PAYHEMBURY ST 00 SE 3/115 Yeomans Cottage - GV II

Cottage. Probably C18. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or cob stack topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.

Plan: 3-room plan cottage facing east. The right (north) end room is set back slightly from the main front and it is a C20 addition. Thus the original cottage has a 2-room plan. The larger room at the left (south) end is heated by a rear lateral stack. The other room is small and unheated, probably it was some kind of service room, either a buttery or dairy originally. 2 storeys.

Exterior: 2:1 - window front of C20 casements. The original part has a symmetrical 2-window arrangement about a central doorway which contains a C20 door behind a contemporary thatch-roofed porch. The main roof is half-hipped each end.

Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but is said to contain original carpentry detail.

Yeomans Cottage forms a group with nearby Appletree Cottage (q.v).
