5/79 Tidlake Farmhouse including
- farmbuilding adjoining at the

Farmhouse. Probably C18 with early C19 refurbishment. Stone rubble with a slate
roof, gabled at ends; left end stack and back to back fireplaces in an axial stack to
right of centre. The adjoining barn is cob and stone rubble with a slate roof hipped
at the south end.
Plan: South-facing with an interesting late vernacular plan form which appears to be
a development of the 3-room and cross passage arrangement but in a double depth range
(q.v. Higher Brithayes, Bickleigh parish, Mid Devon). 3-rooms wide, with an entrance
into a cross passage to left of centre, principal rooms to the left and right of the
passage, externally this permits a symmetrically facade to the left. The kitchen, to
the right, has a separate entrance. The stair, rising parallel to the rear wall, is
in a kind of rear entrance hall, accessible from the cross passage with a rear door;
rear service rooms flank the stair.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 3:1 bay front, the 3 left hand bays symmetrical with a central
early C19 porch on posts and a panelled front door (top panels glazed). Set of 16-
pane timber sashes, 1980s copies of former windows. The right hand bay has a 2-light
ground floor casement and a separate entrance reached through the end of a cob and
stone barn which adjoins the house at right angles to the kitchen. The west face
(inner return) of the barn has a door at the left with a window to the right of the
door. To the right the barn has a second door with symmetricaly-positioned windows,
2 to the ground floor, 2 to the loft, flanking it. 1 window on the right return of
the house is probably C18, a casement with square leaded panes, and there is a
similar window on the rear elevation. The other rear windows are small-pane timber
casements and the rear door (which leads into the stair hall) is panelled.
Interior: Plain, with no exposed carpentry. The stair is either late C18 or early
C19 with an open string, turned newel and stick balusters.
An attractive C18 farmhouse.
