Keepers Cottage was, along with most Main Street buildings, built in the 1700s. In 1953 Norman Edgar and Joyce Edgar resided there followed by postmistress Miss Ellis. Edna Watkins lived in the house up until 1995. The house was then rented to Seth Armstrong and Betty Eagleton from Home Farm Estate. In 1998 the house is put up for sale, and is bought by Biff Fowler, who continues to allow the couple to live in their home. In 2003, Seth went on an extended holiday to Australia and never returned to the village. Biff later signed the cottage over to Betty after Seth's death in 2005.
Victoria Sugden bought the cottage from Betty Eagleton at a cut price in 2012 on the condition that she and Alan Turner stayed there rent-free for as long as they wanted. Alan died in his sleep in October 2013 and Betty kept on staying in the house between her travels but permanently moved to Australia in May 2015.
In July 2016, Gabby Thomas and her best friend Liv Flaherty broke into Keepers Cottage and stole Victoria's dresses. However, Victoria arrived and Gabby and Liv make a run. Gabby nearly got caught when Victoria attacked her in a hood but managed to get away.
In March 2018, stuffing with brain damage, Rebecca nearly burns down Keepers Cottage whilst going out to get pain medication, accidentally leaving her son Seb on his own. Later, Aaron Dingle breaks into the house, saves Seb and manages to stop the house from burning down.
