5/95 Primrose Cottage



Small house, formerly 2 cottages. Late C17 - early C18, modernised circa 1970. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof, slate to rear outshot. Plan: originally a pair of 1-room plan cottages facing east and backing onto the churchyard. The right room has a projecting end stack and the left room has a rear lateral stack. The 2 cottages have now been united and a former woodstore to rear of the left room has been brought into domestic use. 2 storeys. Exterior: not quite symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. Pair of central doorways have probably C19 solid frames but contain C20 doors. Roof is hipped to left and gable-ended to right. Interior: the right room has a soffit-chamfered and roll-stopped crossbeam and a stone rubble fireplace with a slight soffit-chamfer to the oak lintel. The left room has a slight soffit-chamfer to the crossbeam and this fireplace has a soffit- chamfered oak lintel with runout stops. Nothing of the roof structure shows. Each cottage has a single bay roof either side of the timber-framed central crosswall. Primrose Cottage forms part of a group of attractive listed buildings in the village on the east side of the churchyard.
