Earlier 19th century. Pair of single storey, semi-detached T-plan cottages sited to S of walled garden, formerly with kennels. Squared and snecked stugged rubble with ashlar dressings, rubble to sides and rear. Steps to central doors with letterbox fanlights, flanking windows with modern glazing. 2-bay wings projecting at rear with small-pane timber sash and case windows. Graded grey slates, bracketted eaves and timber barge boards to gable ends. End and mutual ashlar stacks, shouldered and corniced with moulded cans.
