Random rubble limestone, mostly roughcast rendered; ashlar chimneys; stone slate roof. Two-storey with attic; L- plan with east cross wing. North front: earliest part is centre of north front, two sets of diagonal ridge-mounted chimney shafts indicating the original ends. Parapets to elevation with central parapet gabled 2-storey porch having tall ashlar pilaster corner buttresses topped by ball finials. Moulded round arched doorway beneath entablature with flanking Tuscan pilasters; imposts and keystone. Cornice above entablature rises over armorial shield. Three-light cavetto mullioned casement above with hoodmould continuous between buttresses. Ground floor cross-window to left of porch, 6-light wide mullioned and transomed casement to right. Upper floor 2 + 2-light to left, 3 + 3-light to right, all with hoodmoulds. Projecting gable end of east cross wing to left having gable-mounted chimney, and single 3-light recessed cavetto mullioned casement to upper floor and attic. Flush gable to right is also part of C17 enlargement with single-window fenestration below. East front: c1700 front to north wing has 3 gables, 3- window fenestration ; 4-light to ground floor and 3-light to upper floor, all under continuous hoodmoulds; 2-light with separate hoodmould in each gable. Central ridge-mounted chimney with 4 linked shafts and moulded cap. North end of wing partially obscured by late C19 2-storey service addition with mullioned and transomed fenestration. East elevation to east cross wing has 4 gables. Scattered and mixed fenestration, much restored. South side: a confusing mixture of gables and additions. Tall narrow blank-gabled projection to rear of earliest part was probably the stair turret, ceasing in that function during C18 alterations. Larger gable with indications of altered openings is part of C17 enlargement; rendered projection at south west corner being part of late C19 alterations. Interior: altered in C18 and late C19. Ice house (q.v.) and dovecote (q.v.) to north. (A.R.J. Jurica, 'Coln St Aldwyns' in V.C.H. Glos vii, 1981, pp 44- 55; and D. Verey, Gloucestershire: The Cotswolds, 1979)
