CUBERT SW 75 NE 2/9 Smuggler's Den Inn (formerly listed as Trebellan Farmhouse) 30.5.67 II

Farmhouse, now inn. Circa early C17, with additions of circa mid - late C17. Alterations of C19 and alterations and additions of C20. Stone rubble and cob; rendered and painted. Thatched roof with gable ends. Gable end stacks to the two front wings with rubble shafts with slate weathering; the two rear lateral stacks are also at gable ends, with similar shafts. Plan: The house appears to have been of 3-room plan, with entrance directly into the central room, which appears never to have been heated. The room to right and the room to left are both heated from rear lateral stacks. The room to left would have been the kitchen. Probably circa mid - late C17, a one-room plan addition was made to front right and left, each heated from a front gable end stack, and forming a nearly symmetrical U-plan. There are large C20 additions at the left side and along the rear. Exterior: 2 storeys, nearly symmetrical front, with 2 bays to centre and 2-storey wing projecting to right and left. The centre has C20 glazed door and C20 French window at ground floor, two C20 2-light 6-pane casements at first floor. The wing to left has 2-light 4-pane casement with timber lintel at ground floor and two similar 2-light casements at first floor; front gable end blind. The wing to right has two C20 glazed doors at ground floor and C20 2-light 6-pane casement at first foor; front gable end has 2-light 6-pane casement at first floor to left. At the right side, the wing has C20 glazed door at first floor level to right. The gable end of the main range has C20 2-light 4-pane casement at first floor. The left side has C20 single storey addition along the whole side at ground floor level; first floor has three C20 2-light casements; the gable end to left has glazed door at ground floor and C19 16- pane sash at first floor. There is a small single storey C19 wing with scantle slate roof with ridge tiles and 4-pane sash. Attached to rear right is a large single storey C20 addition, rendered, with asbestos slate roof; this conceals the rest of the rear of the house. Interior: The interior has been much altered; not fully accessible at time of survey (October 1987). At ground floor, the room to left in the main range and the room in the front wing has continuous chamfered ceiling beams. The room to left in the main range has a rear fireplace with large wooden lintel, chamfered with run-out stops; cloam oven to right and left, and pot jack remaining. At the left end, there is a window concealed by the external additions; this is a horizontal sliding sash of 6- panes each light, of C19, with chamfered timber lintel. The wooden lintel remains from the fireplace at the front gable end to left. The central room in the main range has no evidence of a fireplace or a passage; chamfered ceiling beams. The room to right in the main range also has chamfered beams, rear fireplace with wooden lintel and oven, probably inserted. The room in the front right wing is ceiled. This house has an unusual plan; further internal inspection may provide more evidence for the development of the house, and there may be other features of the C17 at first floor level, and early roof trusses.
