Former house which went out of domestic use when the present farmhouse was built in the earlier C19. The building seems to have C17 origins with the central core of the building being oldest. To the N, the house was extended in-line at a relatively early date; to the S the earlier C19 bakehouse block has dates in the plaster from the 1840s. A fragment of medieval window tracery is built into the S gable of the main block, now visible only from the bakehouse.


Former house, now agricultural range. Stone; roofs generally slate (some riven stone ridge pieces), but some repairs in corrugated sheeting. Upper block with higher roof line has 2 first floor windows at different heights, and 2 ground floor windows (some windows originally sliding sashes); doorway to L.
N gable end has small stone chimney and ventilator slits (some signs of blocked opening at upper level); small lean-to. The rear of central block has large lateral projecting chimney with tall stone stack, and small store entered from within. To S, with lower roof line is 2-storey block with brick chimney at gable end; doorway to R, and to L, single casement window to each floor.
At the extreme S end of the building, an attached C20 open shed is not of special interest.


Central room has stop-chamfered beams; lateral fireplace with curved bressumer; wooden stair in NE corner; blocked doorway to S, and doorway to rear store room. N room has large transverse beam, small fireplace. Upstairs, old roof timbers survive with early purlins and truss.
In S bakehouse, open to roof, there is large chimney against S gable. In gable of main block, high up, is fragment of medieval window tracery in brownish sandstone.
