4/105 Yonder Thatch -


House, former farmhouse. Mid-late C17, possibly earlier core. Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks, one rebuilt with brick, both with plastered brick tops; thatch roof. Plan: 3-room plan cottage facing south, the rear is terraced into the slope. The main rooms are at each end and each has an end stack. The left (western) room was the kitchen but the chimney has been partly rebuilt. The right room was the parlour. Central entrance lobby and small unheated room behind. It was probably a dairy. The stairs rise alongside the dairy. Easton Cottage (q.v.) adjoins on the right side and it is possible that the 2 cottages originally made a single farmhouse. However, the 2 have been self-contained dwellings since the C17. 2 storeys. Exterior: symmetrical frontage arranged around a central doorway which contains a C20 part-glazed and panelled door. The 2 ground floor and 4 first floor windows are all similar late C19-early C20 casements with glazing bars. Roof butts that of adjoining Easton Cottage (q.v.) to right and is hipped to left. Interior: both main rooms have a soffit-chamfered beams, the kitchen crossbeam is unstopped, the parlour axial beam has straight cut stops to the front. The kitchen fireplace was rebuilt in the late C19-early C20 but the parlour fireplace is original; built of granite with a soffit-chamfered and step-stopped oak lintel. The roof is not accessible but the feet of straight principals show and suggest that the original A-frame truss roof survives.
