Rubble with freestone dressings, Cotswold stone roofs with coped verges, irregular chimneys, some (now) dummy. Courtyard plan with hall to road and two-storey flanking projecting wings, the right-hand one noticeably at an angle. Mullioned windows with labels.

Inside: hall with spere truss, restored screen and four-bay roof structure, moulded timbers, arch braced trusses, two minor and central principal, apparently a raised cruck, two rows of windbraces; Tudor arched doorway at north-west end, a further similar door to first floor above (? stairs).
