Single-storey extension to rear, with catslide roof. Lean-to extension to right, C18, with felted roof. Two storeys. Five-window range of C20 casements. Two C20 doors. The right crosswing has a jetty to the front, fully plastered.

The interior has exposed heavy studding, main posts with jowls at first-floor and tiebeam level, moulded transverse beams with carved foliate stops, exposed plain joists of horizontal section, large wood-burning hearth facing to left. The roofs of the main range and crosswing are both of crownpost construction with axial bracing, complete.
