Slobbered rubble facade possibly facing cob, asbestos slate roofs, boxed eaves, large roughcast stack right gable end, C20 rebuilt brick stack between first and second bays left.

Two storeys, 1:2:1 bays, irregular fenestration late C19 and C20, wood and metal casements, ground floor 2 segmental headed window openings, left of entrance, one to right, plank door, end bay unlit.
