Win A Dream Cottage (Mail)

Recommended Posts

Dream Cottage Competition

Does anyone buy the Mail? If so please post the daily on-line password here then we can all enter the competition :)

I don't actually like the cottage, it's far too twee, but at an alleged £320K value it should sell for a worthwhile amount.

I'm sure the Daily Mail have done this 'Dream Cottage' thing for several years now and about seven years ago the cottage was worth £300k.

:unsure:

If HPI persists, cut to 2015 and the Daily Mail's giveaway - 'win your dream studio flat!'

Take a wander around and savour the rural idyll that is Elmswell, Suffolk.

Haha!! :lol: fantastic, it really puts it into perspective!!! That's what I call local knowledge!

When looking at the Mail's photos, somehow trains and industrial estates don't come to mind! You're right it's not likely to be worth £320k at any rate...

btw looks like you're not the only one to be warning people about this cottage:

Don't know if the lady they refer to read your post but she certainly found the same link on Google Maps <_<

ooooh is that not a power line passing by the cottage ? And according to The Mail are not power lines one of the myriad aspects of modern life that give you cancer ?

Only the ones whose field of influence is less than that of the mains cabling running through the wall 5" from your body in bed.

Is that a distinction that the Mail makes ?

:rolleyes:

Okay I know it's free but it is a bit precious.

I find this family rather sinister. There's something of the 'Stepford' about them.

Looks like a low voltage line according to Google Streetview.

The garden backs on to a double railway track and there's a trading estate on the other side of the track.

It's not very rural, surrounded by some very ordinary properties.

Still, not bad for nothing.

Those smiles are definitely not human. I think I saw them in the display windows at Selfridge's last week.

Actually the cottage reminds me of something out of a child's nightmare. I'm expecting an angry clown to jump out at any time.

I thought a consolidated list would be useful, I was going to edit my original post to add it but don't seem to be able to do so
