Whilst refurbished in the nineteenth century, this two-storey, whitewashed rubble stone farmhouse has probable early eighteenth century origins. It has a Welsh slate roof with four corniced brick ridges and end stacks . There are two wings, the narrower downhill and set back at each elevation. The main frontage faces the garden and this has a three-window range of sashes to the left main unit: two to the left (plus one smaller to ground floor) and one to the right of a gabled porch which is of rock-faced stone with brick dressings, including moulded brick cambered arch, flag floor and boarded door. The main range also has a rear single storey lean-to with small windows and doorway in return. The former farm ranges on the other side of the lane, shown on the Tithe Map of 1842, are now converted to dwellings.
It is listed as a pre-1840 farmhouse which has retained its character.

Additional: The core of Lidmore Farmhouse is a three-unit house of lobby-entry type with the central hall set between outer kitchen and inner parlour. The dating and development of the range is not clear. The listing does not provide a description of the interior; plans show a stair projection alongside the hall fireplace partly incorporated within a rear service lean-to. The partition wall between hall and inner-room has been removed. RFS/RCAHMW/11/11/2009
