Snig's Foot House

I found Snig's Foot House! Every once in a while when I'm cyberskiving I browse images of houses and cottages in forests. I hope that one day I might find something that comes close to the picture I have in my mind of the house that features in my current novel. Today I found it - so here it is:

(I've borrowed this pic from http://gothicbohemianstock.deviantart.com/ Hop over there for lots more great pics.)

In my novel, of course, the house isn't derelict (and in real life it isn't derelict any longer.) That lean-to on the side is an old timber-framed cottage and to the rear there is a granny annex. Otherwise, it's perfect. So, lots of gratitude to Gothic Bohemian for taking the photo in the first place and allowing use of her work.

That house looks like it would be more of a character than a location.

Very much so, Patsy. That's certainly how it is in my novel.

It's amazing when you come across the house that you have pictured in your mind. I think this house would have a story all of its own.

A house with great character indeed - when I saw your post I thought you meant you had bought a new house, so it was quite a surprise when I saw the pic. Reckoned you must have been a bit of a DIY handyman! :)

I can't seem to post anything any more with my Google or wordpress accounts, so I'm going anon so I can communicate, even if nobody knows it's me! :(

Hello Rob,

It's a little late in the day but it's Kate aka GothicBohemian. I'm so glad you were able to use my photo as an aid in this manner. It genuinely is a special place to me so it's lovely to learn others find it so also!

Kate :-)
