GV II


House partly in use as restaurant. Circa C16 core with substantial late C20
alterations. Probably cob, whitewashed and plastered with thatched roof hipped at
left end, gabled at right end. Large projecting stack at right end, rendered axial
stack on ridge, stack at left end. Changes in plane of front suggest several builds
but the right-hand end is probably the earlier part of the house and may have been an
open hall with a stack inserted backing on to a through passage. Present plan single
depth with central rear wing. 2 storeys at the left end, single storey at the right
end, probably with attic, thatch eaves eyebrowed over a window above the front door.
Long irregular 5-window front with scattered fenestration. C20 porch on centre
front, further entrance on front at left. C19 and C20 2-light casements with glazing
bars. Access to interior unobtainable at time of survey, 1985 but true cruck
recorded.
