Cobwebs Cottage. 17th or 18th century, altered and modernised circa 1980. Plastered granite stone rubble; disused granite stack; thatch roof, slate to rear extension.
Plan: 3-room plan cottage facing south-east and set back from the square. The right (north-eastern) room has an end stack. Two-storey service extension to rear. Entrance now at left end behind porch. The original layout has been much-altered and without internal inspection it is not possible to ascertain the original layout. However it seems possible that the right two rooms were the original cottage or maybe it was formerly two cottages. Two storeys.
Exterior: irregular 3-window front of 19th and 20th century replacement casements with glazing bars. The central ground floor window is thought to be blocking a former doorway. At the left end is the porch with a circa 1980 gothic-style door with arched head in the inner side. Its monopitch roof is a continuation of the main roof. Main roof is gable-ended to right and half-hipped to left. Rear extension is gable-ended.
Interior not available for inspection at time of survey.
