A farmhouse (with the Courtyard Cottage possibly as an attached original cottage) probably pre-dating the acquisition of Glynhir by Peter DuBuisson in 1770. This building and the barn are probably all that remain of the farmyard buildings and 'great improvements . . . made by the late owner' then referred to in the notice of sale of the estate.


The centrepiece of a two-storey farmhouse range linked by an infill section to the east, slightly set back, to the Coach-house block. The cottage or former farmhouse faces north to the farmyard. Local sandstone rubble masonry, local sandstone roofing slabs with tile ridges. Rendered chimneys at each end of the cottage.
The north elevation of the Bailiff's cottage (to east of the Brewhouse link) is of two windows to the upper storey, with square openings tight to the eaves. Doorway and three windows below with cambered arches. Simple porch to doorway. All front elevation carpentry replaced.
The rear elevation, facing the mansion, is a range of three segmental-arched two-light casement windows of which the one to the right has been walled up. Each casement of four panes. Stone sills. Beneath the latter window is a ground storey fixed eight-pane window with a deep segmental head and a stone sill.
