History

The farm was established in the C17 or earlier, and bears a mid C17 datestone on the rear wing. The present building dates from the last extensive remodelling which apparently took place in c1850-60.

Exterior

Built of regularly coursed local rubble stone, with slate roofs with wide eaves. It is of 'T'-plan, consisting of a 2-storey with cellar 3 window bay double-pile front block, and an approximately symmetrical rear wing with some lean-to additions. Central entrance, set in a rendered and lined gabled porch, open at the front, and a part-glazed door with leaded overlight. To either side on the ground floor, tall 8-paned horned sash windows in openings with stone lintels, and three 16-paned sash windows without horns to the first floor. Outbuilding attached to the left gable end. The 2-bay rear wing is of 2 storeys, with doors in the angles.

Interior

Not accessible at the time of inspection.
