The garden house appears on the first edition OS map of 1874, but it must have been very new then.


Octagonal garden house constructed of river pebbles with dressed pennant quoins to each corner. Pyramind Welsh slate roof. Pointed arch doorway on one face with pointed arch windows on the flanking faces, the rest are blind. The doorway is blocked with a modern steel gate.


The interior is now featureless.
