The monument comprises several hut circles, the foundations of round houses probably dating to the Bronze Age or Iron Age (c.2300 BC - AD 74) which lie on gently sloping ground to the west of Carn Ffoi Camp hillfort. At least four hut circles are visible as circular stone structures averaging 4-5m in diameter and c. 0.3m high. The huts lie within a system of linear banks defining small enclosures and fields likely to have been contemporary with the settlement. The use of the fields for cultivation is suggested by a number of small stone clearance cairns set close to the banks.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric domestic life and social organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of structural evidence and associated archaeological features and deposits.

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