Description: Local roughly coursed stone with graded slate roof, and brick axial stack. 2 storeyed, comprising a pair of small 2-unit cottages, with a single rear wing. Each has a central entrance, the simple timber porches later additions cutting the hood-mould over the ledged doorway. Flaking windows on each floor are 2-light iron small-paned casements with drop-ended hood moulds to ground floor, and timber lintels below the eaves above.
Part of a group of model cottages which represents an excellent example of a small estate settlement retaining much of its original character.
