The building is of stone, pebbledashed, and with a slate roof between gable stacks. Two storeys, 3 window bays, with the Post Office and shop on the ground floor of the 2 left bays.

Short rear wing, angled with the road.


The shop is open and unmodernised internally. The dwelling has a high boarded dado in the entrance lobby leading to a margin glazed inner door.
