Small building in Gothick style standing on the pond edge. Of lime-plastered stone, limewashed formerly in ochre colours now in white; slate roof part artificial with wide boarded scalloped-edged eaves forming a canopy; stone plinth in the form of a step. All openings, which are recessed, are now blocked but comprise a centre right arched doorway, arched window to right, second arched doorway to left in stepped back bay and further arched window end left. Gable end to downstream side has a yellow brick boarded opening below a higher blocked opening. Extending downstream are low brick and stone sheds and pens.
Listed as an interesting and unusual Gothick building relating to the important park landscape in particular the series of interlinking ponds. Group value with the house.
