Early C19 single-storey cob-walled cottage with stone front. Thatched roof under tin. Shown on the 1846 Tithe Map as being on the Crofftybeudy farm, probably a farmworker's cottage.
Whitewashed rubble stone front with cob rear and end wall. Corrugated iron roof over thatch and brick left end stack. Double fronted, offset to right with 4-pane casement each side of part-glazed door, all with timber lintels, and probably later C19 replacements. Rear is all cob above rubble plinth. Two small windows.
Much smoke-blackened double-purlin roof with thin collar trusses and thin vertically-laid branches under gorse underthatch.
A scarce example of a cob cottage of regional type, refronted in stone here but retaining its character.
