Cottage, in the right half of the rear range, has a small-pane casement and a
doorway, both in the lower section to right of the stack; a further
single-storey section on the end of, the range is probably C19, and is built as a
grotto with an archway (now glazed) and several recesses. Steep-pitched roofs to
