30 East Drive, Pontefract IS NOT a traditional guesthouse, Hotel, B&B or party venue – and the owner recommends that you DO NOT visit, especially if you are of a nervous disposition or have a heart condition.

The owner himself has never spent the night there, and has no intention of doing so any time soon, having personally witnessed ‘It’. There are beds but no bedding (so bring your own), a kettle but no breakfast, smells 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. This is occasionally mitigated by the dry heat from the (professionally maintained) central heating system when ’It’ chooses to leave it alone.

The furniture is 70’s authentic (it was bought from charity shops locally as the original furniture was removed by the Pritchard family – as represented in the movie When the Lights Went Out – before they sold the property) as is the overall experience; the temperamental cooker is original and dishwashers didn’t exist in the 70’s, if you get the drift? Oh, and on one fairly recent occasion, the bed in the small room (Diane’s) was 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.

If however you get a thrill from the idea of spending time in a 50’s build ex-council house in the unpredictable presence of one of the most terrifying poltergeists in history – be our guest. All you’ll need to do is pay something towards the maintenance of the property and respectfully abide by some rules.
