Tordown Farmhouse


Farmhouse, probably C16 to C17. Rendered stone and cob. Concrete tiled roof.
Brick stack at right end. 3 cells but unusually a lobby entry plan with stack
heating hall and room to left. 2 storeys. C19 to C20 fenestration. Ground floor
has a 3-light casement to each end room and one 3-light and a 2-light casement to
hall to right of doorway with late C19 door. Dairy outshut to rear. The interior
is largely unaltered since the C19 with the hall still serving as the main cooking
and living area. Chamfered beams to rooms at each end, the inner room retaining
most of the original joists. Creamery to rear wall of hall to right of entry to
rear stair turret with winder staircase. There is no access to roofspace but heavy
protruding purlins suggests much of the early roof structure survives.
