- The Old Cottage and
The Cottage

2 cottages, formerly a single house. Late C16-early C17 with C17 alterations and
probably C18 subdivision. C20 extension to The Cottage. Plastered cob on rubble
footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof and
slate to C20 work.
2 adjoining cottages in a much-altered 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing
south. The Cottage at the right (east) end occupies the former service room with
C20 rebuilt outshots and single storey extension set back from front on right end.
Former service room has end stack. The Old Cottage occupies hall, passage and
inner room of the original house although the layout has been much altered. The
original passage at the right end (adjoining The Cottage) has been disused and the
hall-passage screen removed. A passage has been inserted at the upper end of the
hall. The hall has a projecting front lateral stack. The former inner room end
was apparently rebuilt in C18 at the time of subdivision and now comprises one
domestic room and a narrow store at the end, the former served by an axial stack.
The range once continued further left (west). 2 storeys.
Main block has overall irregular 4-window front, the 3 to The Old Cottage being C20
casements with glazing bars, the 1 to The Cottage C20 casements with leaded glass
and including a C20 bay window. The doorway to The Old Cottage (to left of the
hall stack) is C20 behind contemporary monopitch and slate-roofed porch. The hall
stack projection is carried left as far as the former inner room. Roof is gable-
ended to left and a very steep, almost vertical, hip at right end. A window and
door in C20 extension to The Cottage.
Interior. The only late C16-early Cl7 feature exposed in The Cottage is the rubble
fireplace with soffit-chamfered and late step stopped oak lintel. The plain joist
ceiling is probably C20. The roof here is inaccessible. In The Old Cottage there
is a late C16-early C17 half beam in the original passage area which is also
soffit-chamfered with late step stops. The hall fireplace of about the same time
is rubble-built and although the soffit of the oak lintel has been cut away it is
noteworthy having a mantle shelf with coved soffit cut from the same timber. The
crossbeam here is C17, deeply soffit-chamfered with large scroll stops. No early
features show at the inner room end except a probably C18 A-frame truss with pegged
lap-jointed collar. Roof elsewhere is inaccessible.
