    The owner who lived next door to the cottage gave the impression that he did not want people in his cottage on the couple of times he spoke to us, his wife was rather fed up with having to fix the wifi. Every morning when it was not raining he was back and forth with his gardening tractor past the front of the cottage. In fact one morning he was cutting the hedge with a petrol hedge cutter within 30cm of our window! This is the sort of thing you do when the people are out. We were out midmorning every day.
