Larkspur Nocton Hall is a good possibility. I had been thinking whether  it could have been an old cottage hospital.

RAF Nocton Hall Hospital was in use past 1977, my daughter was born late 1977 there. Problem with this as a possibility is it didn't open until 1947.

There is Nocton Hall itself to consider, this is what I found out about the hall.  During the First World War the house was used as a convalescence home for wounded American Officers. During the Second World War the Americans again used the house as a military hospital after which it was taken over by the RAF and an extensive hospital developed in the grounds. It reverted to private use in the 1980s.

Nocton was treating the Military up to the first Gulf War , which I didn't know until today.
Also Nocton was deemed too small by WW2 and so Rauceby hospital was built.
That's all I have been able to find.
