10/195 Farmbuildings forming the farmyard
- and to the north west of Beara
Farmbuildings forming a small planned farmyard. Probably 1856 and contemporary with
Beara Farmhouse (qv) but incorporating a circa C19 threshing barn. Designed for the
Bedford Estate. Stone rubble with slate roofs, the masonry of the barn
incorporating large pieces of local quartz. The north range is 2-storey and consists
of a threshing barn with an open-fronted shelter shed with loft over adjoining at the
right, engine house adjoining at the rear. A loft entrance in the barn under a
canopy carried on brackets is linked at first floor level to what was probably a
fattening house which projects into the centre of the yard. Stone walls form a
foldyard to the right of the fattening house which has splayed corners and a cart
entrance to gain access to the rear of the stalls. The south range consists of a
calf-house or shippon with 3 entrances and an adjoining carthouse. The west range
consists of 1 single-storey building and 1 small building with loft over. The north
side of the farmyard is formed by a largely rebuilt stone rubble wall to the
foldyard. A modestly-scaled but relatively unspoilt planned farmyard with an
attractive barn in conjunction with its farmhouse.
The 7th Duke of Bedford was a "devoted improver" (Spring) of the farms on the
Tavistock Estate and his policies and practices are described in David Spring, The
English Landed Estate in the Nineteenth Century (1963).
