2/32 White Hart Cottage
House, formerly 2 cottages. C17 and C18, modernised circa 1970. Plastered cob on
rubble footings; cob and rubble stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
North-facing main block comprises central through passage with rooms served by end
stacks either side. Original C17 cottage occupies left (east) room. Former stables
at right angles to rear now converted to domestic use. C18 room to right projects a
little to rear and has been divided into 2 rooms. 2 storeys. Irregular 3-window
front of circa 1970 casements with glazing bars and contemporary door to passage.
Eaves and ridge of roof drop from left room to passage. It is gable-ended to left
and continuous with roof of adjoining Part Reeves (q.v.) to right.
Interior was extensively modernised circa 1970 although most windows and doorways
appear to have stayed in their original positions. Full height cob crosswalls on
either side of passageway. In older left room crossbeam is replaced and cob
fireplace with plain oak lintel now lined with stone. At first floor a window
embrasure discovered during renovation shows that passage secondary. Right room has
massive chimney breast and fireplace is blocked. Roof not inspected.
According to the owner the place is mentioned in a will of 1632. There is a
tradition that the left room was an ostler's cottage and there was a carriageway
through present passage to rear stables-. The right room was a bakery. The whole
complex served the White Hart Hotel, then an inn.
