Stone slates (from the Forest of Dean) laid in diminishing courses with the ridge following the segmental plan of tie house and half-hipped ends on the radius. Dressed stone chimneys over the front wall. Plan: segment of a circle, 1 room deep, completing the outer part of a circular courtyard in front (west) of Porth-en-Alls, qv. Built into bedrock at the rear (west) and with rooms radiating on the ground floor. Central doorway to basement steps leading up to ground floor rear passage giving access to all the rooms. Dining room right of the passage, kitchen far right with WC in front; reception room left of the entrance and principal bedroom probably originally the reception room far left.

The ground floor walls are set back slightly on either side of the turret and the windows adjoin on either side filling the spaces between the turret and the 2 lateral chimneys. The thicker basement (retaining) wall has slate (like the roof) weathering. Under the hip at each end is a wide window. All the windows are original wooden casements with glazing bars. Interior : virtually unaltered since built with original carpentry and joinery with the structural elements freely exposed.
