Longthorns Cottage is an attractive semi-detached dwelling, one of a pair, built during the late nineteenth century and finished in local, red sandstone. It is thought to have originally been the gardener’s cottage for the nearby Longthorns House until all were sold during the sixties. The new owners farmed nearby and subsequently resold the main house, retaining the cottage and keeping the former gardener on to become their cowman. We understand that the cowman and his family lived in the cottage as tenants for over one hundred years and both he and his wife lived out their days there.
