The barn is the oldest building on the farmstead. It was built as a corn barn in c1820 and was converted into an implement shed and machine floor in c1890. This was when the farm went over from arable to dairy and the loft, calf pens and pigsties date from then. The farm remained tenanted until the 1980s, and became an exhibit of the Museum of Welsh Life in 1989. It is furnished and displayed as a very complete Vale of Glamorgan farmstead of the 1930s.
