The story begins with main character (unsure of their sex, but it's only one person) driving down a road, surrounded by farmland, maybe some trees and things. They go off track, not sure if its in the car or walking, but they come across a house.
Now I can't really recall what happens at the house, nothing bad, I believe they meet a woman and maybe some kids.
They leave the place and go on their way, all good and normal. Later on they decide to go back to the house, but they can't find it. There is nothing there, just an empty field, maybe some small remnants of ruins of a house, fencing etc. But otherwise, nothing.
I am not sure if the story explains what happens, but I was left with the impression that it was some kind of temporary time travel tied to the area, rather than a ghostly house. Kind of reminds me of the Versailles time slip.
I read this between 1997-2007. It was in a book of short stories, scifi, paranormal and/or horror stories. I live in Australia, though I doubt its relevant. I am not sure what country it is set in, nor the time period/s. Not much detail I know, but hopefully it gets me something.
