3/43 Stables approximately 8 metres
- north of Holystreet Manor


Stable block. 1913-14. Coursed blocks of roughly dressed granite with granite
ashlar detail; granite stacks with granite ashlar chimney shafts; slate roof.
Plan: stable block with servant accommodation facing Holystreet Manor (q.v.) to the
south-west. The stables with former haylofts over break forward very slightly from
the main block. There is a tack room and a coach house to right (south-east) and
servant accommodation to left. 3 axial stacks, 2 to the accommodation and 1 to the
tack room. A single stable unit projects at right angles to rear. Main block is 2
Exterior: 3:3:1 window front. The central 3-window section is the stables. It is
symmetrical about a large granite Tudor arched doorway which is flanked by 3-light
windows with granite chamfered mullions. Similar first floor half dormer windows
flanking the hayloft loading hatch (now converted to a window). All have gables over
and the central one is larger and contains rows of pigeon holes. The 3-window
section to left is the cottage accommodation and has similar granite mullioned
casements and there is a Tudor arched doorway at the left end. The right end (tack
room) has similar casements and another Tudor arched doorway at the right end. A
leanto coach house at the right end has large double doors in a segmental arch. All
the windows contain rectangular panes of leaded glass and the doors have good plank
doors with heavy wrought iron strap hinges. Roof is hipped each end and, at the
right end a gabled dormer contains a timber casement. On the back another small
single stable projects at right angles. It is gabled and contains a large doorway
flanked by glazed side lights.
Interior: the original interior carpentry and joinery detail is well-preserved and
consistently of the same high quality as the external detail. The stable walls for
instance are lined with glazed white tiles and the stalls are iron framed and lined
with tongue-and-groove planking.
The stables, coach house (q.v. and mill (q.v.) form an attractive group of listed
buildings associated with Holystreet Manor (q.v.), a group set in an exceptionally
picturesque valley.
