5/52 Cheriton Cottage
Cottage. Late C17. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, corrugated
asbestos roof gabled at ends, formerly thatched. Axial stack, left gable end stack
capped below the asbestos roof.
The original plan was a 3 room and cross passage house, with the stack of the
hall/kitchen backing on to the passage and a small unheated inner room. The lower
end may originally have been unheated. The hall/kitchen has a 2-storey shallow bay
to the front under a catslide roof. The eaves have been raised, probably in the C19
when the lower end stack may have been added forming a parlour.

the front door into the former passage. The projecting bay has 1 ground and 1 first
floor 3-light casement, 3 panes per light. 1 small first floor 2-light casement, 2

Interior The passage has been truncated to the rear. Good plank and batten door
with a finger latch and chamfered C17 doorframe into the hall/kitchen which has an
open fireplace with a timber lintel which has been modified in the C20. Unchamfered
ceiling beams of large scantling to the hall/kitchen, stair against the rear wall of
the hall. Roofspace not inspected but may be of interest.
