OS map shows Post Office on this site. Two cottages in isolated unit. C18. Rendered, thatched roof. Two units, formerly each with central doorway, stepped to ground slope, and with ridge line sloping down; continuous lean-to at back not of special interest, except swept down roof to Olde Poste. Two storeys, 2 + 2 windows, all small 2-light glazing bar casements, but with extra casement to ground floor centre of Cleave Cottage, presumed position of original doorway; upper lights to slight eyebrow dormers. To left in Cleave Cottage a wide plank door in added lean-to porch, and to Olde Poste a C20 door under thatched hood. Left gable is coped, and this wall, to the road, is stepped, possibly denoting an earlier stack; stack to ridge at party wall, and gable stack to right. Interior of Cleave Cottage retains two transverse chamfered beams and exposed ceiling joists, and has solid wood stair; roof structure probably C18. Interior of Olde Poste not accessible; this half formerly included the Post Office, and is still so indicated on the OS map.
