• Remember Uncle Monty’s “horrible shack,” that forbidding slab of stone and mortar Marwood and Withnail escape to in the cult classic Withnail and I? Well, the real name of that Lake District cottage is Crow Crag, and after years of dilapidation, it has a new proprietor, who’s planning to turn the cult destination (Withnail fans have been making pilgrimages to it for years, even scribbling dialogue from the film on its window boards) into a cozy getaway. You can read all about it in this story in the Guardian, and maybe soon you’ll be able to visit its tearoom and holiday accommodations.
