Seven 2-light upper floor casements, all with leaded casements. East front: 2 moulded parapet gables to left. Mixed fenestration, canted bay window to ground floor, left of Tudor arched doorway in mullioned and transomed screen. Various other 2, 3 and 2 + 2-light casements, all C20 restored. West side: 2 gables, right to end of main range with slit at base reputedly providing means to pass food to priests' holes in cellar below this part of building.

Early C19 court room addition to end of east front with hipped roof and two 12-pane sashes with hoodmoulds. Interior: round arched Norman doorway to dining room with chevron order and jamb shafts, was repositioned in 1926 alterations. Fine plasterwork frieze by Jewson depicts Cotswold animals and leaf patterns (c.f. similar work at Cotswold Farm, Duntisbourne Abbots CP). Drawing room contains mid C18 marble fireplace moved from Lechlade Manor. Other rooms have C17 panelling, not in original positions. South west corner of house appears to be C12 in origin with set of later priests' holes in cellar. Underground passage (now closed off) leads from cellar to church chancel. (N.M.
