An early 19th century building sympathetically altered circa 1840. The amin section retains its original appearance to S elevation. The wings formerly extended at right angles to N for a short distance. According to the present (1999) occupant it was built as a farmhouse and more recently divided up into 2 cottages. It was converted back to a single dwelling during the renovations of circa 1970. Prior to this it contained a box bed.
