30 East Drive, Pontefract IS NOT a traditional guesthouse, Hotel, B&B or party venue; it isn’t catered for, you won’t be covered by insurance and frankly, the owner DOES NOT recommend that you stay here! If however you get a thrill from the idea of staying in this modest ex-council house in the company of one of the most terrifying (if not THE most terrifying) poltergeists in the world, then be our guest. Literally, a guest. All you’ll need to do is to abide by some rules and to pay something towards the maintenance of the property.
The actual property is a 50′s build ex-council property that has had modest little done to it in 65 years due in no small way to the ‘sitting tenant’. Well, the central heating works when ‘Fred’ isn’t interfering with it, and there is double-glazing – which is regretted, because the owner is determined to keep the 70′s vibe that the property is synonymous with. It is a little damp – not because of any leaks, but mainly because of the old well (down which the body of the executed monk and his victims are said to have been thrown) that sits directly under the house.
The furniture is 70’s authentic (it was bought from charity shops locally as the original furniture was removed by the Pritchard family before they sold the property) as is the overall experience; the tempramental cooker is original and dishwashers didn’t exist in the 70’s, if you get the drift?
There are three beds without bedding (a double, and two singles) – so you will have to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags (think ‘camping’). The third bed, in the small room (Diane’s), was recently trashed by the poltergeist (‘Fred’) during a 3am loss of temper, so please bear this in mind when deciding to spend the night in this particular room; the bed has now been fixed.
Juxtaposed to the cold spirit that resides in number 30, the locals are warm, welcoming, spirited folk – you will find the experience of meeting them memorable, and we suspect, comforting.
