1/284 Rose Cottage and Trumps Cottage
2 cottages, once part of a large house. C16 and C17, much-altered when subdivided
in the late C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stacks with
plastered brick top ; slate roof, formerly thatch.
Plan and development: pair of 1-room plan cottages facing south. Rose Cottage to
left (west) has a left end front corner stack and Trumps Cottage to right has a
right end stack backing onto the adjoining Ashleigh Cottage (q.v). In fact these
cottages have been made by the subdivision of a C16 3-room-and-through-passage plan
house. Rose Cottage occupies the inner room and Trumps Cottage occupies the hall.
Both cottages are 2 storeys with secondary service outshots to rear.
Exterior: overall 3-window front, C20 horned 4-pane sashes at the left end, the
rest are late C19 - early C20 casements with glazing bars. Central doorway sharing
the same gabled late C19 porch containing a pair of round-headed outer arched, both
containing C20 doors. Roof runs across the cottages between the adjoining houses.
Interior: only Trumps Cottage was available for inspection at the time of this
survey. Here the ground floor party wall is shown to be a C16 oak plank-and-muntin
screen once at the upper end of the hall. Its muntins are chamfered with worn,
probably step stops high enough to accommodate a bench below. The fireplace is C17,
rubble built with soffit-chamfered and run-out stopped oak lintel and containing a
C19 cloam oven. Axial beam is soffit-chamfered but the stops have worn off. Roof
not accessible but the bases of straight principals show suggesting C17 or C18 A-
