The south range comprises cob cider house with apple store to right of stone store and granary. An external flight of granite steps lead to the granary door which is flanked by mullion-and-transom windows (one glazed). An unglazed 3-light mullion window serves store below and door is in left gable end. The cider house has a wide entrance to ground floor with windows to right and above. Apple store access by an external flight of stone steps to rear and rear of granary are a row of 3 granite walled pigstys under lean-to roof of corrugated iron. Each has wooden front with door and iron fittings. Granary and part-floored cider house carried on massive crossbeams. King-post roofs throughout. A remarkably complete C19 farmyard.
