The larger right (east) room has a disused gable-end stack. 1-room plan extension of circa 1960 on left end. 2 storeys. Exterior: regular but not symmetrical 3-window front of circa 1965 casements without glazing bars. Ground floor left window is converted to a French window. Doorway has been moved from the centre to the left of the original cottage and contains a C20 door and contemporary shingle roofed porch. Another similar door and porch on the side of the extension.

Torhill Cottage lies close by the main A30 which at this point is embanked and therefore the traffic passes close to the thatch roof.
