This building dates to 1395.
Garden Cottage, West Meon, is a three-bay, box-framed house. It has a clasped purlin roof which is fully wind-braced. Much of the external wall framing survives, as does and internal jetty and elements of hall the screen. The house has a single-bay hall, is 21 feet high at its apex and covers 804 square feet. It is typical of a number of late-medieval peasant houses that survive in Hampshire (see Thatched Cottage, North Warnborough - below).
