- Paddocks Cottage and Nymet Cottage
2 cottages. Early C19. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone rubble stack
topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
2 adjoining cottages which were built together facing south. They have mirror plans
comprising large inner heated rooms and small outer unheated rooms. Central stack
in party wall serving back-to-back fireplaces. Paddocks to left (west) now has door
in end wall through C20 porch. 2 storeys. Originally a symmetrical front, each
cottage with 2 windows and central door. Nymet Cottage preserves the original
arrangement although windows containing leaded glass and door with monopitch hood
are C20 replacements. Paddocks Cottage also has C20 casements with glazing bars but
the door is now blocked by a window and the cottage is entered through a slate-
roofed porch on the end. Roof is half-hipped each end.
Interiors have plain carpentry detail. The larger room of Paddocks Cottage has a
roughly finished axial beam but similar in Nymet Cottage has been replaced. Both
have rubble fireplaces with plain oak lintels and ovens towards rear. During
renovation work in Nymet Cottage a half-penny of 1806 was discovered under a window
