The monument consists of the remains of a deserted rural settlement, probably dating to the medieval or post-medieval period and is situated on sloping ground to the north-east of Beili-Bedw farm. The settlement features include a system of field banks, small enclosures and platforms for buildings covering an area of c.5.5ha.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval or post-medieval settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. A deserted rural settlement may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
