Cottage next to, and N of, Abbey House (qv). Probably late C17 in origin, but with later alterations.

Sited fronting directly onto Bull Hill and at the entrance of Pilton Abbey (qv). Single-depth plan with a single-storey outshut at the right end. Concave front wall suggests that left end may have been built at different date from remainder. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window range. Recessed C20 front door to left of centre. 3 ground- and 4 first-floor 6 over one-pane sash windows. Door on front into right-hand outshut has 6 flush panels. INTERIOR: not inspected but may retain features of interest.

HISTORICAL NOTE: Reed suggests that this may have been the site bought by David Green, fuller, of Pilton, from Lord Howard of Effingham in 1611 for 100. (Reed MA: Pilton, its Past and Present: Barnstaple: 1985-: 160).
