Department of Environment, 1985, Crediton Hamlets, 82 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV38635.

Farmhouse, 17th century with possibly earlier core, modernised and extended in mid-late 19th century. Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone stacks with 19th century brick shafts; thatched roof. Plastered rubble and brick rear block with slate roof. South-east facing main block has altered three-room-and-through-passage plan with inner room at north-east end (right of front), outshots to rear and 19th century block behind inner room. Projecting lateral stack to rear of hall and gable-end stacks to inner and service rooms. Full height cob internal partitions at upper end of hall and on lower side of through passage. In 19th century new front door inserted to new entrance hall and stairs built in upper end of hall. Two storeys, throughout. Regular six window front of 19th century three light casements, with glazing bars. Plank door to original passage left of centre superceded in 19th century by six panel front door with overlight. Both doors have flat hoods on shaped consoles. Interior is largely result of 19th century modernisation but original layout is preserved suggesting that much of early fabric and detail is hidden. Seventeenth century oak door frame to rear of passage has ovolo-moulded surround and contains contemporary 12 panel door with iron fittings including strap hinges with fleur de lys terminals and oak lock housing. Hall has volcanic ashlar fireplace with replacement oak lintel and ogee-hollow chamfer moulded crossbeams with scroll stops. Seventeenth century oak A-frame roof intact.
