Cider House. Later used as a pig sty. A gable-ended, partially-lofted building, with a 2-bay dairy at its west end, positioned to the front of the service end of the farmhouse and accessible from the wash house. It was originally a cider house, but was later used to house pigs. Rubble stone, brick dressed walls. Corrugated iron roof. A-frame. 3-bays. A-frames on cross pads, with notched mortise and tenon apexes, held with single pegs. The original lap-jointed collars and ridge have been removed and there is a replacement double ridge. Door/s; metal framed windows/s. A 2-flap plank door in a solid, pegged frame to the south front. To the rear (north) two window openings with 20th century tilting metal casements. To the west of the rear wall, a good 18th century oak, plank and ledge door in a plain, pegged frame, held on strap hinges with a teardrop finials. It has a timber latch and a lock box. The door leads into the cider house from the wash house at the service end of the farmhouse. Hayloft. The 2 east bays are lofted and the remaining bay is unlofted. The loft is carried on three hefty crossbeams. Currently disused. Last used for pigs.
