This ancient house is said to date to around 1450 and was formerly a pair of cottages, having now been converted into a single dwelling which has undergone extensive alterations. The sandstone; all now whitewashed and rendered; thatched roof with whitewashed stacks.
The house stands towards the south end of the village slightly offset above the street. The large thatched roof building was once an old ale house, with a cellar hewn out of sand stone rock on which the building still stands. It was originally known as the Fishermans Arms and later Noahs Ark and more perhaps intriguingly the Robbers Den. Once again this shows more maritime relations, and eprhaps gives us an insite into what the old building may have been used for quietly.
EXTERIOR: single storey, 5 bays, built on a sloping outcrop of rock with ten steps up to the front entrance. Eight panels of large square framing are exposed to right of front door. Front door is 4-panelled with glazed upper panels. Windows are horizontal sliding sashes with glazing bars, two to left of front door, four to right of door, set in alternate panels above mid-rail.
INTERIOR: timber-frame incorporates cruck trusses in partition walls of the bedroom and present bathroom, and on the line of the firebeam to the living room. Old doors and exposed ceiling timbers throughout.
