Comprises cartshed at centre, flanked by stable to east and tack room to west. Main elevation faces north: Cartshed has double doors with wedge lintel, and tall loft opening above.

Attached to the rear is a long single storey cow-house range, also of roughly dressed stone, with corrugated sheet roof. Heightened roof pitch to rear. Its long west elevation faces onto a fold yard and has doorways at either end and centre, with windows and vent slits between them. Single opening in gable end, towards rear, perhaps originally to feeding passage.


Stable retains traces of partitions. Bolted A-frame truss and torching to slates. Notwithstanding presence of chimney, the building retains no visible trace of a fireplace.
