Wow, that would pretty much be my dream home if it was all fixed up. And if I owned one of those nigh-indestructible Toyota 4WD trucks of Top Gear fame. I love the Lake District, and I know I'd appreciate the peace and privacy such an isolated home would bring. The movie tie-in would be icing on the cake.

I saw Withnail and I on what was at the time the largest cinema screen in Europe, which was right here in Bedford. Alas, they decided to tear it down and build a Lidl... which makes me wish I had a 'Camberwell Carrot' right about now!

Yeah, I could be happy in a place like that, too. I'd guess, at a conservative estimate, you'd need at least the sale price again just to make it habitable again, though.
I can't remember where I first saw Withnail. Probably on telly. I'll have to see if I can find it on disc; I'd like to see it again.
