Way farm depicted on the Tithe Map, 619 on the Lustleigh Apportionment: 'Farm house etc.' The farm is laid out with four buildings set around the edges of a roughly triangular-shaped yard.

Orchards bound the farm to the north and north-west, while a garden and a meadow lie to the south and south-west. To the west is a further courtyard leading to a potato plot (623 on the map).
