The structure, which is probably of the C18, was formerly the stables attached to the SW gable end of Bodfasarn, and was converted to a butcher's shop of Hugh Jones. It is now a service adjunct to the main house.


Built of large rubble stone independently of the house to which it is attached, with an old small slate roof. One storey and attic, 2 bays. Modern paned window and boarded door to the former shopfront, with vertical boarding above. Small 4-paned casement window to the ground floor, with a cambered stone arch, and a deeply set small 4-pane window directly under the eaves lighting the attic. External stone steps on the gable end rise by 7 steps to an external porch with a projecting slab canopy.


Said by RCAHMW to have a pegged collar beam truss.
