The cottage bears the date 1692, originally over the door, now reset over the window since a porch was added.
Timber framed, with whitewashed infill panels, hipped slate roof replacing thatch after 1920. Single storey, with roof space converted to an attic bedroom in c.1960's when a gabled dormer was added. Square panel framing, without braces, 9 panels long by 4 wide, and 2 panels high. C20 door within open porch and paned timber windows renewed in earlier openings. Brick stack.
The door opens to a lobby against the timber framed stack. Living room to left, with central spine beam with ogee chamfer stops. Timber framed cross partition has doors to a parlour, and a small service room. Behind the stack a second service room or parlour. The stack has a stone built oven on the rear wall.
