G. V. II

Pair of houses. Circa early C17 with C18, C19 and C20 additions. Rendered stone
rubble walls. Hipped thatch roof, gabled slate roof to front addition. 2 brick
axial stacks and one small rubble axial stack.
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right.
Lower room has fireplace on end wall and newel stairs behind. In front of it is
an C18 wing with C19 extension in front of it. Above the lower room the house
appears to have undergone a heavy remodelling circa early C20, the passage has
become a stairhall and the hall has a fireplace at its higher end. An early C20
room was added at the end of the lower room. Presently divided into 2 houses at
the lower end of the passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with wing projecting from
right-hand end in 2 stages, the end part with a slate roof. Circa early C20 2 and
4-light casements on lst floor. On the ground floor are 2 early C19 tripartite
20-.pane sash windows with French windows to their left. To the right the thatch
extends in a catslide to form an open porch over a C20 glazed door. The wing has
a C20 porch on its inner face and a C20 plank door at its gable end.
Interior: Rock Cottage, former lower room, has roughly chamfered ceiling beams,
an open fireplace with a plain slate lintel and stone newel stairs behind. Peep
0' Day has some unusual reused pieces of carved timber on its stairhall including
one over the door depicting the face of a woman - these are reputed to have come
from a ship.
