|Taynton House (lodge not pictured)|
An application for planning permission was made to Forest of Dean District Council on Monday, January 6.
Taynton House was built in 1660 and features a period bull-ring, a secret garden and an ornamental pond. Mr. Ashcroft bought the then-£500,000 property in 1998. Not long after he moved in, he restored the main house to its original colour with a deep red paint.
