ST 20 NW
7/114 Phillishayes Cottage
- II
Cottage, once 2 smaller cottages. Probably mid - late C17, thoroughly refurbished
and rearranged in the mid - late C19 when it was divided into 2 cottages, renovated
and reunited to a single house circa 1970. Plastered local stone rubble with some
cob in the rear wall; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch
Plan and development: 3-room plan house facing south-west (backing onto the lane)
and built down the hillslope. Downhill at the left (north-west) end is an unheated
room, now used as the kitchen. Most of the partition between this room and the
centre room has been removed. The centre and right rooms have an axial stack
between serving back-to-back fireplaces. The house is mostly the result of the mid
- late C19 refurbishment but the stack and outer walls appear to be earlier. It may
have been built as 2 cottages but more likely was built as a small lobby entrance 3-
room plan house with the right room a parlour, the middle room a kitchen and the
left room a dairy/buttery. 2 storeys with leanto outshots each end.
Exterior: 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. The 2 former cottage
front doorways still remains but both contain C20 doors. The main roof is half-
hipped each end. The rear wall is blind.
Interior: has plain C19 and C20 carpentry detail. The centre room fireplace was
rebuilt in the C19 but the right room is C17 with an oak-framed front (the 2 posts
are C20 replacements).
