5/33 Winterstoke Cottage
Cottage. Circa late C18/early C19 with C20 renovations. Whitewashed and rendered
except for the left end wall which is volcanic trap rubble; thatched roof, with a
plain ridge gabled at left end, adjoining Church Green Cottage (q.v.) at right end ;
axial stack with brick shaft.
Plan: The present plan is single depth, 2 rooms wide with a larger heated room to the
left, an entrance to right of centre into a stair hall and a smaller, unheated room
to the right. Single storey slate-roofed lean-to adjoining at rear left is probably
a later addition. It is not clear whether this corresponds to the original plan.
There was a second doorway on the front at the right which has been replaced with a
window. The rear of the house backs on to the churchyard where the ground is level
with the thatch eaves.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front with a C20 front door to right of centre
under a gabled porch canopy. 2 ground floor windows to the left of the door have
segmental brick arches and are glazed with 2-light casements, 3 panes per light;
similar window to right of door with a square head in the position of a former
doorway. 2 similar first floor windows.
The left return has a first floor blocked window with a brick arch.
Interior not inspected but thoroughly modernised.
One of an attractive group of thatched cottages around the churchyard.
