Pair of cottages. Probably early C18. Rubble and cob, rendered and colour-washed,
axial stacks with brick shafts, wheat straw-thatched roof with gable ends.
Plan: direct entry into hall with axial stack to right in each dwelling, small
service room to left, therefore the right cottage has its stack on the gable end and
the left cottage has its stack in the centre of the building. Outshut at rear with
a leanto roof added C19.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 2:2 windows, casements with glazing bars, those to left C20.
Door opening in added C20 gabled porches, C20 doors.
Interior: Quince Cottage has hall with chamfered and unstopped axial ceiling beam,
fireplace with stone jambs and unchamfered wooden bressumer, altered late C20.
Staircase to first floor rising out of the service room, straight flight.
Roof: completely ceiled in, but believed to be early C18.
