A remote farmhouse probably C17 with C18 alterations. The walls are of thin coursed rubble stone. The roof was of stone tiles but has been temporarily replaced with metal sheet. The building is unoccupied and in need of comprehensive repair. A programme of urgent works, including repair of the temporary roof and rebuilding of fallen masonry, has improved its condition but the chimney stacks are deteriorating and further long term repairs are necessary.
