Cottage and former outbuildings. Probably late C18-early C19, modernised circa 1980. Apparently plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble or brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof. The original house faces south-west and backs onto the lane. It has a 2-room plan with central staircase and end stacks. Former outbuildings on the same axis and attached to the right (south-eastern) have now been brought into the house forming a 2-room service block with axial stack and there is a narrow store attached to the end. 2 storeys. Main block has symmetrical 3-window front of late C19 casements with glazing bars; outer 3 lights and central first floor 2 lights. Central door is original 6-panel door in which the top panels now contain tiny panes of Victorian leaded glass. The porch is probably mid or late C19; it is flat-roofed and supported on slender turned timber posts and sides are trellised. The roof is steeply-pitched and hipped both ends. The lower service block to right is set back a little from the main front. It contains 2 C19 ground floor casements and 2 circa 1985 first floor half dormers with flat roofs. Door at left end is C20. The roof continues over the narrow store at the end and is gable-ended. Rear of main block has only a tiny central stair window at first floor level flanked by recessed rectangular panels. The service block has a narrow half dormer and C19 plank door. Interior: what little carpentry exposed is plain and roughly finished. Some C19 joinery detail. Roof not inspected. Marked as Kennels on OS map.
