The farmstead at Hafod y Llan has early origins (part of the grange of Aberconwy in the C16); the present farmhouse is a C18 building, and its farmbuildings represent a C19 building phase marking a significant investment in agricultural improvement in this area in the mid C19.

Slate hanging to gable. 2 storeyed, with gable-end paired arched entrances (one with boarded door) beneath half-hipped gable with boarded loft door and owl hole centrally over. Elevation to farmyard has external staircase to upper doorway, centrally beneath dormer gable. Door to stable beyond this. Single window to stable opposite this doorway in E elevation, and 2 wide small-paned windows to loft above.
