas card indicates when it was last lived in, not much decay either, would make a nice home!
