Mainly thatch, with prominent, partly external lateral stacks,constructed mostly in ashlar stone and flint, one of which is chequered, a feature only occasionally seen elsewhere in this part of Devon.
Although some have been altered, there is some very good detailing. An outstanding survival, unrivalled elsewhere in east Devon. Other details: Photos.
