It is really difficult to see because of all the trees around it. Yesterday, I asked Mr LOL to stop the car so I could try and get a closer look. Success:
I found a small road which goes to the front of house, just off the main road. My research has failed to glean any info about this huge place. My guess is that it is relatively new. Only the very top of the roof is covered with chicken wire so you can see more of the detail of the entire roof.
Off to have a look at the cottage that is being re-thatched. They are working on the ridge now and it seems to be a long job.
