Stone slate roof with ashlar stacks. 'L'-shaped C17 main body. South wing added c1929. The north wing (built c1929) to the right of the main body was originally a range of farmbuildings including a barn (now converted) and forms a linear range projecting forwards from the entrance front and continuing back rear right. Mostly 2 storeys and attic. Facade; gable at centre of the entrance front, later C17 range to the left. Gable of early C20 south wing projects forwards to the left. Converted barn projects forwards to the right. Original single- light, 3 and 4-light stone-mullioned casements, with stopped hoods to the mid-late C17 ranges; king-mullions to the 4-light casements. C20 stone-mullioned casements to the north and south ranges. All windows with leaded panes, most with stopped hoods. Early C20 plank door with studded fillets with a roll-moulded 4- centred arched surround set off-centre right in the gable. Garden front cross-gabled west wing of the C17 range projects forwards at the centre. Small 2-storey turret with a pyramidal roof in the angle between the main body and the north range. Three-bay open- fronted store with rubble-built cylindrical columns to the right- hand return northern range. Varying rooflines throughout. Axial and gable-end stacks with moulded cappings and skirtings. One triple diagonally set lateral stack to the south range. Saddleback coping to the gables, kneelers and pierced pointed finials to the main body and the south range. Lead guttering probably dating from the early C20 restoration. Some rainwater heads decorated with either a single leaping fish or a castellated tower. Rainwater head with the initials 'M. H. M.' (Marling) on the garden front. Interior restored in 1929.

Several probably original flat-chamfered basket-headed stone fireplace surrounds in bedrooms. One small Tudor-arched fireplace with a roll moulded surround. Small area of C17 wall painting (cl.5m x lm) in an upstairs bedroom. The painting is intended to imitate wood panelling and has a yellow background onto which is painted the outline of 4 panels with a lozenge at the centre of each, imitation wooden peg fixings at the junction of the rails and stiles. Painted nulling forms a frieze at the top of the painted panelling which was probably once more extensive. Staircase early C20. (V.C.H. Vol VI, p 99)
