Late C16 cottage, extended in C17 and C20. Timber-framed, walls plastered and weatherboarded, roof tiled. The original cottage is of 2 bays aligned E-W, with a contemporary chimney stack at the W end. One bay was added to the W of the stack in the early C17. Several extensions were added to the S and E in the C20, with 2 extra chimneys. Single storey with attics. The N elevation is plastered with a weatherboarded dado, and has 4 C20 casement windows and another in a gabled dormer. A C20 rustic porch projects at the W end, a small C20 brick extension and chimney at the E end. The roof is half- hipped both ends. Jowled storey posts, cambered tiebeams. The wall framing is partly- exposed internally, with curved tension braces trenched to the inside of the studs in the C16 part, heavy primary straight bracing in the C17 bay. Stop-chamfered ceiling beam in middle bay. The roof is of collar- rafter construction, with ties which indicate that it has been thatched. A catslide dormer in the S pitch of the middle bay is probably original.
