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
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.
