The main house is plastered local stone rubble and flint, maybe with some cob; stone rubble and brick stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; thatch roof. The extension is faced up with local stone rubble and has a slate roof. Plan: 2-room plan cottage facing south-east. Central entrance into the larger right (north-east) room. The end stack here is a C20 insertion and the room was made this size by removing the partitions which originally divided it up into a through-passage and 2 small service rooms. The left room has an original gable-end stack. 2-room plan service on the left (south-west) end. The main house is 2 storeys, the extension is a single storey. Exterior: the main house has 2 nearly symmetrical 2-window front of late C19 -early C20 casements containing rectangular panes of leaded glass. The central doorway from the former passage contains a C20 door. The rear doorway has a C20 porch. The main roof is half-hipped to right and hipped to left. Interior: the right room has C20 carpentry detail. The left room however has original features. The fireplace here has an oak-framed front and contains an oven. The fireplace lintel and crossbeam here are both chamfered with scroll stops. The roof was not inspected although the bases of straight principals show on the first floor; these are from probably original A-frame trusses. Coxes Villa is one of a group of attractive listed houses that make up the hamlet of Farway.
