Regularly coursed and dressed limestone block facing to rubble core to crosswing (uncoursed rubble exposed to rear gable); regularly coursed and dressed rubble to long range. Also partly timber framed (roughcast and weatherboarded to front of long range); machine tile and corrugated iron roofs. Basic L-plan with gabled crosswing projecting to rear on right; two gables projecting to rear of long range with various rubblestone lean-tos attached; lower malthouse attached to gable end of long range.
Two storeys. Early C20 casement-fenestration to house, one on each floor to crosswing and to long range, first-floor window breaking eaves. Entrance to left of crosswing; flat-roofed stone porch over six-panel door (top panels now glazed) in fluted wood surround. Partly illegible datestone inscribed "SL/J/-7--" above first floor window to gable. Former integral end stack with dripstone and red brick top at junction with continuation of malthouse to higher range and prominent rendered ridge stack to centre of crosswing.
Malthouse has plank door on first floor approached by external lateral stone steps with small hatches to ground floor and below eaves. Lower range has plank door to right with small hatch immediately to left and small ridge stack. Decorative cusped quatrefoil framing (probably late C16) to apex of gable projecting to rear.
