GV
Detached cottage and garden feature. Probably mid C18, altered
late C18 and 1806 for Richard Colt Hoare. Dressed limestone and
rubble stone, stone slate roof with half-hip to right and stone
stack to left. Single-storey, 1-window. Entrance at right return
in 1806 stone porch with pointed arched openings, planked door with
strap hinges, 3-light leaded casement over. Front facing lake has
canted stone bay with 4-light interlaced tracery window to front
and 2-light to sides, leaded lights, gothic-style stone seat with
ogee-arched supports and quatrefoiled panelled back by John Carter,
added 1806. External stack to left return. Rear lean-to extension
with corrugated iron roof.
Interior has two beams to removed upper floor, exposed 4-bay collar
and tie-beam roof, open fireplace with plain wooden surround at
west end. The 1806 seat has ogee arches very similar to those on
circular monument in the churchyard (q.v.). This may originally
have been a dwelling but has been a summer house since 1895 at
least.
