Description
A humble symmetrical cottage originally two rooms wide and two rooms deep. Walls are constructed of limestone random rubble with red brick quoins. The corrugated iron roof is hipped. Windows are timber framed casements.

History
This building is thought to predate 1860. Its form and construction suggest that it was built around this time. Prior to 1900 the cottage was owned by Walter Reynell & Sons as accommodation for its employees and was until recently known as 'Harvest Cottage'. It appears that substantial additions are about to be undertaken at the rear of the cottage.
