Built in the mid-C19 as a field cowhouse, probably originally associated with the roughly contemporary farmhouse at Blaen-y-nant (not included on this list). The cowhouse is a good example of a once common regional farmbuilding type, the detached cowhouse standing on its own in fields.
Rectangular plan, aligned roughly north-south. Roughly coursed rubblestone; slate roof with coped verges. Eastern (entrance) side has 3 evenly-spaced doors and small window to left; boarded hatch to hayloft in south gable end.
Interior not inspected at time of Survey.
Listed as a well-preserved example of a mid-C19 field cowhouse, a characteristic farmbuilding type of the region and period, which forms a distinctive feature in the landscape.
