Farmhouse, now 2 cottages. C16 core, subdivided and remodelled in C18. Plastered
cob on rubble footings; rubble and brick stacks; wheat reed thatched roof.
Original 3-room and through passage house was converted into two 2-room cottages

the left (eastern) cottage, the former passage and service room. 2 storeys
throughout and overall irregular 4-window front, 2 to each cottage. Left cottage
has early C20 casements and central door with C20 slate-roofed porch. Right
cottage has C20 casements with glazing bars on ground floor and C18 3-light
casements to first with slender pine casements and leaded panes of thin glass.
(Another survives to rear). Door with C18 oak bead moulded frame inserted through
former lateral hall stack with still projects slightly from wall. Eaves rise up
from left to right above door. Roof half-hipped to left. Inside left cottage
