Suspicious Person

Just to make people aware, a man came up my drive and was looking about. When I asked if I could help he said he was looking for a holiday cottage but he didn’t know the name of the cottage or any information about where it was. I have reported the incident to the police. The man is about 5′ 6″ tall, mid 40s and driving a 2 door silver Focus ( I think).
