Cider House and cellar. Later used as a calf shed. A 3-bay cider house to the north of the threshing barn, with an apple loft. The loft door to the front rises through the roof to a gable end. Adjacent to it, to the north, there is an unlofted single bay, which was once a cellar. It is separated from the cider house by a brick partition wall. Chert, brick dressings; cob walls. Cob in the back wall and gable end. Slate roof. King post. Roof structure is identical to threshing barn. Door/s; loading hatch; timber window/s. Door to front, with timber- framed window (glass is missing) to left with loft hatch above rising through roof to a gable end. The loft hatch has a plank door in a solid, pegged frame. There is an inserted, timber- framed window to the rear. The cellar has a door with the remains of a solid, pegged frame. It has a 2-flap door held on strap hinges with pointed finials. There is a window with a galvanised metal frame in the north gable end. To the rear of the cellar there is an opening with a 20th century plank door and a built up threshold. Originally, it appears to have been a tall window opening. Apple loft; fixed ladder. The loft floor is supported on upended cross joists on timber laces. There is a trimmer and a gap to the rear for the cider press and a fixed ladder to the loft by the door. Currently used as a cow house.
