The farm lies in an elevated position on the slopes of Foel-ddu. The 4-bay farm building or beudy is uphill sited, constructed of slate stone on boulder foundations, and has an old irregular slate roof on one side between boulder coped gables. The slate has been replaced with corrugated iron on the rear. Entrance in the 2nd bay from the uphill end, opening to the cowhouse. One small square ventilation window towards the upper end, and a pitching door in the gable. The lower two bays have a separate door opening to the yard, and an added lean-to stone structure under an extension of the roof.
Divided into 4 bays by tie beam and principal rafter trusses, one with a high-set collar. The cowhouse is floored over, and has slate stall partitions augmented with wood, and tethering posts to each.
Reason for designation
Included as a typical early Meirionnydd mountain farm building incorporating various farming functions in one building.
