Second-half C18 vernacular pair of single-storey reflected cottages, now one dwelling; part rock-built and with boulder foundations. Of whitened rubble with old slate roof and plain, squat end chimneys. Each unit has a central entrance with boarded stable doors and glazed upper panel; this is flanked by late C19 4-pane sashes contained within the original small openings. Modern extensions to both gable ends and modern windows to the rear, one to each former cottage.
