Full description

The Tithe Map shows 'Holewill', comprising three main buildings roughly in a line. The central building looks most likely to have been a dwelling, (278 on apportionment; 'Houses, gardens and court').

Three more buildings have been added to the farmstead to the south-west of the original buildings; the largest of these is the farmhouse.
