Small square building designed as a mock castle with disproportionately large round turret at each corner. One storey. Front has 2 large square-headed windows with chamfered surrounds and hoodmoulds; 2-light mullioned and transomed wood casements, probably not original. Left side wall, facing the park gates (qv), has 2 similar windows, but with original wood glazing; chamfered mullions and transoms, upper lights have flattened, trefoiled arches. One window in rear wall with wood casement like those at the front; no hoodmould. Right side wall obscured by C20 concrete block addtion. Doorway in angle-turret to left has chamfered surround and hoodmould; curved plank door with ornate strap-hinges. The other 3 turrets have exaggeratedly tall slits, those in the 2 turrets nearest the doorway with loops top and bottom. All 4 fronts and the turrets are finished with a moulded string course and crenellated parapet. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: in the forecourt of the building is a large sundial made of a single piece of slate with the centre missing; incised with the name BARNSTAPLE.
