Not shown on the 1838 Tithe Map, Cefn Braich was probably built c1850. In 1889 it was a public house, The Coach and Horses.
2-storey, 3-bay front. Rendered rubblestone, roughcast to front with cement-rendered window surrounds; grouted graded slate roof. Front has 4-paned sashes with slate cills on each floor flanking central C20 boarded door with glazed top; integral end stacks with slate drips. Full-length asbestos-sheet roofed lean-to on rear.
Interior not accessible at time of Survey.
Included as a largely unaltered house built c1850 in the local vernacular tradition but displaying a number of polite features. The house is one of the larger buildings in Rhiwlas, pre-dating its later C19 expansion as a slate-quarrying village, by which time it was a public house.
