A historic building recording and desk-based assessment were conducted upon a Grade II listed cider barn in Doddiscombsleigh, prior to its conversion into a holiday cottage. The documentary evidence and the surviving machinery within Cider Barn both suggested that the present building was probably constructed, and the machinery installed, between c.1840 and 1860. This ties in with an expansion of the farm and the extension and adaptation of the other farm buildings at that time, features indicative of a change in ownership.
