7/196 Poyers Hotel and attached barn
- (formerly listed as Poyer's Farmhouse)

- II

Farmhouse, now hotel, C15 refenestrated early C19. Whitewashed cob and rubble
with wheat-reed thatched roof, overlaid with rush matting to front. Stacks at
gable ends and lateral stack to rear. 3-room and through-passage plan, formerly
open hall with lower thatched extensions at left gable end with brick quoining
and to rear at right-angles to upper end of main range. Long barn of cob with
hipped thatched roof extends at right angles to rear of lower end, now converted
to chalets. 2-storey asymmetrical 4-window front. Main range has 3 C19 timber
sashes with eyebrow dormers and smaller 2-light casement on each floor at upper
end. 3 C18/19 hornless timber sashes 8 panes over 8 panes and off-centre single-
storey thatched porch with 6 panelled door in deep reveal, the two upper panels
with glazing. Single 2-light casement in lower extension. 2 partially patched
raised cruck trusses over hall with cambered collars with mortices in the soffits
but arch-braces removed. The blades, supporting single set of purlins and
possibly formerly second tier of threaded purlins above fail to meet but are
joined by a short saddle with no ridge purlin above. Heavy smoke-blackening
extends to lower end but not into upper end, though restricted roofspace impeded
close inspection and roof timbers may be replaced at this end.
The barn has been much altered and original roof trusses replaced except fourth
truss from east end which has raised cruck blades with short yoke, and original
purlins extending to flanking trusses only. Collar and arch-bracing removed.
