A small cottage in two units. Of stone rubble fully rendered with steep pitched replaced slate roof incorporating dormers. Single storey and attic and front porch to the main unit with lower single bay single storey extension to side. Windows altered but to rear a pentice the length of the main unit is retained; beneath are two small casement windows. Battered.
Interior retains open fireplace with bread oven, spiral stair with oak treads to right behind original wide plank door with deep hinges, heavy cross beams stopped and chamfered. Two small rooms were formerly separated by post and panel screen with segmental arch but to enlarge the room, the re-sited screen now serves as panelling to the gable end wall with a new staircase adjacent. A-frame roof trusses believed to survive.
Included as a small regional house which although partly modernised retains a substantial proportion of its historic fabric in particular a wide pentice and interior features.
