Originally built as a house in the early 17th century and the attic was extended in the late 19th century (Gambrel Roof). The exposed gable wall clearly shows the line of the original roof structure.
It was converted into a shop and the current shop fascia on the ground floor dates from the early 20th century.
I remember it being a craft shop and tea room from when I was a small child and it remained that way until several years ago when it was sold. It still has the tea room, although extended to the whole of the ground floor while the upper floors have been remodelled and opened as a B&B.
It claims to be the oldest tea room in the town.
It was granted a Grade II listing on 7th June 1972.
