H-plan; main range of three framed bays aligned east/west with single-bay north-east wing. Main range has large chimney in its west bay and wing has external chimney on its east side. During the early Cl7 a cross-wing of two framed bays was added at the west end which has an external rubble chimney with off- sets and a brick stack on its west side. Between the wings, on the north side, a lean-to porch with a catslide roof was also added at this time. Two storeys. Framing: two rows of square panels per storey. C16 wing has a north end collar and tie-beam truss with four struts and a V-strut in the apex.

There is a weather- boarded lean-to addition with a catslide roof on the east side enclosing the external east chimney. Also adjoining the east end of the main range is a timber-framed wing of two bays with a doorway in its north front elevation. Interior: main range noted as having retained most of its internal framing and also has a large fireplace in the west bay. The two- bay east wing has a central upper open cruck truss with an upper king strut above the collar. The cruck blades are very slender and elbowed. (RCHM, Herefs, Vol III, p 57; BoE, p 128).
