SW 94 SE,
ST MICHAEL CAERHAYS,
Cow house including surrounding retaining walls about 500 metres south-east of Caerhays Castle
Probably a cow house. C19. Red brick in English bond. Tiled conical roof.
Plan: Circular plan cow house, with doorways on opposite sides.
Exterior: The cow house is a single storey circular building with two doorways with
timber lintels; no windows.
The building is situated in an excavated circular hollow with stone rubble retaining
walls end access on the lower side. This is presumably to conceal it in the
Interior: The roof is supported on a central wooden post. There is a wooden manger.
Although the gardens are mainly of later C19, the park is possibly coeval with
Caerhays Castle itself, since Humphry Repton may have been consulted (D. Stroud).
