This well-preserved enclosed hut group lies on a moderate SE-facing slope below a rocky hillside which rises more steeply towards Moel Goedog fort to the NW.
The largest hut, to the NE, is as described by them, measuring about 7.3 m in internal diameter, and is built with large stones on the inner and outer faces, most noticeably on the SE side. The NW side has been cut into the hillside and the entrance opens into the yard area on the SW. A second hut, similarly scarped into the hillside, lies on the SW side of the yard and measures about 6 m across, but has been cut by the track which crosses the monument. The two other huts, on the SE of the yard, can still be identified, but the track appears to have caused disturbance
On the upper side of the yard, cut into the slope, is a substantial rectangular structure measuring over 11m by 4.6m. This is joined onto the largest circular hut.
A D-shaped paddock adjoins the site to the S, and a setting of 5 upright stones running S from the SW hut may indicate further field walls.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
