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?”.
