We finally got to see inside and this photo is the sitting room.

This is the larger of the 2 bedrooms.

This is the pantry, complete with the inseide of an old grand piano.

The most romantic thing about the cottage was that it was still lit with gas lamps, had no central heating, no electricity, no phone or modernisation. In fact we learned that it had last been revamped in 1939.

The water came from the hill and must have been unreliable at times and it was impossible to drive to the house, but it was the most perfect place to get away and hide from civilization. Even mobile phones didn't work there!

It was quite a mad idea, and we were really out of our depth but we decided that we would like to put in an offer.
