18/169 Ruperts Cottage and attached


Cottage, now part of hotel, and walls. Probably mostly C17 but may have a
medieval origin; altered C20. Limestone rubble with wooden lintels;
Stonesfield-slate roof with rubble gable stack. 2-unit plan, altered. One storey
plus attic. Front has, to left of centre, an ancient double-leaf oak door in a
massive ovolo-moulded frame set within an earlier wider opening. The open oak
porch, with crenellated tiebeam, ogee spandrels and undulating bargeboards, may
be C15 and is perhaps reset. Tall flanking cross windows have renewed frames
with leaded glazing, and there is a further small 2-light casement to extreme
right. Gables and rear have inserted C20 stone-mullioned windows. Interior;
small fireplace with wooden bressumer. extensions to left and rear are not of
special architectural interest. Walled garden to north-west has walls
approximately 2.5 metres high incorporating 2-light traceried C15 window and 3
sections of early-C17 strapwork cresting. Wall extending northwards to Manor
forecourt (q.v.) includes a C16 single-light window. Wall extending
approximately 40 metres southwards includes gateway with square ashlar piers
and early-C18 vase finials, plus wrought-iron gates with scroll-work overthrow
which may be C18. The cottage was for long used as an outbuilding but is reputed
to have been a hiding place of Prince Rupert.
