The monument comprises the remains of a well-preserved medieval moated homestead.
The moated area of Llys Edwin measures 58m north-east to south-west by 54m. In 1931 excavation indicated a multiphase moated house, focussed on the northern quadrant.
A possible fishpond, c86m by 18m is aligned with the south-west arm of the moat, and earthworks in the north-east may indicate the presence of a formal garden. Finds indicate late thirteenth to early fourteenth century occupation.
