Barn, probably of the later C18, part of a former small gentry estate. The barn stands on its own behind the house and at right angles to the other remaining outbuilding, which has a datestone of 1730 with the arms of Thomas Philipps, a younger son of Tygwyn who settled at Pentre in the early C18. The property passed to the Dynevor estate in the later C18 and was still known as Pentre Philipps in the estate map book of 1793, but in 1796 it was occupied by Joseph Parr Wood and called Pentre Parr. On the 1841 Tithe Map Pentre Parr was owned by Lord Dynevor and occupied by Mary Philipps.


Barn, rubble stone, part whitewashed, with stone tiled roof. E front has tall double doors with timber lintel to left, lower double door with timber lintel to right and three ventilation loops, to extreme left and right, and to centre.
