1 and 2 Tai Cochion consists of a pair of joined cottages in the village of Nannerch, Flintshire, Wales. Each of the cottages is designated by Cadw as a Grade II listed building.[1][2] They were built for the railway engineer William Barber Buddicom in 1877–88 and designed by the Chester architect John Douglas.[3]

The cottages are built in brick in vernacular revival style with tiled hipped roofs. Each is a mirror image of the other and they share a central chimney stack; the cottages are divided by a buttress in the lower storey. They have gables containing a lozenge pattern in the brickwork. Both cottages have rear extensions added in the 20th century.[1][2]
