A planned early 19th century farmstead, which is relatively complete, with a superior east range finished with good ribbon pointing. Planned courtyard. The yard has an impressive east range, comprising a stable, threshing barn and cider house to the east of the farmhouse. To the north of the house, there is a small stockyard, enclosed on three sides by a linhay to the north a shippon to the east and an open-fronted cattleshed to the west. The rear of the farmhouse forms the south side, with a way through to the east. In the mid-19th century an L-shaped range of cattlesheds, of which only a small part of the north side remains, created a second yard, to the east of the original stockyard. Part historic farmyard surface of cobbles and concrete.
