north-east of Shilstone Farmhouse


Cow house. Probably C18. Plastered granite stone rubble; corrugated iron roof,
originally thatch.
Plan and exterior description: the building faces south-west and is unusually wide.
The ground floor is double depth and divided by an axial rubble wall with series of
cow stalls either side. Roughly central through passage. The hayloft is
uninterrupted and full width The central doorway each side has a hayloft loading
hatch directly above and there are a series of narrow slit windows either side, some
later enlarged to windows. Occasional vent to hayloft and some small apertures low
down are probably drains. Roof is half-hipped to right and to left it butts
adjoining Shilstone Cottages. ''
Interior: has plain carpentry detail including a 7-bay roof of large A-frame
trusses each employing 2 sets of pegged lap-jointed collars.
This is an unusual cow house for its time. It also forms part of a group with
Shilstone Farmhouse (q.v) and its farmbuildings in an unusually attractive location.
