    If you look at the satellite view on Google maps, it looks like the road takes you in to a really big house, probably an old Manor house of something - looks really big and at the back of it there seems to be loads of stables, sheds etc.

    If you go to geohive (on a PC, not a mobile device) you'll be able to see the historic context and the building might even be identified.

    Yes. Holypark House. ONce owned by the Blake family. Now it is privately owned with a horse training operation in the back of the property. Unfortunately it is not publicly accessible.
