The majority of properties surrounding the cottage have been restored or are in the process of restoration. The cottage has aluminium framed windows and metal door. The roof, which has been constructed with wooden timbers and traditional, hand crafted tiles, does need some attention. The main entrance to the cottage is accessed via an concrete staircase to the front.

There are traditional stone topped window seats within the living room as well as internal wooden shutters.
