4/186 Blackaller Hotel

Hotel, formerly farmhouse. Late C18/early C19, altered in C20. Rendered granite
rubble walls. Dressed stone voussoLr arch into outbuilding section of house. Slate
roof with gable ends and overhanging eaves supported on brackets.
Adjoining the house to the left end, in the same line, as an integral part of the
building is a stable and coach house or barn. The left-hand part of the house has 2
main rooms either side of a central stair hall, both were probably originally
heated. To the right end is the service/kitchen quarters. Single depth throughout.
Left-hand of outbuilding converted to flat.
2 storeys. The house section has a symmetrical 3-window front to the left with
central doorway. Windows are 12-pane sashes with horns on first floor and 16-pane
sashes with horns on ground floor, probably mid C19 replicas. 4-panelled C19 door.
Further 1 window section to the right at an irregular distance with 16-pane ground
floor window and 2-light 4-pane sash above on first floor. The outbuilding section
to the left has an asymmetrical 3-window front. First floor left-hand window is 16-
pane sash the other 2 have 12 panes. Between them on the ground floor is a tally
carriage doorway with segmental dressed voussoir stone arch with projecting keystone
and round window above stable doorway to right and left of double doorway with
tethering ring in between. To far left on the ground floor is a wider doorway. To
right-hand gable end on first floor is a probably original semi-circular headed
window with brick surround. Attached at left gable end is a row of early C19
Interior contains early C19 staircase with turned newels and stick balusters.
Panelled shutters to windows of the 2 main ground floor rooms. Open fireplace with
plain wooden lintel in kitchen.
Running in front of the house parallel to it is a leat which subsequently joins the
parallel stream. This possibly supports the reputation that this building was
originally an old woollen factory.
This building has an unusual plan form more akin to a type of farmhouse found in
Northern England than to the typical Devon farmhouse of its period, although its
possible industrial purpose may have influenced this. Whilst recent changes in use
and alterations have modified the plan form the facade of the house remains
relatively unchanged and reflects the original layout of the house.
