Take a Peep into Pry House Farm B&B

Here are a few of my favourite things...
The stone shelves we discovered when we renovated the house in 2005

I love warm colours like orange, yellow and tan...

 ... and collecting vintage plates and pottery that reflect the fields & meadows surrounding Pry House

I love the unusual presents my sister gives me (all farming related!) ...

..... and our beautiful pitch pine doors and making pretty 'proddy' items out of scraps of material.

But most of all I love my vintage dolls house.  It was bought before the war for two lucky little girls (my mum and her sister) from Hamleys of London and transported by rail to Darlington Station.  In turn my sister and I played with it but now it lives in the master ensuite bedroom and ....

I'm perfectly happy for guests to take a peek inside, play, rearrange the furniture and enjoy it. 
It may be over 70 years old but it was bought as a toy and its meant to be played with.  Have fun!
