4/134 Rose Cottage
House, former farmhouse. C17, possibly earlier in parts, renovated circa 1970.
Plastered stone rubble, maybe some cob; stone rubble stack with a granite ashlar
chimney shaft; thatch roof, replaced with corrugated iron over the byre.
Plan: 3-room plan building facing south-east and built across the hillslope. The 2
-room section to right is the main house. The right end room has a gable-end stack.
The centre room is unheated and, in the C20, has been partitioned with a cross
passage, and there is a rear corridor containing the C20 stairs. The left end room
was a byre or stable. It is now used as a workshop with service rooms inserted in
the C20. 2 storeys with secondary outshot in front of the byre/stables.
Exterior: the main house has a regular 2-window front of C20 casements; one leaded
and the first floor half dormers PVC and have thatch gables over. Main door to left
is C20 behind a contemporary thatch-roofed porch on rustic posts. C20 glazed door
to right. Woodshed outshot in front of byre/stable. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: both rooms of the house have roughly-chamfered axial beams. Fireplace in
right room blocked by C20 grate but some of the original oak lintel shows. The
oldest feature is the side-pegged jointed cruck roof truss over the heated room.
The roofspace is inaccessible and therefore dating is not possible but it is
probably C16. The left room shows the bases of straight principals, probably a late
C17 A-frame truss with pegged lap-jointed collar like that exposed in the
