The single range at Cuckford is a late 18th-early 19th century bank barn comprising a threshing barn over a cider house and cellar, with a stable and hayloft at the north end. It has been altered and repaired in the later 19th and 20th centuries. Single range. There is one main range comprising a barn, stables and hayloft, cider house and cellar, to the south of the farmhouse. The tithe map shows a stockyard to the east of the surviving range, with an irregular, roughly L-shaped range. This had disappeared by the late 19th century. To the north of the farmhouse there are three pigsties, and bordering the lane approaching the farm, a cartshed, both of which are later in date than the main range. Part historic farmyard surface. Partly cobbled.
