Late medieval with early C19 and C20 alterations. Former house now calf shed forming N end of barn at NW end of the farm complex. The building lies within the medieval deer park of the bishop's palace at Lamphey, and is similar to a number of small 2 storey late medieval stone buildings surviving in Pembrokeshire, at Carswell, West Tarr, West Trewent, and East Trewent Farms.


Rubble limestone with some external render, corrugated iron roof covering. Building is 2 storey, rectangular in plan measuring circa 5m (N-S) by 4.5m (EW) with small square stair tower at SW corner. W elevation has C19 door under flat brick arch. N elevation shows projecting chimney stack and corbel at eaves.


Interior has gabled N wall with blocked doorway under wooden lintel to L of the ground floor and a blocked reveal of a slot window to R. At first floor level is another blocked doorway (perhaps original entrance) alongside a fire place with quarter round and filleted corbels and a chamfered stone lintel; there is a rectangular recess alongside this fireplace. The W wall has the C19 doorway to R and a blocked doorway in the SW corner leading to the remains of a stone spiral staircase; this opens into the first floor via a partly blocked doorway above. A corbel carries the first floor, and there is a blocked window at first floor to R. The S wall ground floor has fireplace with segmental stone arch, now blocked, with a small slot window with splayed reveal to L. The wall is cut back to take the staircase doorway and there is a corbel above to carry the floor. Possible blocked doorway at first floor (but may be C19 insertion to adjacent barn). Modern feeding trough etc. There is a corbel to carry central roof truss at midpoint of the wall top. The floor is now concrete; pegged roof trusses (C19?).
