Grade II listed House, situated about one mile south of Strata Florida Abbey. 

Part of the house was thought to have been present at the time of the Abbey and is medieval in character. However the majority of the house is probably early eighteenth century in rear wing with early nineteenth century front range, stuccoed and with an extension built on to the left of main house around 1910. There are late nineteenth century or early twentieth century alterations. A range to the rear of the present house was demolished by the Forest Commission some 30 years ago, as also a large barn to the South, which appears on the tithe map, twice the size of the house.

A lofted coach-house next to the main building is marked on the 1843 Tithe map. It has a formal design with roundel made up of fragments from Strata Florida abbey. First floor central circular window in limestone surround is flanked by two plundered scrolled stones from Strata Florida
