Withnail and I

Withnail and I is thought by many to be one of the greatest cult films of the 1980s. So TOTD was interested to learn that Sleddale Hall, the remote Cumbrian farmhouse that served as Uncle Monty’s cottage, is being auctioned on 16th February by water company United Utilities. You’ll find it on a map at Grid Reference NY 540 113 and there are some nice photos at http://www.visitcumbria.com/pen/sleddalehall.htm

There is a brief description of the film here

and here’s a clip from the film that shows the cottage (at 1:20)

The Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations

provides some more information about other locations used in the film.

TOTD can no longer go on holiday without saying “We’ve gone on holiday by mistake”, or “Are you the farmer?”.

    News on the Crow Crag Collective site http://www.savesleddalehall.com/#/newsandlinks/4532631819 indicates that Sleddale Hall sold for £265,000 to an unknown bidder.

    Yes, it will be interesting to know. Sleddale Hall has a guide price of £145,000. However, reports in the press have indicated that Kate Moss has an interest in the property, so the price could go much higher. TOTD will investigate further after 16th February.
