rubble with some rendered cob on rubble plinth, the later parts with some red brick
dressings. Gable-ended Welsh-slate roofs.
Plan: 1-plan range, facing farmyard to the north-east and north-west. Former
outbuilding, probably a former stable, adjoining the house to the south-east, the
left-hand part converted into a kitchen in the late C20. Range of 5 former pigstys
adjoining at right angles to the rear. Range of farmbuildings adjoining the former

Exterior: Former stable adjoining the house has a pair of C19 two-light wooden

pegged wooden frame and dressed-stone segmental-arched head. Range adjoining at
right angles to the right consists of a former shippon/stable to left which has a
central window with stone segmental-arched head flanked by plank doors with stone
segmental-arched heads, central 2 bay linhay (partly blocked by C20 corrugated iron)
with C20 window and plank door with wooden lintel to right, and later C19 shippon to
