Higher Parford Cottage

GV II

Cottage, former farmhouse. Probably C17, renovated in late C19. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stacks with plastered brick tops; thatch roof. Plan: 2-room plan cottage facing north-west and built down a hillslope. There is a central entrance hall and staircase between the 2 rooms. The right room has an axial stack backing onto the stair. This was probably the kitchen originally. The uphill left room has a projecting gable-end stack. 2 storeys. Exterior: regular 2-window front of C19 casements with glazing bars, the first floor windows rising into the thatch. The front doorway is a little left of centre and contains a part-glazed C20 door. To right of it is a small fixed pane window. Roof is gable-ended. Interior: is largely the result of the late C19 modernisation and therefore most of the carpentry detail is hidden by later plaster and both fireplaces are blocked. The left room however has a soffit-chamfered axial beam, forking into the chimneybreast The roof is inaccessible although the base of one A-frame truss shows: its scantling is large enough to suggest that the roof structure is C17.
