4/94 Cherrytrees and Wayland Cottage


2 adjoining cottages, possibly originally 1 house. Circa early C17 with thorough late
C20 renovations. Colourwashed rendered cob; wooden shingle roof to Wayland cottage
(left hand), C20 tile roof to Cherrytrees (right hand); end stacks, axial stack.
The present plan is single depth, 3 rooms wide with a rear right wing to Wayland
Cottage, forming a T plan. The original plan is not entirely clear but may have been
a 3 room and passage arrangement, the original entrance possibly to the right of the
front door of Wayland Cottage with the hall stack (left end of Cherrytrees) backing
on to the passage. At one time the range was divided into 3 cottages. The internal
partitions of the present cottages have been altered in the late C20.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 + 3 window front. The left hand cottage (Wayland Cottage)
is almost symmetrical with a central front door with a lean-to porch and three 2- and
one 3-light casement, 2 panes per light. 'Cherrytrees' has a projecting stack at the
right end and an approximately central gabled porch. 2 and 3 light casement, 2 panes
per light, ground floor window right C20.
Interior 'Wayland Cottage,' possibly the lower end of the original range, has
chamfered cross beams with step stops and a replaced lintel to the fireplace.
Roofspace not inspected, 'Cherrytrees' has 2 large fireplaces, the right hand
fireplace with rebuilt jambs and a chamfered stopped lintel. 1 cross beam is
chamfered with a scroll stop. 2 jointed cruck trusses survive, the right hand truss
(over the putative inner room) is more finely finished than the left hand truss. The
purlins are either butt or threaded and the collar is mortised into the principals.
The old list description refers to "deeds said to date from 1625".
An interesting vernacular range in the centre of Ideford village.
