ruined cottage close to the River Nevern. The ivy had just been removed from the shell of the building and there was a notice of an application for planning permission to turn it into a holiday cottage. Until then the building stands folorn and open to the elements, the remains of the crug loft sagging down inside and the stairs leading nowhere. Peeping in through the open doorway, it's easy to see what it once would have been with its large fireplace with two ovens set into the wall, the stairs curling up at the side of the fireplace, the remains of wooden panelling dividing off a more formal parlour. Limewash still clings to the front wall, the top coat white but other coats showing that it was once ox blood pink. In front of the cottage was a clearing of coppiced hazels full of snowdrops and wild daffodils and the River Nevern rushing past.

Old barns hold a fascination for me and the setting of this one beside a pond and nestled against a hill caught my attention. So unlike the farmhouse that fronts the property, it is in need of paint and roof repair without which it will surely start to sag and fall apart.
