Sandstone rubble with quoins and ashlar dressings. L-plan west part, and much of 3 sides of east part, of long range, linked by early C20 byres. West wall survives to height of c.5 metres, and has some large irregular quoins; 2 low square-headed openings, the north with large triangular stone as lintel and the south with irregular stone lintel; 2 courses above sill level of upper storey show one opening with irregular-block jambs. About 3 metres of south wall survive, without features. East part has most of east and parts of north and south walls of rectangular building originally 2 storeys high and perhaps 3 bays. East wall has clasping buttresses, the right wider, with top corbels; parapet partly survives. Tall slightly-chamfered round-headed panel contains blocked 2-centred-arched window with cusped intersecting tracery; further blocking in lower part continues from ground and forms later chimney. South wall has one small chamfered lancet. North wall has small narrow slit window with chamfered surround, and small chamfered lancet above. Interior shows first-floor flat-Tudor-arched fireplace inserted. One medieval round pier survives in linking C20 farm building, which is otherwise not of interest.
