5 coastguard cottages. Mid/late C19. Coursed red sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings, continuous slate roof with brick stacks to party walls. Double-depth plans. Tudor Gothic style.

Each cottage has a forward-facing gable over a 3-light casement window with stone mullions; similar but larger windows to the ground floor under a continuous string course. The terminating cottages have single-storey canted bays with hipped roofs and doors in flanking lean-tos; the central cottages have hood moulds and Tudor arches over planked doors with strap hinges. INTERIORS not inspected. Complete and attractive examples of their type.
