Whoo settled in at last. A few pics

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Well its been about four weeks since I was last online due to the house move. Anyway to cut a long story short this place is just Fab!! We are in the end of a row of 25 old mining cottages. Totally surrounded by woodlands and fields, a cycle path at the bottom of the garden which goes for about 20 miles in either direction and is part of the national cycle network. Also a fairly wide stream that runs along the track as well, bats, owls, woodpeckers and birds galore. Minnie and Milo were in care on the weekend we moved, and we got them back on Sunday afternoon. Now the plan was keep them in for five days for them to get settled. Not the case, after a brief explore of the house which has three floors, they spent the rest of that evening and the following day at the windows crying. I just had a feeling about those guys, that they were too close to us to go off. So we did not feed them on the wedensday evening, and let them out to sniff about for an hour while we kept an eye on them. The following morning they were at the door waiting. The rest as they say is history, they just have one enormous playground now

What an interesting looking house! Given the surrounds in the picture, I can see why your kitties are enthralled! It's a cat's dream setting!

Cool place & great photos! Your babies are beautiful!
My Mom grew up in a neighborhood/situation alot like those row houses & the history of them fascinates me. Have you looked into any history of the place? It would be cool if you could find some old photos of past residents & find a place to display them.

Oh WOW! Stone houses in the middle of nowhere! That just looks awesome, and so old! When were they built? I love older houses. They have so much character. I would love to see pictures of the inside, if you get a chance (I know, you're still moving in so I will give you a grace period )

How close are you to a city now? The birds are beautiful! Is it actually forest around you or are you just luck enough to live in a surbuban "forest"? I'm guessing you don't have to deal to much with wild animals there.

That is a beautiful setting and I'm enchanted. More pics please!!!

I'm sooo jealous! I would love to live in a place like that! It looks like such a quiet, peaceful setting, and your cottage looks so comfortable inside. Did you buy the cottage or are you renting?

Thanks again, it is a great place, we are renting, it is pretty peaceful. There is a small factory over the other side of us which produces animal food for livestock mainly. It is far from smelly, in fact sometimes when I catch a smell of it, it make me feel hungry The only noise you get is from like an air condition unit, it shuts down altogether for the weekend so that is nice. My dad has been checking out the history for me, they were built in the 1800`s and just one rank of 25 houses contained over 150 people, a lot of children in those days, as child labour was at its peak. Well if I find out anything else interesting I shall let you know.
