In 2 parts, south-east section built 1778, south-west portion enlarged
and rebuilt 1823 and later. Coursed rubble with freestone quoins and dressings,
hipped slate roof.
Earlier part 2 storeys, 3 bays with recessed centre, windows 2:1:2 sashes,
only first floor left hand retaining glazing bars. Central portico with
flat entablature on 2 Tuscan columns. Cornice and blocking course.
Later part larger in Tudor-Gothic style, two and a half storeys, parapet

windows and various gables. Ground floor bay window to south-east. Attached
to the north of the house by a lower extension is a gabled former coach-house,
rubble with slate roof, pigeon holes in gable to west. It is said to contain
inscriptions inside including advice 'to my successor' by Rev H T Ellacombe
1835 (he also wrote an excellent archaeological account of the Parish
Church). The house is screened from other aspects by the famous and exotic
arboretum cultivated by Rev H T Ellacombe, who wrote "In a Gloucestershire
Garden" and "In my Vicarage Garden and Elsewhere" circa 1893.
