plain ridge half-hipped at the left end, hipped at the right end ; axial stack to
left of centre heating left hand room of range ; there was formerly an axial stack to

single depth, 2 room wide arrangement with a through passage (rear door opposed to
front door) and a hall/kitchen to the right heated from the dismantled stack and a
smaller unheated service room to the left. A slightly projecting 1 room plan
addition at the left end with a separate entrance is heated from the left hand axial
stack and may originally have been an outbuilding (considerably lower floor level).
A single storey addition at the right end is reached under the lintel of the former
right hand fireplace. The left hand partition of the putative passage no longer
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:2:1 window front, the left hand end slightly projecting to

single-storey right end addition. Front door approximately central to the original
range with a thatched porch canopy ; 2 2-light ground floor windows, 2 2-light first
floor windows all glazed with C20 diamond leaded panes.
The left hand addition has a door at the left and 1 similar casement to the right of
the door, the right end addition has 1 similar casement.
Interior: Largely modernized. The former hall/kitchen has an C18 cross beam with
runout stops and a similar fireplace lintel. The extreme left hand room has a rough
cross beam.
Roof: 1 truss over the right hand end of the range is visible wih straight principals
pegged and mortised at the apex.
Exeland Cottage is adjacent to the roadside on the hill leading north out of
