I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

No one having a guess ? OK lets make it easier. Despite all the clues so far it isn't in France it's in the UK.

Different county?  I'll try Sharpham, then.  But my knowledge of British vineyards reaches its limit.

Wrong again.

The house in the first picture is on a corner and right next to a National Cycle Route sign by the way.

Is the the vineyard near Linton?  Chilford Hall?

No but you got half of the name right. It's "something" Hall :)

Getting bored now. It's on National Cycle Route 167. Should be a big enough clue as there can't be more than one place on it with a vineyard and a petangue court.

from the parish website:


I must say that NCN 167 isn't simple to track down. Sustrans don't seem to know about it, or at least admit to doing so.  The overview on the order page for the relevant paper map calls it route 166.
The only other Something Hall on the route isn't on a corner.

Looks pretty well-built to me.

Correct Westow Hall in Westow. It's near the most northerly vineyard in the UK Ryedale Vineyard and opposite a petanque court. I thought the boules was a hang over from WWII (I know quite a lot of Free French and Canadians were stationed locally) but apparently not. An old guy in the pub said it was a tennis court until the early 80s.

I'm surprised one of the York mob didn't get this one as it;s 15 miles from York  and we get lots of cyclists through the village.

Wait until you see the produce of the vineyard that's just been planted in Fife.

Seeing's okay. It's the tasting I'd worry about.
