ST 02 SE
Stables approximately 4 metres
south of Freathingcott Farmhouse
Stables. Probably mid C19. Local stone rubble with larger, more carefully-dressed,
quoins and voussoirs; interlocking tile roof, maybe thatch originally.
Plan: stable block built down the hillslope and facing into the courtyard to east.
The north end is terraced into the hillslope. Haylofts over.
Exterior: the taller main block front would be symmetrical except for a hayloft
window to left. There is a pair of stable doorways each with a window toward the
end, all these with segmental arches over. Central first floor loading hatch (and
another into the right (north) gable-end from the terrace). To left of this is a
lower block set back very slightly from the main front . It contains 2 round-headed
doorways, each with a ventilation slit to right, and at the right end a doorway with
hayloft loading hatch directly above. The C19 joinery detail here is mostly well-
preserved including the plain mullioned windows with internal shutters. The roof is
Interior: has plain but sturdy carpentry detail. These stables with the other
listed farmbuildings around the farmyard form an exceptionally good group of
traditional farmbuildings serving nearby Freathingcott Farmhouse (q.v). The visual
impact of the whole group is enhanced by their setting on a steep hillslope.
