The Pink House: cosy and quirky; two bedrooms; self-catering. Ideal for: Hadrian's Wall, Hexham and Corbridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, Beamish Museum, Durham City, the Bishop Auckland Kynren, Barnard Castle, Teesdale and High Force, Saltburn by the Sea.
The Pink House is itself a place to visit. Its strip pine floors, oak board doors, map wall and wood burning stove are just the start. It is filled with original artifacts made by the owner: driftwood and copper fish; a plate rack made from driftwood and upcycled scaffolding boards; and a forest of driftwood trees.
The Pink House can sleep up to five guests. There is a double bed in the main bedroom, two singles in the second bedroom, and a single bed settee in the living room.
There is a shower room on the first floor and a ground floor toilet (see images).

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
We occasionally have steam trains passing through - and a very impressive sight it is. Sadly, it doesn't happen often enough. A platform has recently been built at Witton le Wear; hopefully, it will soon get some use.
All we ask is that Guests look after the house and keep it clean and tidy. Pets are allowed so long as they also look after the house and keep it clean and tidy.
No smoking in the house.
The Pink House has been my obsession for the past eighteen months. I wanted to create a place to stay that was cosy and interesting and also has a wow factor. I haven't been counting the "wows" but so far so good. I can now get back to my normal life of making beautiful things out of bits and bobs, such as driftwood, playing the guitar badly, and trying to become a successful Day Trader.
