GV II

Pair of houses, with garden boundary walls. Possibly C17,
largely rebuilt early C19. Rendered, slate roofs partly
replaced in asbestos slate. Symmetrical 2-room cottages with
centre hall and stair, and rear service wing.
2 storeys; 3+3-window range. Old Garden Cottage has 2-light
8-pane casements with thin mullions above one 10-pane casement
and a French door with margin-panes. Centred in a trellised
gabled porch is a wide door with upper part glazed, including
margin-panes. The plain gable to the road has a large external
stack, the upper part in brick. At the rear is a wing with
very wide gable, with plain plate-glass sashes. The rear slope
and the wing have asphalted slates.
West Cottage, to the right, generally not accessible, but is
similar in format to Old Garden Cottage, with 2-light
casements to the first floor. It has asbestos-cement slate
roofing. At the rear is a wide gabled extension, also a large
eaves stack, slate hung, but with some early brickwork,
probably C18, in the upper part.
INTERIOR: Old Garden Cottage only inspected. Ground floor
right has later inserted French doors with full-height
shutters, and a C19 fire surround with pilasters and paterae,
and the original cast-iron grate; the left-hand room has been
subdivided to form a passageway to the rear. It has a corner
'shell' cupboard. The rear kitchen is very low ceiled, less
than 2m high, and has C19 two-plank doors. The 2 front
bedrooms have coved ceilings, and there are 2-panel doors on
L-hinges. A passage behind these rooms leads to a doorway, now
closed off, into the adjoining property.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: on the side adjacent to Lydiate Lane is a
high rubble boundary wall with on-edge coping stones, reaching
the eaves of the cottage, and following the slope of the lane
down to the junction with Queen Street at the bottom, where it
terminates in an unclosed end without quoins. Near the front
of the cottage is a plank door. Across the back of both
properties is a further wall enclosing a paved yard, which is
at a lower level than the adjoining access way. It is in
thin-bedded rubble to a rough weathered coping, and with iron
access gates to the lane.
These cottages, although remodelled in the C19, are claimed to
date from 1680; the small scale and low ceiling heights,
especially to the rear, makes this possible, as does the site
near the centre of the old settlement in Lynton. The houses
are concealed from the roads by the high wall and surrounding
properties, and on early Ordnance maps are shown as sharing
one common garden area, now sub-divided. The first-floor
linking door would corroborate a single ownership at some
stage.
