The coach house was built in 1857, designed in the office of George Gilbert Scott, for Thomas James Agar ; the screen walls with gateways and the retaining walls to the service yard were probably added in 1882 after the fire at Lanhydrock House, probably built by Richard Coad. The coach house is in granite ashlar ; slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends, which have raised coped verges with scrolled kneelers. The screen walls are in granite ashlar. The retaining walls are in stone rubble with granite dressings. Plan: The coach house is a rectangular building, symmetrical, with 2 carriage entrances facing the service yard and with a loft over ; canted bay to rear. The screen wall is between the coach house and Lanhydrock House, with 2 gateways, the wall forming an L-plan with a gateway in each range. On the other side of the coach house is a further wall with gateway into the service yard, ad the retaining walls are attached to this, enclosing the service yard along the south and west sides. The coach house is a symmetrical 2-storey front ; central pair of carriage entrances with segmental arches, gable over with scrolled kneelers, loading door and clock. To each side of the carriage doors, a single door and mullion and transom window. Left end has chamfered granite mullion and transom window, string course and breather above.

At the rear, central canted bay, with mullion and transom window to front, external stack to the side ; 3 ventilation slits to right and left. Embattled parapet along the whole of the rear.

Two tall gateways, each with rounded arch, roll-moulded with hood mould and string course. Both have large panelled studded doors. Attached to the south end of the coach house is a low embattled wall, with a gateway with pair of sqaure granite piers with plinth and cornice, obelisks with ball finials. Pedestrian gateway at the side ; both gateways with C20 wooden gates.
