At the right hand end of the south-east front, an adjunct to the mian timber-framed strucutre comprises Burles Cottage wichi projects forward to the south-east. This is also of timber-framed construction above a brick sill. On the oppisite side of Burles Cottage, facing towards the north-east, there are 2 window bays and a 6-panelled door.
Along the entrance of the Burles (facing north-west) the rood descends to a much lover level except at the left hand end.

Small mullioned casement windows with leaded lights. Steps lead down to round-headed 6-panelled cellar door. From here to the south-west end of the building, the roof descends much lower; low wall-plate of post-and-pen timbering with continuous leaded lights below eaves; 4-centred headed doorway flanked to wither side by 2-light leaded casements; projection with one tall transomed and mullioned window which projects high into roof space; to right hand again, a further gabled projection to which is attached a very tall panelled chinmey; one other small gable to right hand again, and, at south-western end, a further window bay.
