Asymmetrical 2-window range east front; 3-light casements with horizontal glazing bars, first floor under eyebrow eaves; central doorway with plank door; ground floor openings have timber lintels. Rear [west] two eyebrow dormers with casements, single storey outshut with double-Roman tile lean-to roof in angle with late C20 wing on left.
INTERIOR: Former kitchen on left [south] has deeply chamfered cross-beam with hollow-step stops, large gable-end fireplace with slightly chamfered cambered timber bressumer on rebuilt brick jambs and cupboard in rear wall with plank door. Right hand [now centre] room has roughly hewn axial beam and later joists.

Harmans Cottage is a good example of a C17 2-room plan house, with later additions that do not affect the integrity of the original house.
