Twinkle twinkle little star

Whilst on holiday in Cumbria, I spotted this interesting vehicle by chance!
This was the closest I could get initially with a long zoom lens, to try an identify the marque
After a bit of research I was still puzzled.
So to clear up the mystery I approached the owner, who as well as clarifying the make, also advised that it might be for sale!
From here the seed was sowed!!
