Searching for 'Lydbrook House, Lydbrook' turned up some interesting, though probably not useful, information.

First, I discovered a second Lydbrook House in Upper Lydbrook which immediately made me wonder if we were looking at the correct one. I think we are. In the Ross Gazette, Thursday 03 September 1908, there is an advert for the sale of the contents of the late Dr Linde's home. The location is described as 'Near to Lydbrook Junction Railway Station' which would put it in Lower Lydbrook rather than Upper Lydbrook.

I also found a list of several companies with Lydbrook House listed as their registered address at https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/IN8ySK-5uQPfAvgkfP3iSHBgTRo/appointments All relate to one individual so I guess that's who lives there now. Does make it sound like a private residence.

Apparently, there used to be a cafe at the house but seems like it might be closed now. See https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g1068912-d1978156-Reviews-The_Garden_Ca...

If you look at the name associated with the companies in the link above then look at this list of people you'll find an email address and telephone number. Might be out of date but worth a try if you were thinking of visiting. https://www.lydbrookcouncil.co.uk/parishcouncil.html
