To rear former cider cellar and room has been converted to additional living accommodation. Adjoining older unit to right with a slightly different roof pitch is the 2 bay byre range; to left doorway under shallow timber lintel, small window to right with thick wooden frame and 2 slender mullions and pitching door to loft above; the end bay is open at first floor level where barn adjoins with ground floor doorway; to rear a doorway and large blocked doorway with timber lintel; ventilation slit.
