Casement windows have leaded quarries in wooden frames in multiple lights with tiled hoods and sills, a similar simpler version of the main house: ground floor has a 3-light and a 5-light window each side of the wide gateway; first floor has two 4-light windows on each side with paired 3-light windows over the gateway - all these set close under the overhanging eaves. N facing entrance elevation is plainer with 2 long hipped roofed full dormers. Gateway interior is limewashed and has doorways each side named Ty'r Garth and Ty Heulog with vertically panelled doors. A fine pair of decorative gates of scrolled ironwork swept to centre have matching side panels; small flanking walls forming an entrance extend from frontage.
