ST 20 SW
11/13 Delphinium Cottage (East
- Holmsleigh Cottage on O.S)
- II
Cottage, former farmhouse. Early - mid C17, possibly earlier core, modernised with
an extension in the mid C20. Plastered local stone rubble, maybe with some cob;
stone rubble stacks, one with its original Beerstone ashlar chimneyshaft with
soffit-moulded coping; thatch roof.
Plan and development: 3-room plan cottage built across a gentle hillslope and
facing south-south-east, say south. The left (west) end room, the present kitchen,
is unheated. The centre room is heated by an axial stack backing onto the unheated
room. The right (east) end room is a gable-end stack and has a stair turret
projecting square to rear.
The left room is a C20 extension and the stack to the centre room may be a C20
insertion. The 2 rooms of the original house appear to be part of a larger house;
probably the hall and inner room of a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house. The
passage and service end room have been demolished. All the original features appear
to date from a single early-mid C17 building phase. 2 storeys with a C20 porch on
the west end and C20 outshots to rear.
Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 3-window front with a small fourth first
floor window. Most are C20 casements with glazing bars but the 2 right ground floor
windows are early-mid C17 Beerstone ashlar 3-light windows with ovolo-moulded
mullions, hoodmoulds and containing rectangular panes of leaded glass. At the right
end there is an inserted doorway containing a C20 glazed door and contemporary hood.
The roof is gable-ended. C20 porch and present main doorway in left (west) end
Interior: the centre room has a C17 crossbeam with deep chamfers and step stops.
If there is an early fireplace here it is blocked by the C20 grate. The right room
crossbeam is chamfered with scroll stops. Here there is a large fireplace with an
oak-framed front and it contains an oven. The staircase is C20 but the turret is
thought to be C17. The roof is early - mid Cl7; A-frame trusses with pegged
dovetail-shaped lap-jointed collars.
