History

Built 1863-4 and contemporary with Capel-y-graig Lodge, as part of the almost continual improvements carried out on the estate by the Assheton-Smith family in the C19.

Exterior

Built of coursed rubble stonework, with a slate roof. Single storey estate cottage in the picturesque style. 'T'-plan, with the main entrance, a part-glazed door facing the garden, under a timber posted verandah that returns along the SW gable end. A similar lean-to occurs at the NE side. Four-paned timber sash windows, with, in the gabled cross wing, a canted bay flanked by implied slit ventilators overlooking the garden. A cluster of 4 octagonal brick chimney flues are set on a panelled square base at the junction of the wing, and a further, but rendered, stack at the SW gable. One 12-pane sash window to the W side. Half-glazed Gothick door on the E side. The N side is partly slate hung.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a well preserved example of a Vaynol Estate workers cottage, dating from the major mid C19 period of improvements.
