A planned, mid-19th century farm, which was built to replace a set of earlier farm buildings which are shown on the Tithe map and which have not survived. The later buildings have been adapted in the 20th century. Planned courtyard. The farmhouse stands on a plinth on high ground at the top of the yard, to the west. The yard slopes away from the house, with two ranges built down the slope. The south ranges comprises a stable, threshing barn and cart shed and the north range, a shippon, calves' house and piggeries. The cider house, with an apple loft, later a granary, above, is the north end of the farmhouse. Modern farmyard surface.
