7/147 Vineyard Cottage


Cottage. Probably C17. Hussey suggests that it may have been used for a wine press
in the vineyard and to provide a viewing point for the gardens and park. Rendered,
with a flat roof; rear lateral stack with an ashlar freestone shaft.
Plan: Sited in the north-west corner of the vineyard, north east of Combe House. A
single cell building, square on plan, 2 storeys, with a stair turret that rises above
the roof with a doorway on to the roof.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 2-bay south front with a half-glazed C19 front door and a
probably early C18 2-light transomed small-pane casement to first floor left. The
left (west) return has 2 similar ground floor windows and one first floor window.
The stair turret is square on plan, weatherboarded above the roof, with a peaked
slate roof.
Interior: Plain.
A most unusual building, group value with Combe House and associated buildings. The
vineyard walls and terraces are separately listed. Vineyard cottage is shown on a
plan of circa 1787 reproduced in Hussey's articles on Combe in Country Life, June 9,
1955, pp. 1486-1489; June 16, 1955, pp. 1556-1559. This article also reproduces a
circa 1820 drawing which shows Vineyard Cottage. The gardens at Combe are grade II
on the Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England, Ref: SY
1487 G1312.
