- Godfreys Cottage
House, once part of larger house. C16 core, much rebuilt in early C17, modernised
and enlarged circa 1930. Plastered cob on rubble footings, probably brick
extension; rubble stack with C20 brick top; thatch roof.
Main front block facing north comprises wide through passage containing C20 stairs
and single room to left (east) with rear lateral stack. It is thought to occupy the
through passage and service room of a C16 3-room-and-through-passage plan house with
hall and inner room now divided off as adjoining Tavy Cottage (q.v.). Circa 1930
extension at right angles to rear of passage at right (west) end. 2 storeys.
Irregular 3-window front of circa 1930 large-pane casements with glazing bars.
Circa 1930 door and porch with glazed front and hipped tile roof at right end to
passage. The front is stucco treated to appear like coursed rusticated masonry with
larger quoins on corners and relieving arches over the windows. Roof is gable-ended
to left and continuous with Tavy Cottage (q.v.) to right.
Interior is largely result of C20 modernisations but includes some C17 exposed
features. Large early C17 rubble fireplace with high soffit-chamfered oak lintel.
The flue includes a blocked opening on right side which is thought to have been the
flue from an adjoining smoking chamber which has now been demolished. Roof of main
block of early C17 A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars with dovetail
