Small cottage. Probably C17, rear wing may be a later addition. Colourwashed rendered cob and stone rubble; corrugated asbestos roof, gabled at ends (thatched until at least 1960, old list description); right end stack, shared at one time with Hills View (q.v.) adjoining at right. Plan: L plan, possibly once a single cell cottage with a 1 room plan rear right wing which may be later. The room at the front, facing the road, has an entrance to the left, away from the stack and a stair in the rear left corner, partitioned off from the room. A small single-storey lean-to, perhaps a fuel store, adjoins at the left end. Exterior: Facing the main road through the village but set back from it, like Hills View, with a small garden in front. 2 storeys. Asymmerical 1 window front with a C19 or early C20 plank front door to the left with a porch hood, a 6-pane fixed window to the right and a C20 first floor 2-light timber casement. Interior: Front room only inspected: a deeply chamfered axial beam indicates a C17 date, fireplace C20 but probably concealing earlier jambs and lintel. One of a cluster of early houses at the south end of the village.
