Dottie's Cottage could not be more different from Melrose Villa but it has a very firm place in my heart because it too was made with love. The love this time was of a father for his small daughter. Built roughly fifty years ago it was made to look like, for then, an ultra modern split level house. It was fully furnished in the style of the day and the little girl, whose name was Vicky, played with it for many years.
The present occupant is Dottie who loves all creatures and cares little for material things - hence the rather odd assortment of furniture. Many of them were "good enough for her parents and are, therefore, good enough for her"!! She never wants to leave her cottage.
