Pair of C19 croglofft cottages, built probably as part of the encroachment onto poor common land. Probably built at about time of 1844 Tithe Map, as building shown below Bwlch fields may be these houses.
Pair of cottages, whitewashed rubble stone with slate roof and three stone stacks with dripstones and pyramid cappings, square stacks to centre and left, narrower to stack right. Single storey, part-lofted within. Both double-fronted and offset to right, with ledged doors. Left cottage has 4-pane sash each side, right cottage has 9-pane window left and C20 metal window right. Small loft sky-lights in roof.
Included as the best local example of paired croglofft cottages, and as a part of the group of cottages that form a good example of a commons-encroachment settlement at Mynydd Anelog.
