It is a well-kept keepers cottage, Harry :o)
And quite a well-kept secret - I haven't seen it before.
Thank you for another lovely picture.

My friend Christopher Ingram lived there in th 90's for a number of years part of the tenancy was to check the trees along footpaths for any dangerous trees. In the large paddock at the rear he used to keep 2 goats,they were a pain to catch as they used to escape into the woods
