2 storeys.
Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 3-window front of circa 1965 casements
without glazing bars. Ground floor left window is converted to a French window.
Doorway has been moved from the centre to the left of the original cottage and
contains a C20 door and contemporary shingle roofed porch. Another similar door and
porch on the side of the extension. Main roof is has a steeply pitched half hip to

Torhill Cottage lies close by the main A30 which at this point is embanked and
therefore the traffic passes close to the thatch roof.
