The monument includes a Prehistoric unenclosed stone hut circle settlement and enclosure, and a Medieval farmstead lying within part of the Rippon Tor coaxial field system situated to the south west of Holwell Tor on Haytor Down. The unenclosed stone hut circle settlement includes up to three stone hut circles which are connected to rectangular enclosures which form part of the Rippon Tor coaxial field system by a series of banks. The huts vary in size internally from 6.3 metres to 7.4 metres in diameter and are defined by rubble built walls measuring up to 1.3 metres wide and 0.7 metres high.

Hut circles at Holwell Tor. The site consists of two attached rectangular enclosures, which judging by their alignment may represent remodelling of earlier reaves, although no other association with the reaves survives. The hut circle at SX 7484 7747 has walls 0.5 metres high. It is attached to east end of an east to west wall with a level floor and internal diameter of 6 metres. Sections of the inner kerb visible with a possible entrance on the south-west side.
