Two Private Dwellings. Originally a terrace of 3 Cottages, perhaps contemporary with Woodside Cottage and also built for Hall staff. Emonon on right appears to embrace 2 cottages. Mellow red brick. Swithland slate hipped roof. 3 large ridge stacks but stack to Honeysuckle Cottage does not match others. Two storeys. Generally casement windows. 1 late C19 rectangular bay with deep cornice and lead flat to front. A number of arched openings replaced with flat heads to accommodate enlarged windows. Hipped roof to Honeysuckle Cottage embraces an extension to rear. Break in line of eaves and mismatched stack suggests that Honeysuckle Cottage may be a later addition. Alterations, particularly to Emonon detract from the overall composition.
