House, early C15 origin with additions of the late C15, C16 and C18. Main
facade on C18 reface in Flemish bond brickwork, rear walls in chequered rubble
and flint. C15 cross wing in rubble and flint with ashlar dressings below and
timber box framing with tension braces and C17 brick nogging above. Tiled
roofs with brick stacks in various locations. Main facade: 2 storeys, 3

floor under segmental brick heads. Near central pedimented, pilastered
doorcase with part-glazed, panelled door. The early wing retains 2 original
2-light, square headed windows, now blocked.
Internal features (RCHM): early range retains a 9 bay arch-braced collar
truss roof with curved windbracing; various stop-chamfered beams.
The original purpose of the building is unclear but it was probably one of
the buildings of the important Cistercian nunnery which stood on the site,
largely demolished at the time of the Dissolution. (RCHM, Dorset, vol.IV,
