Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar quoins and dressings, Collyweston slate roof. T-plan, the rear wing probably a C17 addition.

To first floor is a semi-circular headed and chamfered doorway, with chamfered and reeded imposts and hood with tightly curled stops. To right a C16 4 light window, pointed heads to the lights with concave moulded rectangular surround and hood. To right a C12 2 light window having chamfered surround, round heads to the lights and slender facetted mullion with plain capitals. Above the plain tympanum a chamfered hood mould. To the left gable a C19 planked door with segmental head occupies the position of an earlier opening marked by the relieving arch above. To the first floor a C12 2 light window and to the right a second similar window, repositioned to light the inserted staircase. To both gable ends are a chamfered string course with tall rectangular light above in chamfered surround. At the rear is the projecting added C17 wing now with C19 planked door and casements, and to the main range are 2 blocked C12 openings, a buttress and fine ashlar chimney breast terminating in a gabled square base to slender C12 circular stack with roll moulded top. In the roof a C19 2 light gabled dormer with rendered cheeks. Interior. The undercroft consists of 2 chambers, one of 2 bays with quadripartite chamfered vaults, springing from splayed corbels. The other having a barrel vault. On the first floor a magnificent C12 rounded back fireplace with massive ashlar hood having joggled lintel supported on a pair of chamfered corbels, with above a rolled and filleted string. In the wall to the right a triangular headed cupboard and round headed corbelled doorway. In the chamber beyond the C12 window has a stone seat and a C19 doorway to the rear wing. The C16 ceilings, inserted into the open hall, have chamfered girders with ogee stops. The hall has been divided into 2 rooms and a C19 staircase by C16 timber frame partitions with heavy oak studs. The clasped purlin roof is C19. The house was probably built for the de Boothby family and later occupied by the Paynelle family. It is a rare survival of a Norman Manor House. A new house has built nearby in c.1630, and the Manor House has been uninhabited since early C20. Source: Lincolnshire Museum's Information Sheet No.23. Now scheduled Ancient Monument, No.13.
