In the garden

When you've had enough of the hardships of Victorian industry, you could enjoy a stroll through the cottage garden, where you will see a wide range of plants and flowers beginning to shoot. If you're lucky, you might see some local wildlife too - why not see how many different birds you can see? A perfect spot to relax and unwind.
