The hall has an open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel and granite jamb. Wood newel stairs to the rear of the hall. Leading from the passage to the lower room is a chamfered C17 door frame whose lintel is chamfered as if for 2 openings - possibly it has been re- used. Roof: over the inner room is a plastered principal rafter with curved foot. Difficulty of access to the loft here however prevented a full examination to ascertain if it was a medieval truss or not. Otherwise the roof timbers have been replaced by insubstantial trusses resting on the wall-plates.
