Elegant late Regency vicarage, dated 1837, though with fragmentary remains of an earlier core.


2 storey; rubble construction with slate roofs, hipped to the main NW section. Wide, oversailing eaves and rubble stackswith weather coursing. Small pane sash windows all retained, mostly 16 pane with deep ground-floor lintels. Entrances to both NE and SW sides; the former has amodern recessed, boarded door with plain rectangular fan. To L a slightly lower 2-window cross-range and to R the 1-window end of the main range over a lean-to outhouse. A further outhouse projects forward from the NW corner, a former wash-house; large entrance to NE gable face. The 2-window NW side, overlooking the estuary, has a stringcourse at first-floor cill level with date plaque to centre in a stone surround. The stringcourse continues around to the SW side as far as the main projecting bay and also just returns around the NW corner. First floor window to L over 20-pane sash behind later C19 half-glazed French doors. Slightly lower projecting bay to the R with a shallow bowed front; intersecting tracery andTudor-arched head to first-floor 12-pane sash; small-pane glazed French doors below with similar arched head. Twin-gabled rear with plain chimneys and lean-to and gabled projections; good 40-pane stair light.

2-storey coach house and single-storey stable block adjoin the house to the S. The former has a reduced flat-arched entrance, now with concrete lintel, though with large original stone lintel above. Weather coursing between coach house and stepped-down former stable; this with old slate roof. Boarded stable doors with ventilation slit to L. To the R, a covered passage, continuously roofed with the stable block leading through to the garden at rear. Both blocks are extensive remodellings of earlier buildings.


Single flight stair with elm swept rail, oak and iron stick balusters and pine treads and risers. Good reeded architraves with corner rosettes to hall and main ground floor and first floor rooms; plain Gothic fireplace to latter, of slate with pointed arched panels and quatrefoils.
