Cotswold Stable

Summary

This barn and stable were part of the Cotswold Cottage original site. The larger portion was the barn, used for storing and threshing grain. The wide doors and high ceilings gave room for threshing with a flail, or storing a cart. The smaller portion was the stable, likely for a cow or ox. The low ceilings keep the stable warmer.
