Dated 1677, it makes an L-plan with the barn and is built of stone with a corrugated asbestos roof. It is of one storey with a loft and has a stout doorframe facing N inscribed "1677 WG" on the timber lintel. There are other old/original timber-lintelled openings facing N. Within, the roof is original, with tiebeams and diagonal struts to the principal rafters.
The cowshed is an early farm building and of special interest for bearing a date and initials. It is included for group value with Lower Maestorglwydd Farmhouse.
