Brewhouse section to the L with off-centre entrance via 3 slate steps; 4-pane square window to the L, both openings with expressed timber lintels. To the R of this is a stable entrance with 2-pane sliding sash to its L, and a further 2-pane window tucked under the eaves and retaining some original leaded panes; cambered heads to the ground-floor openings.

Further, open barn entrance to the R, with exposed timber lintel and boarded door; 2-light framed and boarded loft windows above. R of the latter entrance are 2 tiers of ventilation slits. Stepped-down at the lower end of the range is a further 3-bay block with 2 stable entrances and a full-height open end bay. Square framed light to the loft above the stable doors, and vertical wooden boarding to the end bay. The lower gable end has an upper loading bay and this last section has an outshut to the rear with corrugated iron roof and boarded door to the N return. To the R of this is a flight of stone steps leading up to an upper entrance with boarded door contained within a shallow gabled dormer.
