Something to amuse the kids this half-term?

Gallery: have a first peak inside this isolated house which is to appear on TV

Standing at 1,100ft above sea level – and with just sheep for neighbours – the Keeper’s Cottage is probably the most remote house near Huddersfield.

And the house, which is currently little more than a shell, is to feature on the BBC home transformation programme Homes Under The Hammer.

The home, also known as the Game Keeper’s Cottage, hasn’t been occupied since the mid-1980s.
