7/147 Vineyard Cottage -


Cottage. Probably C17. Hussey suggests that it may have been used for a wine press in the vineyard and to provide a viewing point for the gardens and park. Rendered, with a flat roof; rear lateral stack with an ashlar freestone shaft. Plan: Sited in the north-west corner of the vineyard, north east of Combe House. A single cell building, square on plan, 2 storeys, with a stair turret that rises above the roof with a doorway on to the roof. Exterior: 2 storeys. 2-bay south front with a half-glazed C19 front door and a probably early C18 2-light transomed small-pane casement to first floor left. The left (west) return has 2 similar ground floor windows and one first floor window. The stair turret is square on plan, weatherboarded above the roof, with a peaked slate roof. Interior: Plain. A most unusual building, group value with Combe House and associated buildings. The vineyard walls and terraces are separately listed. Vineyard cottage is shown on a plan of circa 1787 reproduced in Hussey's articles on Combe in Country Life, June 9, 1955, pp. 1486-1489; June 16, 1955, pp. 1556-1559. This article also reproduces a circa 1820 drawing which shows Vineyard Cottage. The gardens at Combe are grade II on the Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England, Ref: SY 1487 G1312.
