Full Details

DESCRIPTION
Clematis Cottage, a detached brick three bedroom cottage, built in 1810 as one of number of additions to the centre of the village by the Garth Estate, as is evidenced by its Coalbrookedale Georgian windows which others have. It was originally called The Post House and was a toll house for the Arddleen Road. It was Grade 2 listed in 1981 together with others of its neighbours in the circle around St Aelhaeran’s Church, a medieval church which is Grade 1 listed itself. Its listing refers to the significance of its place in the circle of other houses. Its interior retains the original hob and one original bedroom fireplace. It has been occupied since 1934 by the family of the current owners who bought it from the Garth Estate when it was split up after WW2. It was modernised by them in 1951 with a back extension kitchen and bathroom being added. Its electric wiring was redone in 2020.
Its large garden contains a number of fruit trees including a large species tree which was identified and named in 2019.
