2/83 Budleigh Cottage
House. Late C16/early C17 origins with later alterations. A circa early C18 wing
may have been a separate 1 room plan cottage, C20 repair. Whitewashed, plastered cob
and stone rubble; thatched roof, gabled at ends; right end stack and front lateral
stack to main range end stack to north wing.
Plan: T plan. A single depth south-facing main range, 2 rooms wide with a third,
narrow room at the left (west) end. A one-room plan north wing at right angles may
have been a separate single cell cottage as there is no sign of internal access the
main range. A single-storey south wing a right angles probably served as the village
shop. The main range has a rear outshut, formerly a dairy, which has been turned
into a kitchen. The plan of the main range is puzzling; at the left (west) end there
is only a thin partition wall between Budleigh Cottage and the adjoining house Castle
Comer, suggesting a single build originally. The corner fireplace served by the
lateral stack is circa 1700 but may be an adapation of an earlier fireplace.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window garden front with a C20 door and doorway
to the left. 2- and 3-light C19 or C20 timber casement windows, 3 to the first
floor, 2 to the ground floor. The single-storey wing has a door on the inner return
and a later C20 4-light timber window in the end wall. The right return, which is
the street elevation, is attractively irregular with a probably early C20 24-pane
fixed shop window, 2 3-light timber casements (probably C20) to the gable end of the
main range and a door and 2 C19 small-pane timber casements to the north wing.
Interior: The right hand (east) room of the main range has a rough crossbeam and an
open fireplace with a bread oven and a replaced lintel. The centre room has an angle
fireplace of hand made bricks and a plain, possibly late C17/early C18 plank and
muntin partition with the left hand room. The stair rises in a passage to the rear
of the centre room. The north (rear) wing has an open fireplace with a chamfered
Roof: 2 side-pegged jointed cruck trusses survive over the right hand (east) end of
the house, they are not smoke-blackened.
An attractive, irregular traditional house in the centre of Kerswell village.
