Midstream Cottage and Briony in Bratton Clovelly was Listed on 7th September 1987. A pair of cottages built in the 18th century and extended in the 19th century of rendered stone rubble and cob with a gable ended asbestos slate roof. Three brick stacks, one at each gable end and one axial stack which is rendered. The cottages are probably co-eval but not identical: Midstream Cottage was originally one room whereas Briony has two rooms, a parlour to the left and a kitchen-living room to the right the other side of the passage. In the 19th century a stable was added at its right-hand end which was converted to further accommodation in the 20th century. Late 19th/early 20th century outshuts added at rear. Two storeys with asymmetrical 5-window front, Mainstream Cottage to the left has a 2-window front. 1-window 19th century extension at the right-hand end of Briony. Mainstream Cottage has a 19th cneutyr 3-light casement to the left and single light casement to the right on the first floor. Three-light early 20th century casement to the left on ground floor with a 19th century gabled porch to its right which has a 20th century hardboard door. Briony has early 20th century 3-light casements on the ground floor and later 20th century 2-light casements on the first floor to left and right with a 19th century 2-light casement at the centre. The porch at the centre is identical to the other with a 19th century panelled and glazed door behind. At the left-hand end of the two cottages is a single storey 18th century cob outbuilding belonging to the adjacent inn and probably originally its stable; it is L-shaped, running back at right angles to the two cottages. Interior of Briony has a 18th century chimneypiece with moulded surround to the left-hand room. Its roof timbers are puzzling because although constructed of hardwood suggesting quite an early date they are bolted together. Other details: LBS Number 94286.
