Farmhouse, now part of hotel. Mid C18 with older core. Ashlar with Welsh slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays. C20 panelled door and 4-pane sashes in raised stone surrounds. Steeply-pitched roof with flat coping and kneelers Corniced left end stack; the right gable has a partly external stack.

To rear, old masonry in lower courses. Pointed-arched stair window with raised surround and intersecting glazing bars.

Inside a very large blocked fireplace with Tudor-arched lintel. (Listed Building Report)

Further research on The Pines is suggested in order to ascertain whether it originated as a bastle house or not - this could hopefully remove the mystery about its 'older core'. (Whitton Conservation Area Charater Appraisal 2008)
