I deliberately did not mention it earlier as I did not want to influence anybody. However, there is a handwritten note on the back of the card that reads "Past the mill going to Highdown".
It certainly looks like Highdown in the background, but I cannot fathom it out. Could it have been on the lower track below Highdown or in Hangleton Lane immediately below the top of Highdown? It looks as if there were high banks each side of the lane/track.
I've now had a suggestion, almost certainly correct, that the small row of cottages were located in Water Lane between Gladstone Cottages and the pathway to Greenacres Ring where a modern house is now built. The small barn at the far end appears to be drawn on both the 1876 and 1897 OS Maps.
Writing on the reverse of the card did actually suggest they were in Water Lane, but they did not correspond with the ones close to the corner with Dappers Lane (i.e. opposite the entrance to Weavers Hill). Both these terraced blocks appear to have been demolished c1937.
