Lodge, earlier C19, to Moat or Mote, the demolished mansion built in the 1820s or 1830s for W. H. Scourfield. The Scourfields owned the estate from the late C14 to 1926. The estate was called Nova Mota in 1438. The old house became ruinous in the late C18 when W. H. Scourfield Sr left for Robeston Hall. He died in 1805 and his son W. H. Scourfield Jr built a new mansion and presumably the lodge c.1820-30. He died in 1843, and a relative J.H. Phillips of Williamston inherited. He took the name Scourfield in 1862 and became a baronet 1876, the year he died. His son, Sir Owen Scourfield of Moat and Williamston died 1921.
The style of the house and lodge suggests Edward Haycock as architect, the lodge similar to lodges at Cilwendeg, Boncath.

Added C20 rear SW wing with ridge stack and two 12-pane horned sashes. End wall has small 12-pane sash flanked by narrow 4-pane sashes.
