The Barn House. House, formerly a barn. Probably 16C or 17C, remodelled in early 20C. Lower parts of walls are of large-scale granite rubble; upper parts, possibly of cob, are covered with roughcast. Thatched roof, hipped at right-hand end. Large chimney-stack of rendered, 20C brick in centre of ridge. 1 storey. 2 window front with doorway in the middle. Windows and door early 20C, imitating early 19C; windows with leaded panes. In apex of left-hand gable a slit window which appears to have an old, thick wooden frame. No interior features of interest; the roof-timbers are all 20C. The house is an important element in the thatched 'picture village' of Wreyland. It is included for group value.
