7/46 Deems Cottage -


Farmhouse. Probably C16 and C17, modernised circa 1970. Colour-washed local stone rubble; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof. Plan and development: 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing north-east and built down the hillslope. Uphill at the right (north-west) end is the unheated former inner room. The hall has an axial stack backing onto the passage and the service end room has a gable-end stack. Since no internal inspection was available at the time of this survey it is not possible to determine the historic development of the house. Nevertheless it seems likely that it began as some form of open hall house. Nor is it possible from the exterior to establish details of the plan. For instance, in the C17 was the hall the kitchen and the lower end room the parlour or vice versa? House is 2 storeys with a secondary woodshed on the right (north- western) end. Exterior: irregular 3-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars and a fourth ground floor window is a C20 oculus at the right end. The first floor windows have low thatch eyebrows over. The passage front doorway is left of centre and contains a C19 plank door behind a C20 thatch-roofed porch on rustic posts. Roof is gable-ended to left and half-hipped to right. Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey. However it is said to include a good deal of good oak carpentry, presumably C16 or C17 in date. A full internal inspection should be undertaken before any alterations lest C16 or C17 work be demolished or damaged.
