4/23 Tea rooms and two cottages
adjoining on east


Probably stables with two cottages added later; the stables were once partly used as
a laundry but are now tea rooms. Circa late C17 or early C18, the cottages added in
circa late C18 or early C19. Stone rubble with brick vaulting on interior. Rag
slate roof with hipped and gable ends. Brick axial and end stacks.
Plan: Earlier range on left of double depth plan with tea rooms to front and disused
laundry to rear. The original purpose is uncertain, possible stables although the
right hand room which continues, now undivided from front to rear is groin-vaulted
with particularly fine quality brick. Adjoining to right are 2 double depth 2-room
cottages, each with entrances on left and front room on right heated by an axial and
end stack.
Exterior: 2-storeys. Regular 3:1:1 window front with dressed stone segmental arches
to openings. Almost symmetrical 3-window front to tea rooms on left with gable
containing clock over central bay, central louvred cupola surmounted by a weather
vane, its fox a C20 reproduction, the original now in the tea rooms, Central part
glazed door flanked by mullion and transom window on left and 2-light casement on
right. Above 2 mullion and transom windows with a 2-light casement to right. To
left, the 2 cottages each have a C19 6-panelled door and 3-light casement with a 3-
light casement above. Side and rear elevation with mullion and transom windows, at
least one of circa late C17 and the others circa C20 replacements following the
earlier pattern. The C17 windows may have been reused, possibly originally from
Pencarrow House.
Interior: Right hand room of tea rooms has a fine brick groin-vaulted ceiling and a
circa early C19 chimney-piece.
