Asymmetrical 3-window front with a gabled cross wing at the right-hand end and a 2-storey gabled porch on the front at the left. The porch has a chamfered arched stopped stone doorway below a 2-light casement, 6-panes per light. The crosswing has ornamental slate-hanging in the gable carried out over a moulded bressumer above a first floor 4-light casement, 8-panes per light, and an ornamental slate-hung pentice carried out over a moulded bressumer above the ground floor casement, 5-light 8-panes per light. The rest of the range is whitewashed and rendered to the ground floor and slate-hung above with a moulded bressumer between. There is a later C20 additon at the left end. Sabine Baring-Gould was both squire and parson of Lew Trenchard from 1881 until his death in 1924. He was a High Churchman, antiquarian and prolific author of fiction and theological works. In An Old English Home he devoted a chapter to the history of the village inn and its benefits for village society. Sabine Baring-Gould, An Old English Home (1898).
