A pair of Penlanole Estate cottages shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey, although probably originally a single dwelling. A shop had been added by the time the cottages were sold by the estate in 1910. Addition of the shop appears to have been contemporary with alteration of the cottages. Now a single dwelling.
A reflected pair of 1½-storey cottages of rubble stone, slate roof and central brick stack. Entrances are on the outer sides, and have boarded doors, under a wooden lintel the L-hand and stone segmental head to the R-hand. On their inner sides are 4-pane horned sash windows under stone segmental heads. Above them are 2-light half dormers. The L gable end has an added lean-to. The shop, against the R gable end, is of painted brick, slate roof and end brick stack. It has a large 3-light shop window and a boarded door with overlight, all beneath a fascia with hood on consoles. Above is a 2-light half dormer similar to the cottages. Set back against its gable end is a flat-roofed addition.
To the rear the shop is rendered and has an inserted window. The cottages have a single inserted window L of centre below the eaves, and inserted 2-light window lower R.
Listed for its special interest as a pair of former estate cottages retaining definite quality and character.
