which is flanked by contemporary 16-pane hornless sashes with another at first
floor level over the doorway. Front is flanked by upper remains of panelled
pilasters. Roof is continuous with adjoining Pennycott to left and is hipped to
right. Right side has 2-window front of similar 16-pane sashes although the ground
floor left sash is a horned replacement. Roof is gable-ended to right on this

Coleford is a remarkably unspoilt and picturesque hamlet.
