Main entrance to right of the northern bay has a C20 gabled rubble porch with a square-headed archway and 4-light windows in the side elevations. The doorway has a 4-centred arched head, a hoodmould, and a C17 studded door with strap hinges. There is a c1930 addition to the rear of the north end elevation and a large two-storey seven- bay wing to the rear of the southern two bays of C19 date with later additions.
