SS 80 NE
- Coddiford Farmhouse and Cottage
including cob garden wall adjoining
to south-west
- II

Farmhouse and adjoining cottage. Early C17, possibly earlier, C17 cottage extension,
refurbished in early C18. Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble stacks with C19
and C20 brick chimney shafts; slate roof (formerly thatch). Irregular group of
buildings. Basic L-plan. Main block facing south-west has 3-room-and-through-
passage plan with service room at right (south-east) end. C17 kitchen wing at right
angles to rear of passage and hall. End stack to service room and rear lateral stack
to hall. Cottage cross-wing to front of higher end originally had 2-room but now has
1-room plan and front end stack. Various C19 and C20 additions to rear. 2 storeys.
Main range has irregular 5 window front comprising casements of various size and
date. 2 first floor right and ground floor right end windows are early C18 flat-
faced mullion windows which include rectangular panes of leaded glass, much of it
original, thin and green tinted. On both floors end window has iron casement with
ornate wrought iron flat strapwork catches. Other ground floor windows and first
floor centre left are C20 replacement casements with leaded glass. 2 first floor
left C20 casements replaced the C17 oak 4-light window with ovolo-moulded mullions
now set in C20 annexe to rear. Inner (south-east) face of cottage wing has 2 window
front. Ground floor right C20 but first floor left a partly defaced oak C17 3-light
window with ovolo-moulded mullions and others are early C18 windows similar to main
block. Front end of cottage and north-west front have C20 fenestration.
Good interior. The earliest features apparent in the main block are the early C17
oak plank-and-muntin screen on lower side of passage - ovolo-moulded and scroll-
stopped muntins with central recessed panels, original doorway at rear end - and
contemporary moulded oak rear passage door frame (now converted to a window). C17
fireplace in hall of volcanic ashlar with hollow-chamfer ovolo-moulded jambs with
runout stops. The rear pentan includes round-headed oven door (now a window) and a
carved stone showing a square within a diagonally set square. Probably early C18
replacement plain oak lintel. Possibly C17, 2 plain chamfered hall crossbeams.
Service room refurbished in early C18 and includes contemporary full height cupboard
recessed into rear wall. Flanked by panelled pilasters and with moulded cornice
round-headed upper cupboard has shaped shelves and segmental headed glazed door with
broad glazing bars and H-hinges; lower cupboard has fielded panel doors. A similar
architrave frames alcove to right of fireplace (C19 chimneypiece). First floor
chamber above has early C18 full height cupboards with 6 fielded-panel doors and
doorcases as ornate as those below. Roof of early C18 A-frame trusses with pegged
lap-jointed collars. Late C17 or early C18 kitchen block has plain chamfered
crossbeam and large rubble fireplace with oak lintel, its soffit chamfered with
straight cut stops, and oven doorway (now a window). Cottage interior much rebuilt
circa 1970, but preserves plain chamfered beam at south-west end and C17 rubble
fireplace with oak lintel soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. Lintel is inscribed
1492 FP, presumably by a modern hand. From right end of the main house front a high
plastered cob wall on rubble footings and with pitched slate coping extends south-
westwards alongside front garden. It includes a round-headed doorway and series of
road-sloping volcanic rubble buttresses, 2 of the 3 with brick dressing.
