Hornshill Cottage


Dwelling, reputed to have been at some period an Inn. C17 and later. Painted rubble,
some squared marlstone block in south-east gable, to A38. L-plan with return wing at
back, north side, stack one bay in from gable to road. South-west facade, two
storeys, irregularly spaced 2 or 3-light casements under wood lintols; gable to road,
3-light casement under wood lintol and remains of stone drip, plus 2-light casement
with some leading. Return gable, north side, wide plank door (to cellar) with wood
lintol, 2 small 2-light casements over; some evidence of this part being raised, in
brickwork. Entrance through C20 door in re-entrant angle under modern lean-to open
verandah. Interior: large open fire, scratched on bressumer 'W.H. 1770'; timber
framed partition opposite; staircase was formerly to right of this fireplace, which

A property of the Berkeley Estate at time of survey, this building lies up on an
embankment beside the A38, and is prominent in approach from the south.
