Probably built for colliers at a small nearby drift mine and first shown on the 1880 Ordnance Survey, by which time the drift mine was already disused. The cottages were converted to a single dwelling in the late C20.
A restored pair of 2-storey double-fronted cottages of rubble stone with renewed slate roofs on projecting eaves, and 3 stone stacks. The original front, now the back of the house, has stone segmental heads to the lower-storey openings and wooden lintels above. Doorways have renewed boarded doors. Windows are 4-pane sash windows in the lower storey, small casements above, but windows are not aligned. Set back against the L gable end is an added lean-to with a 4-pane sash window to the front, under a brick segmental head, and a similar window to the side wall, in brick jambs.
The rear has 3 segmental-headed doorways, of which the L-hand has a renewed boarded door while the others are blocked. There are 4-pane sash windows at the L end and R of centre.
Listed as a well-restored pair of miner's cottages, a type and small group once common in the South Wales coalfield but now extremely rare.
