    Another room featured old furniture, a desk and a number of electrical appliances.

    During his exploration of the property, Mr Smith also discovered what appeared to be the photographs of the occupant’s grandchildren and pets on the mantelpiece.

    Mr Smith estimated that the property has been left abandoned for at least 20 years due to the expiry dates on the food.

    他说: ‘Someone had been there before me because the door to the abandoned cottage was just left wide open.

    ‘But the house was practically untouched and there was no graffiti or vandalism which was great to see.

    ‘I think the place must have been left for about twenty years judging by the dates on the food left in the kitchen and the layers of dust covering everything.

    ‘I came across a set of photo slides, showing tribespeople in remote communities, so whoever lived in the house obviously travelled all around the world.

    ‘There was also an amazing photo album full of Indian steam trains which was fascinating.

    ‘All of their possessions were left in the house, which makes me think that maybe whoever lived here, lived alone and had nobody to sort out their stuff after they died or ended up in hospital.

    ‘It can be sad seeing all of a person’s possessions just left to gather dust, but it’s also amazingly interesting to step inside such an interesting time capsule.

    Mr Smith later took to Instagram to write: ‘A little tiny home hidden far out in the countryside completely left for nature to reclaim all the wonderful memories that were made here.

    ‘It made me sad that there was nobody who wanted to save anything here, but like always there are so many reasons why these places are left like this, sadly like most we will never know the reasons why.
