BERRINGTON C.P. - SJ 50 NW 3/28 Lower Betton Farmhouse - and flanking stable blocks - II Shown on O.S. map as Betton Abbots.

Farmhouse and stables. Red brick with some grey sandstone ashlar dressings; 2-span plain tile roof. Central 3-bay house with flanking set-back 2-bay pavilions. 3-storey house and one-storey and attic pavilions. 2:1:3:1:2 bay rhythm. House: dentil brick eaves cornice, parapeted gable ends, and pairs of external brick end stacks. 3 bays; segmental-headed 3-light mid- to late C19 wooden casements, those on ground and first floors with transoms; central door with 6 flush panels, 3-part rectangular overlight, moulded architrave and flat hood with cut brackets and probably later wrought iron brackets. Rear of 3 bays with ground floor lean-to and central segmental-headed boarded door. Pavilions: each has dentil brick eaves cornice to rear, parapeted gable ends, and returned stone coped pedimented gable end to front. 2 bays: central oculus to attic with glazing bars and stone architrave, ground floor depressed-arched blind arcading with stone impost blocks; south pavilion has integral brick end stack and one-storey link block to house with 3-light segmental- headed casement and north pavilion has one-storey link block to house with later lean-to addition to east; pavilions have 2-leaf stable doors at rear and stone tallet steps at gable ends up to segmental- headed boarded loft doors. Interior of house not inspected but likely to contain late C18 fittings of interest. This is a surprisingly ambitious formal composition for an otherwise conventional C18 farm- house.
