In the porch the original staircase with short knopped balusters, probably restored or reset in C19. The 3-bay C17 house with 2 fine fireplaces and staircase- porch was almost completely rebuilt in the C19, the high ceilings to ground and first floors suggesting replacement of all interior timberwork. The rear range contains a kitchen and dairy with service rooms above, probably occupied by the tennants while the Dawsons, whose main house was probably at Langcliffe, used the main range for shooting parties and summer accommodation.
