The setting is described as follows in the enotes summary:

The Little Stranger is a 2009 gothic novel written by Sarah Waters. It is a ghost story set in a dilapidated mansion in Warwickshire, England in the 1940s. Diverting from her earlier themes of lesbian and gay fiction, Waters' fifth novel features a male narrator, a country doctor who makes friends with a family with faded fortunes left simply with a very old estate that is crumbling around them. The stress of reconciling the state of their finances with the familial responsibility of keeping the estate coincides with perplexing events that drives one to be committed to a mental institution, and kills two more.

As far as Regan, I am guessing you must mean Roderick?  I couldn't find any reference to a character named Regan in the story.  If this is the case, Roderick is as complex as most of Sarah Waters other stories in that he is very difficult to explain.  He takes on the role of victim of the unseen thing rather than allow it to attack his relations.  He ends up being sent to an asylum after falling asleep after drinking heavily and leaving the house on fire.
