Rough stone platform in front of lower gable which has doorway with projecting rough stone lintel. High-set pitching door in upper gable, accessed from barn. the later barn is aligned along the slope to the rear (uphill) of the cowhouse: also rough boulder construction (though a smaller grade) with slate roof. Doorway to left of lower long wall, and pitching doors in each gable.


Cowhouse has fine surviving interior with 3 curved principals with roughly cambered collars, with their feet set into the wall in the manner of raised crucks, carrying 2 flat purlins; pegged rafters. Stone flags to central walkway, with some cobbles visible under concrete to stalls; timber stall dividers also survive. Barn has simple A-frame trusses and renewed rafters.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a well-preserved field cowhouse and barn group. The cowhouse is a particularly good (and probably early) example of its type, retaining internal carpentry of a high order.
