Late C16-early C17 range: ashlar plinth and square-panelled timber
framing, now pebble-dashed; projecting ashlar stacks; stone slate
roofing. Dairy/kitchen extension: limestone rubble with pantile
roof and a C20 artificial stone stack. Rectangular plan to the
early range with the slightly lower range added to the north gable
end to form an 'L'-shaped plan. Long rectangular dairy range at
the south west corner and parallel to the early range. Early
ranges 2 storeys with cellar under the timber-framed part.
Dairy/kitchen range: l½ storeys. West front of early range: 3-
light C19 casement with transom and keystone, similar window above;
fielded 6-panel door to the right. Single-light casement with a
flat-chamfered surround to the gable end. Pebble-dashed range
projects forwards to the right: small plank door to cellar within
the limestone plinth at the gable end; tripartite sashes to the
ground and first floors above, similar tripartite sash to the
ground floor of the left-hand return with 2-light stone-mullioned

room, formerly with wooden spiral staircase rising to the right,
now blocked off. Exposed square-panelled timber framing visible
within the adjoining range. Panelled room with wooden frieze
decorated with ornate strapwork; moulded cornice above. Over the
fireplace the frieze is decorated with heraldic emblems in bold
relief, possibly associated with the Guise family: two-headed bird
at the centre, flanked by pairs of animals, probably a lion and a
fox together with further unidentifiable heraldic motifs and
flowers. Open fireplace with deep stone lintel and flat-chamfered
surround in the adjoining room; two similar smaller fireplaces in
upstairs rooms. Large open fireplace with bressumer and bread oven
within the kitchen/dairy range. Queen post roof over stone-built
early range suggests it may have been re-roofed. during the C18.
