We should collectively be looking for a run-down stately home that the national trust haven't bought up. Buy it, restore it, and open say the east wing to the general public (on the understanding "the family" lives in the rest of the building) and add a tea room, then park all the cars we want but can't find space for in the west wing. Then we have parking space that says for itself.
And we can have Mrs F, aka Sybil Fawlty on reception :D

You mean something like this! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackborough_House (Lots of other photos online as well)
Fascinating place, it was, when I paid a visit in the late 1990s :)
