Farm house. Originally two houses - possibly a unit system, linked by roofing over a narrow passage between them. Left hand house late C15-early C16. Right-hand house probably early C17 but altered, and extended to right in C18 or C19. Flint and rubble stone walls with some brick dressings. Hipped thatched roof; brick stacks along ridge.

Five buttresses to front wall. Flush panel door in C20 thatched porch. Ground floor has nine casement windows, one with lead lights, the rest with glazing bars; some in altered openings. Attic has ten dormers, five with lead lights, one with cast iron glazing, four with casements with glazing bars, C20 two storeyed rear extension in matching construction; also a small flat-roofed extension. Left hand section originally an end-hall house, with two-bay hall open to the roof, and service rooms on right. Hall floored over and stack inserted, early C17. This section retains two smoke-blackened jointed cruck trusses, the centre turns off the hall with braced collar. Part of cruck post visible on ground floor. Shouldered arched doorway on ground floor. Inserted stack has stone jambs and timber lintel. Deep chamfered beams to inserted floor. Part of a second inserted stack remains, with large open fireplace. In right-hand section, some chamfered ceiling beams. Considerably restored c1980, but early internal features retained.
