GV II

Farmhouse, now house. Probably C16 or early C17 but much
altered and rebuilt, mostly in late C18 or earlier C19;
recently restored. Coursed sandstone rubble with large quoins,
stone slate roof with some blue slate on the north slope of
the main range. Modified L-plan, with the earliest range on a
north-south axis now forming a wing to the east half of the
present main range, which has an east-west axis and includes
some of the earlier fabric but was mostly re-built or enlarged
in the later C18 or early C19; plus a short extension at the
east end of this, which appears to incorporate masonry of the
earlier build.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. There is no architectural "front": the
approach is from the north, where the main range has a
square-headed doorway next to the junction with the wing, a
1-light window to the right of this, a stone-slate drip-band
over both these, a 2-light casement above, and a chimney at
the west gable. The west side of the wing has one restored
sash window on each floor, and a blocked doorway to the right
of that at ground floor, with a large monolith lintel; its
north gable has a square fixed window in the blocked opening
of another doorway to the right at ground floor, a stone slate
drip-course and a wide stepped gable chimney. The east wall
has old small masonry at ground floor of the south end of the
present main range, containing a mullioned window now of 2
round-headed lights with the remains of 3rd light to the left,
an inserted or restored 6-pane sash above this, and one square
window on each floor to the right: a 6-pane sash at ground
floor (in the blocked opening of another doorway) and above
this a recently exposed and restored 6-light oak
mullion-and-transom window with chamfered mullions and some
surviving wooden saddle-bars. The lean-to extension, of 2 low
storeys, has a doorway at ground floor and a square 16-pane
fixed window above with one opening pane. The south facade,
which is the "back" of the main range, has a narrow inserted
doorway offset to the right (up a short flight of steps), a
rectangular 12-pane stair-window offset left, and two restored
6-pane sashes on each floor.
INTERIOR: present kitchen in south end of earlier range has
high ceiling with large lateral beam slotted as if for a
former partition, joists on the south side with small moulded
decoration and those on the north side chamfered; and large
C18 fireplace with corbelled lintel (recently raised). Room at
north end of this range has part of a small brick bread-oven
in the north gable wall, and a large late C18 built-in
cupboard to the right. Late C18 dog-legged staircase with open
string, square newels and 2 turned balusters per tread; small
cellar under stairs.
Forms group with Hebblethwaite Hall Cottage and attached barn
to north (qv).
