Two storeys, 3 bays, of which bay 3 is taller, with the coped gables and chimneys. Bays 1 and 2 have beaded mullioned windows in recessed architraves below, of 2- and 3-lights, with similar-sized small-pane casement windows above, and C20 door and porch between: bay 3 has wide casement windows in stone architraves at both levels, possibly double sash windows formerly, with to left a C20 door set in stone architrave with flat stone hood on console brackets. Rear elevation similar, with a semi-circular arched window to the stairwell. Interior not seen. Extending from the north-west corner westwards a 2-storey stone building with slate roof, much altered and not of special interest. First recorded c1285, the mill was a water/grist mill until the mid C18, whereafter it was jointly a grain mill and a linen establishment - part of the house may date from the changeover - but all other mill buildings now demolished.
