The 19th century barns and linhay are considered to be in fair condition but vulnerable (B.A.R. 3.2.4).

The farm buildings are well constructed from locally quarried limestone. The medieval face pegged jointed cruck truss in the shippon and the 18th century open -fronted cart shed with limestone cylindrical piers, are important survivals. Evolved courtyard. Loose courtyard, with farmhouse to west, and shippon, with medieval two bays to west end, to north. L-shaped south east corner formed by an 18th century threshing barn and the rear of a long, 18th century open-fronted cart shed. There is a small early 19th century cattleshed at the east end of the cart shed.
