A small farmstead which has undergone considerable adaptation in the 19th century and late 20th century, and is not easy to interpret. The earliest farm building, a cider house with an apple loft above, possibly dates from the 18th century. Built on steeply sloping site, close to stream. 3 sided yard. A small yard, terraced into a hillslope, with two parallel ranges comprising a cider house, cellar, apple loft and granary and an attached cattleshed to the south, and an open-fronted cattleshed with a bull pen to the north side. The farmhouse forms the third side. The south range backs onto the road. Originally, there was a dairy attached to the house at its north end, but it no longer exists. Tiny sloping yard. Farmhouse forms west side of yard. Modern concrete farmyard surface.
