Mount Pleasant Cottage
Farmhouse. Early-mid C17, maybe earlier core, modernised circa 1980 when an
adjoining barn was brought into domestic use. Plastered cob on stone rubble
footings; stone rubble stacks with plastered shafts: thatch roof.
Plan: the house faces south-south-east, say south, and is built down the hillslope.
The C17 house occupies the centre and left (west) end. It has a 3-room lobby
entrance plan. The room downhill at the left end was probably the kitchen and the
centre one a parlour or hall. An axial stack between kitchen and parlour serves
back-to-back fireplaces and the lobby entrance is in front of the stack. The
unheated room next to the parlour was probably the buttery or dairy. A barn
adjoining the right (east) end has been brought into domestic use and a stack was
inserted at the same time. 2 storeys.
Exterior: 5:2-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. The 5-window section
coincides with the C17 house and here the first floor windows have thatch eyebrows
over. The lobby entrance doorway is left of centre and it contains a C20 panelled
door behind a contemporary thatch roofed porch. Roof is hipped to right and half-
hipped to left.
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but it is said
to include a great deal of original carpentry detail including an oak plank-and-
muntin screen between hall/parlour and the dairy/buttery.
