Characteristic Pencaer massive chimney breast with timber lintel at E end, E end room open to roof, which has C19 timbers. Croglofft with ladder access over small 4-pane window and entrance door.

Reasons for Listing

Included as good example of older croglofft cottage. The arrangement of door to right is unusual and suggests that the cottage may have been lengthened even before W end was added, extending originally only to left jamb of doorway.
