Eclectic Home Tour – Filly Island

On a tiny island in the Cotswolds of England lies Filly Island and this charming cottage. This tiny 35 foot x 10 foot structure has lived many lives including it’s original use in the 1750’s when it housed a cart that a horse pulled for the mill up the stream. It later became storage space for apples from the village orchard and later a garage and play house for the local kids – who are now 80+ years old!
