GV II


Stable block to Stowford Rectory (now the Stowford Hotel) converted to a dwelling
and now a separate property. Circa 1870s with a late C19/early C20 addition. Stone
rubble with granite and brick dressings, slate roof gabled at ends, 1 C20 stack on
ridge. Gothic style. The range consists of a castellated tower, square on plan at
the left end and adjoining stable range and a coach house with a coped gable at the
right end which is probably a late C19 or early C20 addition. 2-storey tower,
single-storey stable and coach house range, 5 windows in all. The tower has 2 flying
buttresses at the left-hand end, a pyramidal slate roof rising above the battlemented
parapet and corner pinnacles. A chamfered granite segmental doorway on the front has
a square-headed hoodmould and carved label stops. A first floor window with a
square-headed hoodmould and label stops was formerly a loft entrance. A polygonal
stair turret to the right of the tower has a slit window. The stable range is
slightly set back from the tower and is of 5 bays, with a buttress with set-offs
marking the left-hand bay. A C20 gabled stone porch in the third bay leads into the
original stable entrance. A 4-light timber mullioned window in the left-hand bay has
a king mullion, square-headed hoodmould and diagonal leaded panes. The 3 remaining
windows are 2-light casements with diagonal leaded panes. The coach house has 2
arched coach entrances flanked by narrower doorways with flat arches all with
chamfered brick architraves.
Interior modernized for house conversion. The range was built by the Wollocombe
family who were the rectors of Stowford and is said to have been designed with a view
to conversion to a dwelling.
