lean-to canopy over door. C20 extension to rear.
Interior is unaltered with original arched doorway to stairs, original 2 panel doors

Similarities between this building and the round houses of Veryan nearby suggest that
this must be by the same builder, Hugh Rowe of Lostwithiel and possibly for the same
patron, The Reverend Jeremiah Trist. Round Cottage is a much more intact example.
