17/406 Pair of cottages about 25 metres
- north-west of Higher Farm


2 cottages, probably one build. Late C17 origins, the left end remodelled in the
C18. Rendered cob and stone rubble; slate roof, gabled at left end, hipped at right
end; projecting left end stack, 2 rear lateral stacks.
Plan: Single depth main range, 3 rooms wide with a passage to left of centre with a
stair to the rear, access to the stair from the left hand room. A fourth room, a
narrow unheated service room, at the right end. Probably an adaptation or
remodelling of a C17 3 room and passage plan, lower end to the left. There is a
thick cross wall between the 2 large right hand rooms and there may have been some
rebuilding or addition at the right end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3:2 window front (first floor window right
blind), the left hand cottage 3 window wide with a central C19 or C20 plank front
door with a horizontal porch hood with a decorated canopy. C19 or C20 plank front
door to the right hand cottage at the extreme right. C19 or C20 2 and 3 light timber
casement windows with glazing bars except one which is a late C20 replacement.
Interior: The left hand room has a C17 chamfered scroll-stopped crossbeam. The C18
stair that rises in the rear right corner has a winder with a very wide straight
flight (above the passage). The rear lateral stack of the centre room is partly
concealed by the left hand partition of the room; there seems to be some evidence of
a plank and muntin screen, covered by wallpaper, on the right hand wall. C18 2-panel
doors and one door with fielded panels survive in the left hand cottage. The right
hand cottage interior is plain, with no exposed carpentry. A winder stair with a
straight flight rises from within the service room at the right end.
Roof: Right hand end only inspected. A-frames. Group value with Higher Farm.
