Labour in Vain must be one of the first dwellings in Downalong and was originally an ale house in the town. Massive granite walls, views from most windows and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere prove the point.
The cottage has been completely refurbished and sensitively modernised with white painted beams and walls, discreet lighting and thick granite recesses. It has wooden flooring throughout except the kitchen which has quarry tiles. It is approached via a suntrap courtyard looking down Mount Zion which is traffic free.
