4/105 Yonder Thatch


House, former farmhouse. Mid-late C17, possibly earlier core. Plastered granite
stone rubble; granite stacks, one rebuilt with brick, both with plastered brick
tops; thatch roof.
Plan: 3-room plan cottage facing south, the rear is terraced into the slope. The
main rooms are at each end and each has an end stack. The left (western) room was
the kitchen but the chimney has been partly rebuilt. The right room was the
parlour. Central entrance lobby and small unheated room behind. It was probably a
dairy. The stairs rise alongside the dairy. Easton Cottage (q.v.) adjoins on the
right side and it is possible that the 2 cottages originally made a single
farmhouse. However, the 2 have been self-contained dwellings since the C17. 2
Exterior: symmetrical frontage arranged around a central doorway which contains a
C20 part-glazed and panelled door. The 2 ground floor and 4 first floor windows are
all similar late C19-early C20 casements with glazing bars. Roof butts that of
adjoining Easton Cottage (q.v.) to right and is hipped to left.
Interior: both main rooms have a soffit-chamfered beams, the kitchen crossbeam is
unstopped, the parlour axial beam has straight cut stops to the front. The kitchen
fireplace was rebuilt in the late C19-early C20 but the parlour fireplace is
original; built of granite with a soffit-chamfered and step-stopped oak lintel. The
roof is not accessible but the feet of straight principals show and suggest that the
original A-frame truss roof survives.
