If you can imagine spending two weeks in and antique show room then you have the Heron Cottage.
We just finished ours and it was great. There is a bit of traffic noise as folks go to and fro to work. However what your you expect being in that 30 feet between the roadway and the river/tidal bay?
It was difficult looking after the tides to make sure they rose and fell when required and that the water foul got their fill. The eagles, osprey and heron all took their turn along with the myriad gulls, crows and ravens.
