The Gardener's Cottage is 3 x 1 bay with 2 storeys and a mono-pitched roof. The elevations are symmetrical, the outer one having a central door with plain stone surround, a 2-light chamfered mullion window on either side and 3 small casement above. The gables are coped with kneelers and the ridge has a stone cornice coping.
