The monument consists of a platform house, a levelled area of ground on which a house is built. The remains include a stone walled building measuring 11m x 5m set on an earth platform built into a SSW facing slope at the edge of the Llanbedr Hill common. The house lies within the boundaries of a large earth banked enclosure.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of settlement organisation. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. a platform house may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.
