Stone rubble with granite dressings and slate roof with gabled ends. The C15 hall faces east with a lateral stack rising from the front wall with set-offs and a moulded granite cap. To right large 4-light hall window with elliptically arched lights, hollow chamfered and with roll-moulded King Mullion and hood mould with carved stops. Set back to left of stack a tall 2-light window with roll-moulded elliptically arched lights and hood mould with carved stops. Similar window to gallery over screens passage doorway on left with moulded elliptical arch outer arch with hood mould and four-centred inner arch with carved spandrels and tympanum with armorial device. The hall is encased on north, south and west sides in a late C19 gothic style gabled house of 2-storeys with stone mullion windows and a 3-storeyed tower with a pyramidal roof, in an angle over the entrance porch which has a chamfered Tudor arch. The service wing of the late C19 house, to the west, has been demolished. Interior of hall: roof appears to have been rebuilt but reusing carved arch braces and wall plate and carved bosses to intersecting wind bracing. The screen passage has gallery over, which is jettied into hall on carved bressuner. The screen is made up of reused timber with carved running foliage. The joists supporting the gallery over the screens passage are similarly carved.
