Brick stacks to the ridges of wings and party wall. H-shaped plan. 2 storeys; symmetrical 4-window range (each cottage is 2-window range). Flat gauged brick arches to C20 windows. The set-back main block has a window at eaves level to each cottage above a continuous slate-roofed verandah over C20 doors; larger windows to the forward-facing outer wings, those to ground floor are in cambered-arched recesses with stone keystones. The right return of No.1 to right has 2 similar but wider recesses on a rubblestone plinth possibly to a former building. The wings are of old Bridgwater brick to ground floor and Flettons to first floor suggesting an enlargement in the mid C19.
