Graduated greenslate roof with C20 red sandstone coping; large rubble chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 4 bays with rear right-angled 2-storey, 5-bay stable range, partly domestic, forming overall T-shape. The present facade was originally the rear and the off-centre C17 2-bay gabled stone porch was formerly the dairy, its roof now reduced in height. Porch doorway is probably C20 but appears older.

Rear 2-, 3- and 4-light stone-mullioned windows and 2 mullioned-and-transomed windows between which is a defaced coat-of-arms. Owner considers that the rear stable range is the oldest part. Left pointed-arched doorway and 2- and 3-light stone-mullioned windows. Further right flat-headed doorways and loft doorways. The rear has a stair projection which covers part of one of the stone-mullioned windows in rear of main hall. 2- and 3-light stone-mullioned windows, nearly all of which have been blocked. Interior of main hall has large C16 segmental-arched stone fireplace. Blocked spiral stone staircase. End room has elaborate late C16 patterned plasterwork ceiling in poor state of preservation. C17 oak-panelled walls. Simpler patterned plaster frieze in bedroom above. Domestic part of stable has added semicircular staircase. See RCHM, Westmorland, 1936, p.222, plates 17, 48 and 50.
