Two storeys, two windows, with exposed frames and glazing bars, at each floor. Roughly coursed stonework with rendered bands, parapet etc. The Toll House and Taddiport Bridge form a group.

Tollhouse was presumably also used in connection with Rolle Road, which was opened as a toll road in 1875.

At the south end of Great Torrington on the north-east corner of the bridge to Taddiport. A square two storey building opposite the entrance to the dairy, this is a very good example of a bridge tollhouse.
