This might be the drug company. Its address is the Old Stables, Bagshot Park:

Id be very surprised if that is part of the main house; stable blocks are normally separate.

The drug company was separate from the main house. The estate itself is very large, so perhaps there are stables somewhere on the grounds.

Google Bagshot Park go to maps and look at it - you can see the separate blok behind the house.

It is huge, it's mad. It makes sense for them to not use the entire building as it's way too big for them. My friend lives in Bagshot at the walls surrounding the estate go on for quite a long time. It's a huge place.

I think they run their office from there as well. They use it for meetings and receptions. Far better that it is lived in, even partially, than left empty. Good security and lots of places to play and ride for the children. Lovely place to grow up.

Yes, I believe they use it as their office, as well as Buckingham Palace. It is a beautiful mansion and the architecture of it is stunning. People complain that is too big for them, but they don't realise that they don't use all of the house. Only part of it. It is a great place to play, imagine hide and seek in that house!

Am I right in thinking the Queen bought Anne and Andrew houses (in their own right) when they married, whereas Edward has only been given the lease of a house?

I assume you mean Andrew. Anne was bought Gatcombe Park, but Sunninghill Park was bought by the Crown Estates on behalf of The Queen. Bagshot Park has always been a private royal residence.

There's a lot of detail on Bagshot, staffing speculation, etc. here: Bagshot Park, Social Life and Lifestyle

Pictures from a reception hosted at Bagshot Park. Lots of darkwood panneling, nice - but very dark!

Bagshot Park is not a private royal residence. It belongs to the Crown Estate, just like Royal Lodge. It was leased for the Earl and Countess of Wessex. They pay the rent, of course people complain its peanuts
And they have sublet most of the building to a drug company..IIRC

Seeing as it's pretty much been a royal residence since the 1600s and only been used as regimental headquarters in between being occupied by royals. I'll be going with it's a royal residence thanks.

Its not privately owned it is owned by the Crown Estate but it is a private residence in that it is used mainly as a private residence/home rather than for official business.

The sublet is in a separate part of the buildings with separate entrance etc.

The couple do use their home for offical business - receptions etc.

What a farce. You don't think they will move into smaller digs and pay rent? It will be paid. Guess by whom? Guess with whose money? Right personal funds, that they all got from working.
