Former farmhouse, marked as Manor Farmhouse on the 6 inch O.S. map, possibly with medieval origins.

Random roughly squared limestone with dressed stone quoins; stone slate roof; stacks restored C20 in squared and dressed limestone. 'L'-shaped C17 range with remains of an earlier range at right angles at rear adjoining a C17 kitchen range with some additional C19 service rooms. Main body: 2 storeys with a 3-windowed facade with. two raking buttresses to eaves height. Four 12-pane sashes with rebated dressed stone surrounds to the ground floor; three 3-light double-chamfered stone-mullioned casements with early fastenings to the first floor. Similar fenestration to the right gable end. Central early C20 four- panelled door with a dressed stone surround with an inscription 'UN ROI', UN LOI, UNE FOI' in raised letters on the lintel. Two and 3- light wooden casements to the ranges at the rear. Hipped roof to main body. Projecting first floor stack with corbels at the base at the left gable end of the main body; gable-end and axial stacks otherwise. Interior: C18 dog gate to spiral staircase in rear wall of the main body. Date 1776 with fleur de lys above crudely incised into plaster over the inner wall of the wine store on the ground floor. Single upper cruck truss in the range linking the main body to the kitchen range. Large open fireplace with bressumer, washing copper and early bread oven in the kitchen which contains beams with stepped stops. Roman altar piece with figure of god (possibly Esculapius) in relief built into the wall of the adjoining room (possibly from Chedworth Villa). Stone with Maltese cross in relief (probably from a medieval chapel which once stood at St John's Ashes nearby) is also built into the opposite wall. (V.C.H. Glos. Vol VII, p16)
