Pair of houses. Stable End is late C16/early C17 bastle, remodelled when
Yew Tree Cottage (dated 1699 with initials MV & TV, on lintel) added; both
refenestrated early C19 when outbuilding to south of Stable End added,
incorporated into house during alterations c.1970. Rubble, in places massive,
with some dressings; slate roofs. East elevation: each house 2 storeys,
2 irregular bays. Off-centre renewed doors,chamfered (Stable End) and wave-
moulded (Yew Tree Cottage) surrounds with flattened triangular heads in
square frames; 12-pane sash windows. Original bastle quoins to right of
Stable End; to left l-bay former outbuilding with 2 small windows. Coped
gables, stepped stone ridge and right end stacks. Rear elevation: Yew Tree
Cottage shows blocked 1st floor window in recessed chamfered surround.
Interior: Stable End retains central byre entrance in south end (now opening
into kitchen, in former outbuilding); this retains its original harr-hung
batten door in pegged oak frame, a very rare survival. Heavy transverse
ceiling beams and plain C18 (?) fireplace. Yew Tree Cottage has a similar
fireplace with a strainer beam or sawn-off bressumer above; at 1st floor level
a good fireplace of c.1699 with similar moulding; and similar head form to
