Studio,The Garden Room, 1 Birkheads

Private room in hut hosted by Fiona
2 guests1 bedroom1 bedPrivate half-bath
A secluded private studio in our woodland garden. Perfect base to explore Beamish. Our Garden Room was built by an architect in the 60's and renovated by us 5 years ago to include real wood floor, wood burning stove and small ensuite toilet and sink.
Its low-tech and simple - allowing you to switch off and enjoy our rural location.

The space
The Garden Room is a unique, private cabin approx 10 metres from our house, nestled in our wild woodland garden. The room is a large studio with comfy double sofa bed, bookcase, table/desk and wood burning stove with French windows which open into the conservatory in fine weather facing west so you can enjoy the sunset. It has a small ensuite bathroom which has a toilet and sink (cold water only although kettle provided). You can arrange with us to have showers at the house.

Guest access
Guests have access to the main studio and private bathroom. We have space for 1 car directly behind the Garden Room but there is space for 1 more on the lane nearby if needed.

Other things to note
There are are a few small steps up to the garden room. You may use our garden to relax in during fine weather but please note we do have a very friendly dog who also occasionally uses the garden.

Location

Marley Hill, United Kingdom

We are the end cottage in a row of 5 Railwaymens Cottages built in 1852 alongside the railway - now the Bowes Railway Path. This is a rural location close to Beamish which is extremely popular with walkers, cyclists and bird watchers, however we are less than 6 miles from the centre of Newcastle (approx £15 in a taxi) and less than 2 miles off the A1 at Team Valley and under 5 miles from the Metro Centre so we are still handy if you want to be in the city. Beamish Museum is under 2 miles away. You can walk to the famous Tanfield Railway along the Bowes Railway path (15mins walk), and a further 10 mins walk will take you to Causey Arch and our nearest pub The Causey Arch Inn. There are several lovely pubs within 3 miles of the Garden Room. The house and Garden Room studio have recently been featured in House Beautiful magazine (April 2017 edition).
