The plot of land on which Old Yew Cottage stands was given to the wife of the last lord of the manor in 1835. It was later sold to a Honiton inn keeper. Originally the land was owned by the church. The cottage situated opposite Tuckers Arms, probably dates from the first half of the 18th century. It has no true foundations, the walls standing on large, flat stones, placed end to end, always the sign of an old building. Originally, it consisted of two cottages, forming, with the two cottages by the path to the village hall, an L-shaped block.
