House, mainly C16, with C19 and early C20 additions. Timber framed, mainly
plastered with some weatherboarding, roofed with handmade red clay tiles.
Complex plan of irregular E-form, aspect SW, with 3 wings extending NE. One
internal chimney stack at SW end of middle wing, one at junction of SE wing
and middle range, external stacks at NE ends of 2 outside wings, and extensions
beyond. Stair tower between SE wing and middle wing. Other single-storey
extensions to NE. 2 storeys. SW elevation, 6-panel door in C20 doorcase with 2

The interior has chamfered beams with lamb's tongue stops, and sections of early
