Caught in a sub-clause

Something I meant to say yesterday but got sucked into a sub-clause from which I never escaped, was that the the book about Boars Hill is the one by Margaret Aldiss, the late wife of the great man. Indeed, sadly, the book was published posthumously.
The question to which I would like an answer is why did Cousin Jasper advice Charles Ryder to stay away from Boars Hill? Was there a house of ill-repute before the war, as there was during the war. Or what? The interwebs do not seem to be able to help me with this one.
