"I remember driving down this lane with my parents when I was about six-years-old and seeing The Crooked House come into view and sort of laughed at it.

"As time went by I'd come down with my friend on our bikes and the landlord would let us in and show us the marble rolling up the ledge. As I became an adult it was a case of people would come and stay with us and we'd say let's take them to The Crooked House as it was something unique.
