History: Built c1800. Originally a farmhouse and Inn. At one time known as the Cross Foxes, later the Wynnstay Arms.

Slate hanging to main range which is timber-framed to rear; rendered flanking blocks. Slate roofs with end wall stacks throughout.

Similar detail to 12-pane sashes of first floor. Similar windows in flanking blocks, but with French doors inserted to ground floor at each side. Light-timber framing in rear of main range, including lean-to at ground floor. Painted brick nogging. Largely modern openings in lean-to but 2 small-paned horizontally sliding sash windows with small panes to first floor (a third window is renewed in an earlier opening). Rear wing is brick with small-paned iron 3-light windows with chambered brick heads.
Stone steps lead up to the front door. The front garden is bounded by iron railings on a stone plinth. The rails have fleur-de-lis style heads and there are 2 gates, 1 to the front and 1 to the W side.
