Interior of house and farm building range not accessible at the time of initial inspection (May 1996). Interior of farm buildings range subsequently inspected June 2010; divided by timber framing into 5 bays; framing survives largely intact with simple strut roof trusses. 2 doors to left give 5 access to what were presumably stabling, right hand door gives access to small room with feed rack and has a door inserted alongside to its right, probably mid C20th, giving access to a small full depth room. Three doors further to the right are for a pair of stalls with central feeding passage, the stalls and feeding trough surviving.

Of group value with the church and other small scale buildings around the churchyard.
