Rubble stone with a graded stone slate roof on the E, Welsh slate on the W. The building is of 3 bays, comprising an artist's gallery at the N end, workshop at the centre and stable at the S end, with attic accommodation over. C19 lean-to stabling at the rear. Two light C19 timber windows, 3-light to the gallery, and a boarded door set slightly off-centre. Three gabled dormers. At the N end, the medieval work comprises walls 1m thick, with a high painted arched doorcase to the gallery, a wall of approximately 6m run at the rear, and the gable end containing a large stack, the fireplace facing out to the N, now broken open, and a later fireplace and flue added internally. The rear building, now a woodstore, is toothed in to the medieval work.
Interior: May have originally had a transverse vault, now whitewashed. Tie and collar beam trusses.
