10/195 Farmbuildings forming the farmyard - and to the north west of Beara Farmhouse

GV II

Farmbuildings forming a small planned farmyard. Probably 1856 and contemporary with Beara Farmhouse (qv) but incorporating a circa C19 threshing barn. Designed for the Bedford Estate. Stone rubble with slate roofs, the masonry of the barn incorporating large pieces of local quartz. The north range is 2-storey and consists of a threshing barn with an open-fronted shelter shed with loft over adjoining at the right, engine house adjoining at the rear. A loft entrance in the barn under a canopy carried on brackets is linked at first floor level to what was probably a fattening house which projects into the centre of the yard. Stone walls form a foldyard to the right of the fattening house which has splayed corners and a cart entrance to gain access to the rear of the stalls. The south range consists of a calf-house or shippon with 3 entrances and an adjoining carthouse. The west range consists of 1 single-storey building and 1 small building with loft over. The north side of the farmyard is formed by a largely rebuilt stone rubble wall to the foldyard. A modestly-scaled but relatively unspoilt planned farmyard with an attractive barn in conjunction with its farmhouse. The 7th Duke of Bedford was a "devoted improver" (Spring) of the farms on the Tavistock Estate and his policies and practices are described in David Spring, The English Landed Estate in the Nineteenth Century (1963).
