House, once three cottages. C17, 1905, when it was restored and altered by W.F Unsworth, to produce the epitome of the romantic vernacular cottage, with later C20 extension, in style.
Walls exposed at ground floor level, with ironstone (some galletting) in its lower part and brickwork above, buttresses on the lowest side: the upper walls are tile-hung, with some scalloped bands and with canopied sections at three levels. Tile roof with gables, one hipped end, and hipped dormers; old central shafted stack and an ornamental stack of 1905. One storey and attic, irregular fenestration. Casements with leaded lights. Deep open porch, with a massive boarded door.
Interior: the massive fireplace of stone and brick remain from the original lobby-entrance house and also some C17 beams. There is much woodwork of 1905 in similar style, some wide floorboards, and wood and ironwork door furniture.
Small later wing at the north-west corner. The drop in ground and the staggered plan, on the east side, has been used to enrich the elevations, and at each end of the house walls of stone with brick dressings extend into the terraced garden.
