13/64 (Spinnaker Cottage and Mary's
Cottage Nos 14 and 16)
House and adjoining cottage, originally a farmhouse and outbuilding. Probably
mid/late C17, outbuilding converted to cottage before 1820, C18 or C19 addition at
left end at one time a separate cottage. Rendered stone and cob, Spinnaker Cottage
(to the left) whitewashed, Mary's Cottage colourwashed ; thatched roof with a plain
ridge, hipped at left end, gabled at right end ; 2 axial stacks with brick shafts
projcting stone stack at right end with brick shaft.
Plan: The origins of the range appear to be a single depth 2 room plan farmhouse
(Spinnaker Cottage) with a larger heated room to the right, a smaller room to the
left (possibly unheated until the C18) with an entrance into the larger room facing a
C17 stair. The house has been extended to the left by a 1 room plan addition,
probably in the C18 or C19, which formerly functioned as a separate cottage. Mary's
cottage, at the right end, was probably a farmbuilding, converted to a 2 room plan
Cottage before 1820 (information from owner).
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3:2: window front, the roof of Mary's Cottage , to
the right, slightly lower. The early core has an almost symmetrical 2 window front
with a thatched porch to left of centre ; separate doorway at left into former
cottage. C20 2- and 3-light casements with diamond leaded panes. Mary's cottage has
a C20 gabled porch and iron frame casements.
Interior: C17 features to Spinnaker Cottage which has a partly blocked fireplace to
he right hand room with a C17 timber lintel, chamfered step-stopped crossbeam,
exposed joists and an unusual straight stair of solid timber baulks. The centre room
has a probably C18 fireplace with a steeply-cambered lintel. Mary's Cottage has 2
large roughly-chamfered crossbeams and later exposed joists.
Roof: Apex not inspected, straight principal rafters in Spinnaker Cottage suggest a
late C17 or early C18 roof structure.
The only thatched building surviving in the village.
