Full Description

The building to its southwest of Lorna Doone Farmhouse, labelled Primrose Cottage, first appears on the 1946-8 aerial photographs flown in this area by the Royal Air Force. It appears to have since been little altered. [1-3] Primrose Cottage is rendered with a slate roof and is later than the late 19th Century Lorna Doone Farmhouse but relates well to its neighbour.
