TIVERTON

SS91SE WARNICOMBE LANE, Tidcombe
848-1/7/99 Tidcombe Farmhouse

II

Farmhouse. Probably C16. Rendered stone rubble; steep asbestos
slate roof; 2 brick lateral stacks at rear, brick end stack on
left.
PLAN: overall T-shaped plan including early C19 rear stair
wing plus later service wing rebuilt late C20. Original house
is part of the 5-room range at the front.
The original probable hall is the second room from the left,
the left-hand room also part of the original house.
Right of the hall is a cross passage leading to stair hall and
right of the passage are 2 more rooms, the room on the right
being a later addition, originally unheated.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. Overall 6-window range with 2 doorways,
each doorway central to a 3-window range. Late C20 3-light
casements in old openings.
INTERIOR: retains 6 of the principal rafters and most of the
purlins of the original jointed-cruck roof structure with no
sign of smoke-blackening. The roof structure at the right-hand
end of the house is much later, probably C18 with lapped
collars. The best feature of the house is a fine quality oak
ceiling structure with triple-ovolo moulded crossbeam and
similar moulded perimeter beams as cornices and with
bead-moulded joists between. There are 2 original fireplaces
but these are partly blocked.
Later features of interest include: 2 x C18 2-panel doors
flanking the entrance hall, some similar doors to cupboard in
2nd chamber from right; several C18 planked doors at the
left-hand end of the house, one with studded nails behind the
strap hinges; a large fireplace in the left-hand room; some
early C19 6-panel doors with inner beads to the panels, an
L-plan bench built in by the window of the left-hand room and
an open-well staircase with stick balusters. Most of the rooms
have old plaster ceilings and old wall surfaces.
Like many early Devon farmhouses, Little Tidcombe Farmhouse
has a modest external appearance but internally retains
evidence of an important earlier status as is proven by the
very high quality of its hall ceiling.
