Byre or stable range. Probably late C17 or early C18.
Timber framed on high brick plinth with pained brick panel infill and slate roof. Gables both rebuilt in brick. 2 storeyed, comprising byre or stable range, originally with 4 doors. Now 2 outer doors, and 2 central windows, made in earlier doorways. 2 square shuttered openings to loft above, which has cross vents in the brick panels. Former cartshed continues under the same roof-line to the west, but is probably a later extension of the building, since it uses a slightly different pattern of framing. The formerly open lower storey has been filled in to form a loose box, but the chamfered beam which formed the lintel remains. Stone staircase to loft against gable wall of cartshed, incorporating dog kennel beneath the stairs.
A good attractive example of an early range of farm-buildings, which forms a group with Gwalia Farmhouse.
