site and two-storeyed at rear (north). Built around three sides of a small courtyard
to the south. The east wing has a slate hung clock tower with hipped roof and
finial. Hipped louvred dormers have finials. The larger west wing contains the
groom's house. The central section has a chamfered segmentally arched carriageway at
the centre with two coach house doorways either side with flat granite arches and
