"Rock Cottage"


Learned about this place while fooling around online... I couldn't find anything more current as to what is happeneing with the cottage now, but I imagine it all cozy and lovely (yes, much like Bag End). Anyone know more than what I copied from a Worcestershire news paper?

July, 2007


Rock Cottage, which is hewn out of a sandstone cliff near Wolverley, Worcestershire, was last occupied in the late 1940s. Bidding started at £25,000 and interested buyers came from around the world to view it, but it was eventually sold to a neighbor for 100,000.

The cottage made of 3 adjoining caves was built in the 1770s and has no electricity or water supply but boasts a front door, windows and fireplaces, as well as a pantry, sitting room and a bedroom.  It also includes nearly five acres of mixed woodland and garden land and is being auctioned on Wednesday following the death of the previous owner.

  1. Weeeeeeeeeelllllll -- it was going to be a surprise but...

    I bought it for you! Yes, we now own the beautiful, rustic Cave Cottage and surrounding grounds. I have asked for some oil lamps (and battery powered ones) to be installed, and get this... the well is still functioning! They say the water may be a wee bit tainted with nuclear waste, but hey, you only live once.

    We can move in at the end of May, so I hope you are excited. I think we need to take Greta and Auggie with us. They would love to run through the fields with us while we tend our fruit orchards, artichoke garden, and pumpkin patches. Yeah. You can thank me later. Let's get packing!
