House. 1887. Slate stone rubble with brick dressings. Slate roof with hipped ends.
Brick axial stack.

stair hall with reception room on lower side (right) and service room against bank on
2 storeys. Regular 2-window front elevation on lower side with battered base and
brick segmental arches to openings. Single storey canted bay window on ground floor
with three 24-pane sashes. Two 20-pane sashes on first floor.
Interior not inspecteed.
Forms part of a group of similar houses overlooking a steep-sided combe leading down
to Boscastle Harbour; the other houses are Valley View, Lewarne, Meachard,
Glenfinart, Belmont and Polqueens (qv).
