Situated on highest point of valley slope. A small farmstead, with a good 18th century threshing barn and cider house range (still with cider press). The 18th century threshing barn range is attached to the farmhouse, with the cider house at the south end. A mid-late 19th century pigsty is built up against the rear of the cider house. A range of cow sheds, now in ruins, is southwest of the house. They feature on the tithe map. The tithe map also shows a long building to the west of the farmhouse which no longer survives. There is a mid- late 19th century cart shed to the south. To the north east of the house is a large Dutch Barn, built in 1949. There are some apple trees remaining from the original cider orchards. The threshing barn is attached to the farmhouse.
