3/177 Hartland Quay Hotel


Hotel. Early C18 extended in C19. Stone rubble walls, whitewashed to right-hand
half, rendered to left-hand half. Gable-ended slate roof with stone coping at
right-hand gable-end. 2 brick axial stacks.
Plan: the original building comprises the right-hand half of what now stands.
Built as merchant's house with adjoining malthouse, stables and stores. The
building was divided into 3 sections by 2 massive internal walls. The southern part
contained the malthouse, stables and stores, with a hayloft on the floor above which
had access to the higher road at the rear. A third floor in the roof space was used
as a poultry house early in the C20. The large malthouse chimney ran up the inside
of the end wall. The central and northern sections were also of 3 storeys and in
the top floor was the granary. At one stage the ground floor of the central section
was a bank. The northern part of the building was the merchant's house. Converted
to hotel in the late C19 which was probably when the building was extended.
Exterior: 3 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5:8 window front, the original building to
the right with a flat brick string above the ground floor. On the top floor all the
windows are early C20 8-pane sashes apart from a contemporary bay window 2nd from
the right. The 3 left-hand windows are at a lower level. On the ground floor are 5
original window openings with chamfered surrounds and brick relieving arches over
C20 2-pane sashes. An additional window has been inserted towards the left-hand
end. Below the eaves at the left-hand end is a loading hatch formerly for the
granary. 2 lean-to C20 porches to right and left of centre with C20 part-glazed
doors and another door at the left-hand end. The right-hand gable has 2 original
angle buttresses at the corners which have shaped tops. The C19 addition at theleft
end has 2 large 2-storey bays to the middle and top floors to left and right of
centre with separate hipped roof. These have later C19 or early C20 sashes.
Windows below and between them are early C19 sashes of 16 and 12-panes. Later C19
sashes to the right. 2 C20 part-glazed doors to left and right and left of centre.
Lower 2-window addition at left-hand end.
Interior: not inspected.
