Plank door in moulded surround with hood on brackets. Lean-to on north-west angle linking to single storey outbuilding, 'The Cottage'. Attached at east end is wing, running north, of 2 parallel ranges, apparently a C17 'L'-plan house with paired barn ranges to north. West front has half-hipped cross-wing in angle, ovolo-moulded windows and dripcourses, irregular spacing, and then cart-entry with 6-pane window over and roof hipped to south and continued to north to hipped north gable.

South end wall has upper 3-light window and hood, lower C20 mullion-and-transom window. House was part of a holding belonging to Snelling family in C16, sold 1678 to E. Bayley who may have rebuilt it, and later owned by Bennett and Dickinson families. Late C17 illustration on estate map shows north front broadly similar but with 4 dormer gables to second floor. (il.
