Sleddale Hall, the 18th-century cottage in which Withnail and Marwood, the characters from the cult comedy hit Withnail & I, spent their holiday is up for sale. North West Water admitted yesterday it wants to sell Sleddale Hall, the 18th century cottage where the film was shot in 1986. The building stands in hundreds of acres of Cumbrian countryside and has been derelict for years. It's still visited regularly by fans from all over the world, though. North West Water had hoped to renovate the hall, and applied for planning permission to rebuild it, but planners objected. But the Vale of Eden planning officer said Sleddale Hall could be saved. "It needs a lot of work, but structurally it appears sound. The cottage is very atmospheric - you can understand why the film-makers went there. It is very isolated, and very beautiful." North West Water are considering any sensible offers for the property. The ultimate Withnail & I memorabilia could be yours. As long as you don't mind the pilgrims.
