4/125 Manor Cottage
Small house. Circa late C16, extended in C20. Slatestone rubble walls, roughly
coursed. Asbestos slate roof gabled at left end and hipped to right. Rubble
stack with dripcourses and tapering cap at left gable end of main part.
Plan: Unusual plan consisting of one large room with a fireplace at its left-hand end, beyond which is a small unheated wing parallel to it with an early doorway connecting the 2 on the 1st floor, suggesting that they must be contemporary. From the quality of the building it seems possible that it was once a larger house. C20 leanto added in front of wing.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Main range has asymmetrical 1-window front of a C20 3-light casement on the 1st floor and a 2-light one below set in an opening with a
chamfered head. C20 leanto porch at centre with part-glazed door connects the
house to a small thatch-roof former outbuilding in front of it.
Interior: main room has substantial chamfered and unstopped cross beams. Modern
fireplace set in the earlier opening with the old wooden lintel still visible
above. The doorway beside the fireplace, leading into the wing, has a frame with
a slightly cranked head. Upstairs is a similar doorway in the same position, but
the frame of this one has a peaked head. Wooden winder staircase. Roof space not accessible at time of survey and timbers may be of interest but do not show on the 1st floor.
