Exterior: Early C17 farmhouse with C18 and C19 service additions; single storey plus attic. Rubble construction on boulder foundations, formerly whitened with medium-pitched undulating slate roof and rendered rubble gable parapets.

Slightly-recessed 12-pane sash window to L, a modern replacement; modern ceramic tiled cill. 2 further replacement windows of 9 panes to small gabled dormers above; these rendered.
Adjoining to the E and both stepped-down and set back, a whitened rubble former stable block with slate roof; probably C18. Off-centre stable doors (to L) with exposed timber lintel. Adjoining this to the E, again stepped-down and slightly set back, a later carthouse extension, probably early C19. To the rear of the house, and forming a T-plan with it, a later C17 service extension; construction as before.
Interior: Hall with stopped-chamfered bressumer to large end fireplace and similar main ceiling beam. To the R of the fireplace a good stone corkscrew newel stair, its oak upper doorcase original; pegged Tudor-arched opening. Similar, plainer opening to rear service extension. Contemporary oak post-and-panel partition screen separating former hall and parlour with simple grooved decoration; plain joists to parlour ceiling.
A C17 vernacular farmhouse retaining contemporary interior detail and in a prominent village location.
