Dry Delabole and scantle slate roofs with gables except at corners. One serpentine ashlar chimney. Overall U-shaped plan on 3 sides of a courtyard and with a gateway on the fourth side. West range has tall 2-stage square clocktower adjoining at right (north) and 2 slightly projecting cross wings with room over adjoining clocktower and left (south) of middle. South range has courtyard front (north) on granite piers, originally open, but infilled C20 between piers. East range is similar but courtyard front (west) is supported on iron stanchions. Section of wall and gateway enclose the fourth (north) side. Single storey. West range east front of 1:1:2:1 bays plus clocktower built forward on right. Second from left and right bay is principal wide coach entrance with elliptical arched doorway, small window to gable of reduced width over (further gable rear with chimney). Further doorways to left and right-hand bays and to south wall of tower, otherwise windows. C20 doors and glazing. The tower has small latticed windows to lower part of upper stack and square blind opening above except to east which has original clock face. Embattled parapet with louvred spire over middle of tower. Interior not inspected. The clocktower, it has been suggested, was possibly built in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's, 50th year as Monarch, and one of a number of Jubilee towers built at this time. These buildings are part of a substantial planned C19 group relating to Bochym Manor House qv.
