The main front of the west wing has a wide opening supported by a reinforced steel joist (late 1960s or early 1970s) replacing former double doors, with a hay loft above. The south wing, which runs east-west, has two double doorways with opening above, flanked on the left by a round-headed archway (blocked up at its south end since the late C20). To the far left it is flanked by a single doorway and to its right by three single doorways

The east gable, constructed of local dressed and coarsed stone, has two openings at first floor level. The west gable has a date stone of 1862, and is constructed of brick laid in a Flemish bond. The rear of the building to the south is constructed of dressed coarsed stone. The north gable is of brick laid in a Flemish bond with dressed limestone quoins.

Interior: the stable room in the west wing has a geometrically laid cobbled stone floor, wainscotted panelling with a corner through and lime plastered walls. Narrow, open wood stairs lead to the hay lofts above the south and west wing. The rooms in the south wing contain stone or tile floors, fixed casement windows to the south, wainscotted panelling and saddle racks in some. The hay lofts above have wooden floors and mill-sawn King Post roofs.

The stable block was built for Alkerton House (qv) with which it forms and important group.
