Llain Fattw cottages are not shown on the Llangwnnadl Tithe map but their narrow roadside plot is shown, and is described in the apportionment as ‘Cottage and garden’, homestead of Hugh Lewis and owned by The Land Owners of the Parish. The pair of cottages, or at least one of them, must therefore have been in existence by this date c.1840. They are both shown on the 1st ed OS of 1888 as ‘Llain-Fathew’ as the pair of cottages, without rear extensions, and occupying the same long narrow plot extending back from the road as shown on the Tithe. Shown with a small shed to the south in the 3rd edition of 1920, by which time the name has changed to ‘Llain-fattw’. Rear extensions constructed to both, late C20.
Cottage, colour-washed clom construction with corrugated tin sheet roof, rendered gable stack to left. Single storey, two window with central door, offset to right. C20 casement windows, timber door with glazed upper panels. Later flat roof extension added to left side and rear. Single modern window to right hand room No.2 adjoins to right, with higher ridge line.
Not inspected but said to be of 2-units with later extension and gable fireplace with arched recesses to side.
Included for its special architectural interest as a rare pre-1840/mid C19 example of a rural cottage, a building type once common in rural Wales, and important for displaying vernacular building techniques and materials. Group value with No.2.
