Cottage. C17 with C19 alterations. Plastered cob on rubble footings, cob stack
topped with C19 brick; thatch roof to main house, corrugated iron roof to service
1-room plan cottage facing north-west with secondary service outshot to rear.
Homeleigh is in a row of cottages with Forge House (q.v.) adjoining to left (north-
east) and Pennycott (q.v.) adjoining to right. Main room has stack in left party
wall where stack is shared with Forge House. 2 storeys. 2-window front of C20
casements with glazing bars. C20 door on right side with small window above. Roof
is gable-ended to left and continuous with roof of Pennycott to right. C19 rear
service outshot with leanto roof on lesser pitch than main room.
Interior: main room has roughly-finished plain chamfered crossbeam and stone rubble
fireplace has soffit-chamfered and scroll stopped oak lintel and includes a large
brick-lined oven on right side. Roof not inspected.
Although Homeleigh is taller and wider than adjoining Forge House the stack is
shared with similar back-to-back fireplaces and therefore is thought to be
contemporary. It is also probably contemporary with adjoining Pennycott and Corner
Cottage (q.v.) together with which it forms a row of similar cottages.
Coleford is a remarkably unspoilt and picturesque hamlet.
