SY 19 NW
7/68 Home Farm and Dairy Farm Cottage

2 cottages made out of a former farmhouse and adjoining barn. Early-mid C16
origins, much altered in the C19 and circa 1950, Home Farm renovated in 1987.
Plastered cob on stone rubble footings, some stone rubble and brick patching; stone
rubble and brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof.
Plan and development: 2 adjoining cottages facing south-east. They occupy a long
block built down a hillslope. Uphill at left (south-west) end is Home Farm. It has
a 2-room plan and each room is heated by an axial stack, the right one shared with
the room beyond in Dairy Farm Cottage. Dairy Farm Cottage has a 3-room plan and the
right end room has a rear corner stack. The present layout is largely C20, the
product of the subdivision and conversion of a farmhouse and barn. The former
farmhouse occupied the 2 rooms of Home Farm and the adjoining room of Dairy Farm
Cottage. The rest of Dairy Farm Cottage is a converted barn. There is very little
evidence showing of the earlier development of the farmhouse except that it was
originally some form of open hall house heated by an open hearth fire. Both
cottages are 2 storeys with C20 service outshots to rear.
Exterior: overall irregular 6-window front. All except one of the left 3-window
section (the former farmhouse) are C19 casements containing rectangular panes of
leaded glass. The first floor window belonging to Home Farm is a half dormer with
the thatch swept over in a semi-circular arch. The rest of the windows are C20
casements with glazing bars. Both cottage front doorways are C20 with contemorary
thatch-roofed gabled porches. The roof is continuous over both cottages and is
half-hipped both ends.
Interior: has plain carpentry detail where exposed. A great deal is C20 but some is
earlier. The only C16 feature is a single side-pegged jointed cruck roof truss in
Home Farm. It is smoke-blackened from the original open hearth fire.
Feniton is an attractive little village containing a good group of listed buildings.
