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
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

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.
