|Powis House: rear elevation|
The house has harled walls with quoins and window margins, and rather small lintelled windows, coupled in the central bay of the north front about a columned semicircular portico. At the rear of the entrance hall a scale-and-platt staircase rises under a cupola. To the north-west stands the square quadrangular stable block of c.1800, now converted to housing. It incorporates a sharply domed octagonal dovecote. The house is now (2013) operated as a bed-and-breakfast establishment.
