Have you seen this? There is mention of it on this walk:

It should be around here somewhere:

Added: the diagram of the walks seems way out when comparing to the NLS map.

It looks to be down this lane (see sign at gate):

I can't see a Spotted Dog Cottage, but the walking map shows Spotted Cow Cottages, though I can't see that on the maps.  :-\

According to the current Ordnance Survey Map Old Smokedown Cottages are located where Old Smokedown Farm used to be.

The footpath map is confusing because it is not orientated north-south as one would expect (see north point in top right corner)
