Looking again at these pics, some of the mortar looks new and some areas are very 1970's/80's and filthy dusty so I am thinking this went out of use, was bought and improvements started on but then went back out of use. In places it has that kitsch quality of a seaside "attraction", themed inn or medieval banqueting place and that themed outdoor pool is pretty unsubtle so may be for kids but it also reminds me of a place where they let the seals come out for the tourists, especially with that window - maybe for tickets or ice creams? The aquariums, window pond and parrot cage tie in with this seaside attraction theory and the tables could have carried more tanks. There seems to be a bar or shop counter and possibly a cloakroom/reception booth or smaller serving hatch. Maybe they retired (or the price of pine went up and they went bust, lol) and then it was bought by someone who wanted to make it a bit more sophisticated but they went bust. /Sherlock Holmes mode off, lol.
...and looking at pic 1, the wood used for the shelf reminds me of a boat rudder for some reason. There is also other old wood over doorways, maybe an old maritime/smuggling theme going on, what with the fish ponds/tanks and stuff. Poldark or Onedin comes to mind.
The original property comprised a period farmhouse with a range of traditional outbuildings. Over the years the house has been extended to incorporate the barns and provide a house with a footprint of about 5718 sq ft (531.22 sq m). The majority of the accommodation is arranged over a single floor with part of the original house being over two floors and one of the converted barns dropping down to a lower ground floor level. The house is currently semi-derelict and requires complete renovation.
In the grounds is an outbuilding with a footprint of 2454 sq ft (228 sq m) that has been constructed to provide a large single storey dwelling of four/five bedrooms.
Within the grounds are a number of additional outbuildings that could be put to a variety of uses, subject of course to gaining any relevant planning consents. There is a large outdoor pool complex which comprises a number of changing rooms and a circular open air swimming pool.
The gardens and grounds extend to about 1.56 acres and benefit from road access onto the site at three points.

I was told that they did some tele sales from here but not the above company.
