Farmhouse, now private dwelling. Probably early C16, remodelled in c17 with C20
alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof. House faces away from

left end. Through-passage, hall and inner room, and room over cart entrance'.
Lower end, formerly farm buildings, entirely rebuilt to form separate cottage (not

except for half dormer which has a C19 2-light casement, 6-panes per light to its
lower half. 2-light timber mullion window at right end. Large double plank doors
to cart entrance.
Interior: stop chamfered beams to hall and inner room. Old chamfered doorframes to
rear of inner room, between hall and inner room and from through-passage to hall,
and stop chamfered door surround to stair turret doorway to rear of hall, similar
surround to upper storey rear passage doorway. 2 raised cruck trusses over hall

surviving to foot of rear blade. The truss over lower end has some slight smoke-
blackening, with collar tenoned into soffit mortices to the blades, the other truss
is clean and has lap-jointed collar, so is possibly an early C17 replacement.
Another truss to the gable end of the main range forms a closed partition with the

trusses have threaded purlins and ridge purlin partly intact. To the base of the
stair turret on the former outside wall now enclosed by dairy, a small timber 2-
