Probably mid C19, the location of this cottage suggests its origins as a labourers cottage, perhaps tied to the nearby farm. The building is small, but substantially built and with simple but good detail.


Small single-storey cottage, limewashed rubble with bedded and grouted slate roof with gable-end stacks, that to right-hand gable larger. Near-centre doorway with boarded door, flanked by 4-pane sash windows with voussoir heads. Tiny roof lights within roof, and small attic window in gable end. Small derelict extension to left end.


Originally 2 room plan, division now removed. Small late C19 stair against rear wall.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as an exceptionally well-preserved single storey cottage, a characteristic building type in Pembrokeshire; this example retains good original character, and exhibits regionally characteristic features such as the grouted roof.
