Originally a tied cottage to Cresswell Cottage (operating then as a farm but later the public house), and shown on the 1846 Tithe Map (though not on an earlier map of 1755). Census returns show that between 1841 and 1851 its occupant was Evan Jones, quarryman and family. The tenancy descended through the family to David Thomas, described in 1861 as a sailor, and as a carpenter between 1871 and 1901. The tenancy then passed to Herbert Thomas and remains in the same family. A second house was added c1850, but it was not lived in from c1881 and is now ruinous.


Low 2 storeyed cottage of 2 unit plan. Roughcast over rubble, with smooth rendered window surrounds and inscribed head to doorway. Slate roof with gable end stacks, that to right projecting. Near-central doorway with boarded door flanked by 4-pane sash windows. 3 tiny sashes immediately below eaves. Lean-to against left-hand gable end said to house bread oven. At the right hand end are the remains of the second cottage: roughly squared limestone rubble, single storeyed, with central door and flanking windows.
