I've tuned this one up a bit. Hope it helps you find the place.
I just like to do photo restores.

Can I chip in Port Sunlight?
This post is a natural hand made product. The slight variations in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and in no way are to be considered flaws. Unfortunately my preferred method of writing (Parker Quink on Basildon Bond) cannot be used.

I think Cazza was going to get us a close up of the man. He has dogs, first I thought sheep, but perhaps not! by him so close-up of those would be good too.  In one of the windows in the main part of the house there appears to be something white.  Perhaps it is something like a lampshade  or perhaps it says 'The name of this house is XXXX and it is in Co XXXXX.  With the sharpening up of the photo am I seeing a line of hills to the right of the photo? 

The man looks a bit like one of the Queen's relatives with the tallish build and beard, sort of naval as well.

Just looking at this again, there are some variations of style which I hadn't noticed before.

The middle wing (the one with the front door) has its timbering down to almost ground level; the black timbers in the gable have a different pattern to the one next to it; the ground floor window is of a different style; and where it projects beyond the part nearer to us, the side-facing stonework looks rougher.

Would a mock Tudor house have been built to look as though it had grown over the centuries, or are we actually looking at a much older house which has been substantially extended?
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

The setup to me also looks like an old house has grown 'organically' as they say.  Parts of the additions are very close so that they would be easy to join to the existing structure.  Then there are the buildings to the right. 

Perhaps a dower house as the/a drive seems  as if it passes in front.  But perhaps to get to farm buildings further along. 

Also looking at man again he looks like he has puttees perhaps or jodhpur type trousers.
