Small manor house, now restaurant and country club. c1700, altered C20. Coursed sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings and slate roof. L-plan formed by 3-unit front range with rear wing. 2 storeys and 5 bays, symmetrical, with raised quoins, and bands above the windows on both floors. The central doorway, up 4 steps, has a shouldered architrave with pulvinated frieze and broken pediment, plus 10-panel door with overlight. All windows on both floors have moulded architraves. Those at ground floor to the right are taller, all the ground-floor sashes have 8 large panes, while those above have 18 small panes. The roof has 2 small skylights in each slope, gable copings, and gable chimneys, and a 3rd chimney rises from the rear wall. Rear: wing at south end, with a large single-storey lean-to in the angle. At 1st-floor of main range, 2 windows like those at the front, and a small window between them. Doorway at junction of side wall of lean-to, and a small square window in each wall. The re-entrant of the wing has remains of former windows in vertical alignment close to the junction. The rear gable of the wing has staggered stair windows on 4 levels, all recessed cross-windows except the 3rd, which is sashed, and a 2-light mullioned attic window. The wing has a ridge chimney. INTERIOR: some partition walls removed, but parlour in front left room is fully panelled: raised and fielded panels, with pilasters, pulvinated frieze, and moulded cornice; a cross-corner fireplace with bolection-moulded surround; and a secret cupboard in the panelling on the opposite wall. The former kitchen to the rear at the same end has 3 large roughly-shaped beams, and a large segmental-arched stone inglenook fireplace with bolection-moulded surround. The staircase in the wing is doglegged to the full height, has a closed string, slim turned balusters, and moulded handrail, and is contained by a timber-framed partition wall.
