Two houses. Probably C17, remodelled early C19. Ashlar and stucco on stone, with hipped slate roofs. Aldington Court attached to north side of the Manor House. The Manor House: in a Greco-Cubic style. U-plan, with stacks on side walls. West front: two storeys, 2 + 1 + 2 windows, wings have plain pilasters; 16-pane sash to centre, others are glazing bar sashes.

The entrance has a portico filling the recess, with Doric columns, parapet and ball finial; overlight over a four-panel door flanked by two fixed case- ments. Aldington Court: lobby-entrance against central stack. Two storeys, boarded eaves; three windows: glazing bar sashes. To left on ground floor, a 4-light casement in moulded wooden frame, a 16-pane sash to the right; porch has a gabled treated as an open pediment, with plain pilasters below; plain fanlight over C20 panelled door. Stonework exposed on left-hand (north) return front. Aldington Court seems to have become the service wing of the Manor House after the latter was built.
