There is a three-roomed dwelling, three dwellings with four rooms each, twelve rooms, barns, turnip sheds, a hay shed, stables, horse boxes, loose boxes, piggeries, byres, a dairy byre, a lambing shed, folds, a store, workshops, an engine house and a four-ton weighing machine. Building materials used include stone, lime, wood, slate, corrugated iron and thatch.
There is a smithy, a silage pit and a long, stone, slated and hipped-roofed range across the track to the N. The range has an exterior staircase to the upper floors on the W side, six open bays on the E of the building under flat stone lintels, and there are small granary windows under eaves (2000).
