The oldest part of the house is the north wing which dates back to the 15th century, or earlier. A south cross-wing was added in the middle of the 16th century and the north wing was enlarged and re-fronted in the early 17th century. Alterations and additions were made to the rear of the house in the late 19th century. The major part of the house is timber framed with oak frames and plaster panels on a sandstone plinth. The north end gable is built in stone and brick. The rear wing is of brick with steeply pitched grey slate roofs. On the north gable and on south wall of the cross-wing are massive projecting chimneys of stone and brick.
