Probably built late C18/early C19. A range at right-angles to the stable block was substantially rebuilt in brick probably late C19 and garage doors inserted late C20.


2-storey main stable range is of coursed rubble with ashlar dressings and a range attached to the north east which is of stone very largely rebuilt in brick. Slate roof with stone copings and kneelers to gables, brick chimney. The buildings form an L shape around a yard to the rear of Plas Isaf to which the stables are attached by a low range with a carriage arch.

The stables face E on to the yard. A door with an overlight is situated off-centre with a circular pitching eye above it and a multi-paned cast-iron window at ground floor level on each side. To the far left is a cart entrance with a boarded door and a small boarded opening above. To the far right there is a multi-paned cast-iron window on each floor. A range attached at right angles to the right side forming the N side of the yard. It has a late C20 garage entrance and in the gabled end elevation a range of pigeon holes.

The rear elevation has a small brick outshut and stone steps up to a door in the upper floor. Attached on the right is a projecting range, perhaps a loose box, and on the left side a projecting gabled carriage house with wide arched entrance. Attached to the left of this is a walled garden built of roughly coursed rubble with brick buttresses.


Interior not accessible at time of 1997 survey.
