A partially enclosed stone hut circle settlement situated on a north west facing slope of Cosdon Hill overlooking the valley of the River Taw. The enclosure survives as a 50 metre long by 36 metre wide oval shaped area defined by a 2.4 metre wide and 0.4 metre high earthwork, with occasional orthostats. Two short lengths of walling lead from the northern side of the enclosure, suggesting that it may have been agglomerated, though because of peat accumulation the extent and character of the additional enclosures could not be established by fieldwork. A substantial gap in the western circuit of the enclosure may be the result of robbing, although a smaller one on the same side may represent an original entrance. There are two stone hut circles attached to the inner face of the main enclosure, a third lies close to one of the possible additional enclosure walls and four more lie to the south west. The stone hut circles survive as stone and earth banks each surrounding a circular internal area and two have visible doorways. Scheduled.
