The barn is the oldest building on the farmstead. It was built as a corn barn in c1820 and was converted into an implement shed and machine floor in c1890. This was when the farm went over from arable to dairy and the loft, calf pens and pigsties date from then. The farm remained tenanted until the 1980s, and became an exhibit of the Museum of Welsh Life in 1989. It is furnished and displayed as a very complete Vale of Glamorgan farmstead of the 1930s.


Whitewashed stone rubble with Welsh slate roofs, some of the pen walling is in brick. Large barn with corrugated steel shed attached at the rear. The yard elevation has cart doors and two doors below to the left and two openings above. Cart openings on rear and staircase to loft, also in the gable end. Roof hipped over all.
Attached single storey range on yard side, this has three doors and four windows to the calf pens. Pigsties attached to the barn at the rear where there is another door and window to the barn.


Lofted interior to the barn. Machine sawn roof trusses. Calf pens have tiled floors, feeding racks and king post truss roofs.
