Possibly late 18th / earlier 19th century in origin with later additions and alterations; converted to residential use late 20th century. Classical single storey (with basement in part), U-plan former stable block set on sloping site, adjoining outer elevation walled garden, enclosing central courtyard. Coursed and droved pink sandstone to front; tooled sandstone rubble to sides; rubble to basement; sandstone ashlar dressings. Base course to front; droved quoins and long and short surrounds to openings; projecting cills.
E (ENTRANCE) ELEVATION: symmetrical 7-bay entrance front comprising slightly advanced pedimented bay breaking eaves at centre with large, round-arched opening centred at ground; modern glazed door and timber boarding deep-set within. Single windows in full-height, round-arched recesses flanking entrance and grouped in pairs to outer right and left. Squat, segmental-arched basement opening to outer left with boarded timber door.

N (SIDE) ELEVATION: 6-bay. Modern garage door at ground off-set to left of centre. Blank windows in all bays above.
Modern timber windows throughout. Grey slate pitched and piended roofs. Brick-built ridge stack to S; rendered brick-built ridge stack to N; various circular cans.
INTERIOR: not seen 1999.
GARDEN WALLS AND BRIDGE: rubble-coped rubble walls partially enclosing site, incorporating small bridge to SE.
Set to the SW of Tweedhill House with which it is no longer associated (see separate list entry). Now a private residence (1999), this former stable block retains some good details - the round-arched recesses and pedimented entrance being of particular note. The walled garden which encloses the courtyard to the W was also originally associated with the earlier Tweedhill House (itself probably replaced in the mid to later 19th century). It is now separately owned and has a modern house erected within it (1999) - see separate list entry, 'Tweedhill Garden'.
