Room with a view - and a half

Desirable property, in need of some renovation.
Think of all the simple meals cooked on this little range, a long time ago.  A very basic home, probably warm from the heat of the fire, but a howling gale outside.  Sounds cosy, but the inhabitants of this cottage would have had an incredibly hard life.  A lifestyle we can't even imagine these days.  One hell of a view though!
I could hear three cuckoos calling while I was standing on this spot.

  1. I wonder if Tesco delivered out there? As you say, they had a very hard life. That's a poignasnt photo of the long disused and rusty range; in its heyday, I bet it was kept black and shiny.
