TINTAGEL TREWARMETT SX 08 NE 4/221 Trewarmett Farmhouse II Farmhouse. Circa early C17, possibly with earlier origins. Rendered and painted slate stone rubble. Rag slate roof partly renewed in C20. Lower range on left with gable end to front left. Higher range on right with gable end on lower left hand side and gable end to front wing on right. Possibly inserted stone rubble stack, renewed in circa mid C20 on lower side of passage; rendered stone rubble axial hall stack on higher side of passage and rendered projecting stone rubble stack to front wing on right. Plan altered and the original arrangement is not clear. It is uncertain whether the circa C16 arch at the entrance to the through passage is original or has been reused from an earlier house. The roof structure has been largely replaced in the C18, C19 and C20 and the joinery is largely mid C17 and later. Possibly originally a 2 or 3 room and through passage house with thick walls continuing up to apex on higher and lower side of passage and on higher side of hall, the right hand room. The lower end appears to have been partly rebuilt with what appears to be a straight joint on the lower side of the passage on the front and a more evident straight joint on the higher side of the passage on the rear. The entrance to the through passage has a circa early C16 arch and the passage has been widened to form a small room, heated by a possibly inserted stack on the lower side (compare plan type with Lower Beeny Farmhouse, St Juliot). The wall on the lower side of the passage has been partly rebuilt in circa mid C20 although the fireplace is probably C19 with a bulge for a cloam oven visible on the lower side. The hall to the right is heated by an axial stack which backs on to the passage with the thick cross wall continuing to the rear of the fireplace, possibly indicating the position of a blocked stair. It is uncertain whether the original house had an inner room, the thick wall on the higher side of the hall may have been an external wall. Alternatively this large inner room which continues in a front wing heated by an end stack may have originally been much smaller and extended or rebuilt as a parlour wing in circa mid C17. It is however not unusual in this part of Cornwall to find a inner room of almost twice the size of the hall in a circa early C17 house. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front with lower range on left. Plank door to loft on left. Main range with C20 window in earlier sash opening, circa C16 segmental greenstone arch with chamfer and circa C19 door. 2-light casements to right. First floor with two 2-light casements in half dormers with raking roofs. To right, gable end of parlour wing with projecting stack. Interior : Circa C19 fireplace inserted to heat remodelled passage with circa late C19 stair adjoining fireplace on rear. Hall heated by axial stack which backs onto passage with C20 fireplace. This cross wall is very thick and probably contains a large hall fireplace. The ceiling beams in the hall are roughly chamfered and the heavy cross beam has been reused. The inner room has a C20 fireplace and some circa C17 ceiling beams, the other beams circa C20. Roof structure. Circa C18 roof structure above inner room partly renewed in C19 with 2 trusses, halved, lap-jointed and pegged at apices, the collars halved, lap-jointed and pegged onto the face of the principals. 2 trusses above hall of circa early and late C19, 1 truss bolted, the other lap-jointed and pegged at apex with collar lap- jointed and pegged onto face of principals.
