ST 10 NE
6/55 Pilgrim Cottage, Little Thatch,
- and Tapsterwater Cottage
Row of 3 cottages, formerly 4 cottages. Late C17 - early C18, renovated circa 1980.
Colour-washed local stone and flint rubble; stone rubble stacks and chimneyshaft;
thatch roof, red interlocking tile to rear outshots.
Plan: row of 3, formerly 4, cottages facing south backing onto a stream and
therefore built on a slightly curving alignment. Pilgrim Cottage at the left (west)
end has a 3-room lobby entry plan with an axial stack serving back-to-back
fireplaces and unheated left end room. Little Thatch in the centre and Tapswater
Cottage at the right end have 2-room plans each a mirror image of the other either
side of an axial stack serving back-to-back fireplaces. Pilgrim Cottage has been
made by uniting 2 former cottages. All are 2 storeys with rear lean-to outshots
rebuilt as service rooms circa 1970.
Exterior: overall irregular 7-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars and
each end cottage includes a C20 bay window. Most of the first floor windows rise a
short distance into the eaves. All 3 front doorways have C20 part-glazed doors
under contemporary monopitch hoods. The roof is gable-ended to right and half-hipped
to left.
Interiors have similar plain but sturdy carpentry detail including neatly chamfered
crossbeams and oak lintels to stone rubble fireplaces. Roofs not inspected.
If these cottages are contemporary this is a relatively early surviving example of a
row of small cottages. They also form part of a scattered group of attractive
listed buildings on the southern approach to Luppit.
