Former vicarage, later hotel, now private house. C18, extended in the C19 and C20.
Granite rubble with granite dressings. Slate hanging to the tower. Dry Delabole
slate laid in diminishing courses with stuccoed stacks over the gable ends.
Plan: in the C18 probably a U-shaped plan (still extant) with 2 rooms at the front,
the right-hand room much wider; passage beteen leading to stair hall; probably
original 1 room plan wing at right angles behind the right hand room and deeper 2-
room plan wing at right angles behind the left hand room. In circa the late C19 the
left hand wing was extended on its rear left including a tall tower and some C20
extension at the rear.
Exterior : 2 storeys. Regular 4-window north front with doorway under the first
floor second from left window. Tall openings with heads of ground floors openings
near sills of first floor openings. 16-pane hornless sashes, circa early C19 or C20
copies. C20 porch and C20 partly glazed addition in front of the left hand window
The 3-storey tower is set back on the left and has a central bay broken forward and
surmounted by a triangular pediment. 12-pane horned sashes.
Interior not inspected.
Some C20 alteration but the house is important in the way it groups with the church
and the other listed buildings.
