B-Group with Campend Steading (listed separately). The farmhouse is adjacent to a well-preserved example of a crowstepped steading and some farm workers' cottages. Originally the farmhouse appears to have been a rectangular 3-bay structure with a later wings added. The name Campend originates from a Roman fort thought to have stood on or near this site. The farm is now run as Lowe's Fruit Farm.
