Cottage, now a museum. Late C16, extended in C17. Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched. 2 bays facing NW, with C17/C18 axial stack in right bay. C17 extension of one bay to right, slightly narrower in span than the original building. One storey. 2 C20 casements with rectangular leading. Plain boarded door. The interior has jowled posts in both parts, heavy studding, diamond mortices for unglazed windows, evidence of an original partition, now removed, between the 2 bays of the late C16 cottage. The original roof is hipped at the left end, although this does not appear externally, and the rafters are smoke- blackened in both original bays.
