Formerly the stables to Betchworth Castle. Built in 1798-9 to a design by
John Soane. Since converted into cottages. The stables were built round
3 sides of a quadrangle. Faced with flints. Slate roof. 1 storey only,

of 1 window bay and 2 storeys flanked by pilasters with a round-headed arch
over the 1st floor window, eaves bracket cornice, hipped roof. Verandah
added to the ground floor with slate roof over [a drawing by Soane shows

one of which in each case has been converted into a door. Eaves cornice over.
The east and west wings of the quadrangle are similar buildings of 6 window
