An odd two-level tollhouse, the upper storey is level with the steeply climbing A379 road from Shaldon to Torquay, the lower storey with the B3195 Newton Abbot road, the house lying in the fork of the two roads. Probably built around 1828, when the Torquay trustees built the Shaldon-Torquay road, although it may have been adapted for use as a tollhouse at that time.
