Shooting box, now farmhouse. c.1830s, on site of and incorporating part of a demolished C17 house. Squared sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings; low- pitched hipped slate roofs with wide eaves. Roughly T-plan facing South, with 2 extensions to West, one (to South-West) being a C17 survival, the other (to North-West, from the stem of the T) being a long kitchen range. Informal front. Two storeys, cellar and attic, lit from rear; 2:3 windows, glazing bar sashes,the 2 left-hand ones in a hipped break, blank to 1st floor right; stuccoed portico in angle with fluted Doric columns in antis, arched doorway with plain fanlight and panelled door. Mipped bay window to right hand return and lower possibly late C18 rear range with arched stair window at join Set-back to left of front is a significant survival of the earlier house - a single-storey-and-attic cottage (?one-time kitchen wing) now stone-clad and with 2 gabled half-dormers and Gothick glazing and doorway to front; 3-light wood-mullioned ovolo-moulded window (no glass grooves) survives to rear. Inside are 2 pairs of upper crucks formerly with a collar purlin, evidence of former newel stair to right of large fire-place, evidence also that the masonry is a secondary cladding; heavy cross-beam and chamfered joists; the ground rises steeply to West and there is a gable entry to first floor. Attached to South- West corner of this survival is a short stretch of retaining wall about 10 yards long and about 14 feet high to base with bee-boles on its North-West side. Broad terrace in front of house to lend air of gentility. Site of one-time Headquarters of Jesuit Mission in South Tales established by 1600 and by 1622 of the clandestine Jesuit Province; in 1678, as a result of the Titus Oates Plot, raided and disbanded by the Bishop of Hereford.
