The house at Barton Farm comprises two ranges of two storeys at right angles with slate roofs. The southern part of the building is shown on the 1840 Tithe Map & the northern part was probably demolished between 1887 & 1904.The range aligned east to west has a central porch on the south façade & has the character of an estate farmhouse. Long low & narrow wings extend to the east which seem to be shown on the 1887 map. The northern part of the northern range appears to have been a dairy containing slate shelves.
