There is a double bed in the main bedroom, two singles in the second bedroom and single sofa bed in the living room. It has a modern shower room upstairs and also a ground floor loo. The cottage is full of character, with strip pine floors, oak board doors, map wall of old OS maps and wood burning stove. It is filled with original artifacts made by the owner: driftwood and copper fish, a driftwood plate rack, and a forest of driftwood trees.

We've just come back from a fabulous weekend in Teesdale, made possible by Tom and this gorgeous little cottage. Just as advertised, it's cosy, quirky and a perfect home from home. We were sadly only around for the weekend, but the area has so much...More

We really enjoyed our stay. It's a lovely house and Tom was very helpful to us. These are old Engineman's cottages and the whole terrace felt very neighbourly and lovely. The Weardale railway was good for us ... it is great fun and enthusiastically run...More

About the neighborhood
Wear Valley Junction is a quiet hamlet of about twenty houses situated on either side of The Weardale Railway line. It is quite a close knit community (we all know each other) and events are organised several times a year. One family has a small holding which produces eggs and seasonal vegetables - they keep horses, sheep, chickens and sometimes pigs. The village of Witton-le-Wear with its two pubs is a 25-minute walk along a path which follows the railway line. Low Barnes Nature Reserve is a fifteen minute walk.

How to get there
Airport: Newcastle Airport: 24.9 mi
Railway: Bishop Auckland: 2.5 mi
From the North or the South the best route to The Pink House is along the A68 and then through the village of Witton le Wear. From the village follow the road which runs down past The Victoria pub, over the railway crossing at the bottom and onto Low Lane. Follow Low Lane for just over a mile. You will pass Low Barns Nature Reserve on your right. Continue for another two hundred and fifty yards and take a left turn (sign here which says: leading to Railway Cottages and Engineman's Terrace). Follow the lane up, go over the railway line and Engineman's Terrace is straight ahead. WARNING: satnavs often direct guests through Howden le Wear and down a long, bumpy, unmade, single track lane. Avoid this route.
