Euro 2012 – Northcott Cottage

Where we are staying with Shareen’s parents, Northcott Cottage. The house is about 600 years old, apparently it was given to the daughter of the farmer way back along with 35 acres of land across the road as her dowry. Idea being that she could rent out the land and house and earn her own living that way. Over the years the family got the land back but somehow the cottage remained empty until relatively recently. Shareen’s parents own the half on the right and they have a neighbour in the part on the left.

We also have their garden in the back and there’s another garden in the front (not shown).
