History 

 ​

I have done a little research on this place and not wanting to copy and paste as I usually do I have collated as much as I can to protect this little place. ​

Built in around 1875 this little farmhouse was a thriving business with cattle producing milk for locals. Since around 1901 a family moved in to the farm, the parents died leaving their children to run the farm. ​

The farm has been derelict for some years, I am not too sure how long but parts of it and especially the little trinkets & belongings have been preserved nicely. The farm land around it is still in use by local farmers who use it to keep their sheep and cows on the land. ​

Visited this place with @hamtagger , thanks to @Judderman62 for the info on this place (y)  ​

Set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside we parked up and set off on a little walk... amongst sheep and cows. They were no bother. Just before reaching the farmhouse there were 3 black cows looking at us. We went round a corner and I kept peeking out to see if they were still looking, they were. I was hoping for a stampede but they just looked gormless. ​

I liked this little place, full of charm and character and it was visible that this was once a home. ​

I originally thought when looking around that only men must have lived here, there were lots of things scattered about and not much seemed to have the female touch. It was only when I done some research on the place I realised that this little home was very cosy, a family home which back in the day would have in the daytime had that lovely freshly cooked bread and cake smell about it by a wife going about her duties. ​

Anyway, small but perfectly formed it wasn't a massive place as you would expect from the size of the outbuildings (they had all collapsed or were close to it) There was no internal toilet, that was the first thing I noticed when I looked around. The ceilings were low as cottages normally are. The rooms were a nice size too. A fair house for one which dated back this far. In particular I liked the windows, they had that farmhouse feel to them. Accompanied by dingy nets which had been left to decay over the years it couldn't get any better. What I loved most was that at one point this little farmhouse would have been someones pride and joy, a family home where the farmer came home at the end of the day after tending to his cattle to rest for the night before a new working day. Now it still has that feel to it but instead is occupied by pigeons & spiders instead of people. Personal items such as the vanity mirror and teacup (see HT's report when he eventually gets around to posting). ​

This was our first 'cottaging' experience and we quite enjoyed it. ​

Love places like this. Really liked reading your description of the place too, seemed like you properly took time to get the feel of it. I reckon you'll be hooked on cottaging now  :lol:

Dunno how they lived with the wallpaper, that pic made my eyes go funny!
