Doldowlod was purchased by the engineer James Watt of Soho, Birmingham, in 1803 and was developed as a country residence by his son James Watt junior (1769-1848) of Birmingham in the second quarter of the C19. The present house was built in the 1840s as an extension to an existing farmhouse, which was demolished when the house was further extended in the 1870s. The tack room and farm building were built after James Watt Gibson-Watt (1831-91) inherited Doldowlod in 1874 and are shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.


A 2-storey outbuilding of coursed rubble stone, square in plan with slate roof, hipped to the front and gabled to the rear, on projecting eaves. The upper storey, housing the tack room, faces the service courtyard to the N and the lower storey faces a farmyard at lower level to the S. Facing the service yard the tack room has a round-headed doorway with boarded door and small-pane overlight. Its rear has 2 small-pane wooden cross windows under flat stone arches. Below are 2 round-headed openings with keystones, and lean-tos in the side walls. Attached to the side walls are rubble-stone coped walls retaining a steep bank between the 2 yards.


The lower storey has 2 brick jack-arches and a central cast-iron pier.
