Normally, an address right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, surrounded by National Park countryside, would be considered highly desirable.
But residents living in one part of North Yorkshire may be forgiven for feeling theirs attracts some unwelcome jokes.
The village of Crackpot, in the Upper Dales and close to the River Swale, has been named on a list of the most unfortunate place names.
It's in good company as well.
Scratchy Bottom in Dorset, Brokenwind in Aberdeenshire and Golden Balls in Oxfordshire also made the list, as did Ugley in Essex and Happy Bottom in Dorset.
The table was compiled by the website findmypast.
