9/190 Cleave Hotel

Public house, formerly a farmhouse. C16 with late C19 range at rear. Granite
rubble, covered with roughcast at the front; added rear range is of painted brick.
Thatched roof, half-hipped to right; rear range is slated. On ridge, slightly
off-centre to right, 2 separate granite ashlar chimneystacks with tapered tops;
brick stack on left gable. Rear range has red and yellow brick stacks. Probably a
3-room and through-passage plan originally, although there is now only 1 long room
to left of the main entrance. The plan is unusual in that the 'lower room' to
right of main entrance seems to have been the hall, judging from the character of
its fireplace. It may be that the house has been extended at the left-hand end. 2
storeys. Irregular 4-window front, with windows at differing levels; all have C19
wood casements with 3 panes per light. Main doorway, to right, has bead-moulded
frame and 4-panel early C18 door with wrought-iron strap-hinges; raised-and-
fielded ovolo-moulded panels. Left-hand doorway, which is probably C19, has 4-
panel door in bead-moulded frame; 4-pane fanlight, above with old glass. Both
doors have C20 rustic wooden porches. Cobbled surface in front of left-hand two-
thirds of building.
Interior: right-hand ground-storey room has large fireplace backing on to passage.
Right jamb is a chamfered granite monolith with pyramid stop at the foot; left
jamb rebuilt. Heavy wood lintel with chamfer cut away, but at left end a stop, a
sort of stepped straight-cut, survives. In left side of fireplace is an oven with
ogee-headed stone-framed opening, and shallow granite shelf in front; domed brick
interior. Upper floor beams are plastered in, forming a large sunk panel in centre
of ceiling, outlined with a moulded plaster cornice. Through-passage is paved with
stone slabs. To the right the back of the fireplace in right-hand room (already
described) is of granite ashlar with chamfered plinth and cornice. Left-hand room
also has fireplace backing on to passage, an extremely unusual arrangement; it has
plain stone jambs and a plain wood lintel. The left-hand front window has panelled
shutters and window-seat. Rest of interior not inspected.
A barn to the north-west, probably part of the farm buildings, is separately
