Residents at this address.

Hempstead House has 14 rooms according to the 1911 census.

Hempstead House is referred to as having an address of Tonge in the 1939 electoral register
The current restaurant at the spa hotel is called Lakes after the oweners in the 1850s. There are two Lake residences mentioned about this time, but no mention of Hempstead House before 1911.
This is today a modern privately owned Hotel and Spa. It is not cheap, and the facilities are very nice, if a little too expensive.
I stayed here for a weekend in October 2020 just before the November 2020 lockdown, and the election of Biden (we are still hoping). I was not iompressed, more a Trump style of hotel, more on promise than reality.
