GV II

Cottage, formerly coach house and stables. Probably C17 rebuilt in C19 and thoroughly modernised and rearranged circa 1960. Plastered stone rubble, maybe some cob; brick stack; thatch roof. The C20 modernisations make an interpretation of the original building somewhat difficult. It faces west and the main block comprises a store at the left (northern) end in the former coach house and a large room at the right end with a lobby between. The large room has an end stack and there is an outshot to rear of the store and a small single storey C20 kitchen on the right end. Main block is 2 storeys. Main block has an irregular 3-window front of probably C20 casements with rectangular panes of leaded glass. The first floor windows have thatch eyebrows over. On the ground floor left end is the large elliptical arch of the coach house now filled with a circa 1960 glazed door and curving bay window, both with glazing bars. To right the main front doorway contains a plank door inlcuding a leaded glass window. The left end is covered by the C20 porch belonging to Littlecott (q.v.) The left end bay is broken forward very slightly from the main front. The roof is gable-ended to right and half-hipped to left. On the right end the C20 kitchen has its own front plank door with a small leaded glass window alongside. The left end wall has a first floor leaded glass casement and the rear roof is carried down over the outshot. Interior is largely the result of the C20 modernisation. However the main room has a C17 soffit-chamfered and scroll-stopped cross beam. The fireplace is probably a C20 rebuild made up of thin bricks which are arranged in patterns. It has a high plain timber lintel and incorporates a late C19 cast iron oven door. The roof structure was rebuilt in C20. Although Littlecott Cottage has been so thoroughly modernised in the C20 the building still preserves much character and groups well with other nearby listed buildings, principally Littlecott (q.v.) and Peeks (q.v.)
