This could be the most ex­quis­ite tiny ban­quet­ing house in the whole of Eng­land. The Ban­quet­ing House at Gib­side, near New­cas­tle, has one dou­ble room (with two sin­gle beds in the liv­ing room) and costs £956 for seven nights, £1,904 for 10, from De­cem­ber 23, through The Land­mark Trust (01628 825920;­mark­trust. It was built in 1746 to stand at the high­est point of the es­tate, over­look­ing an oc­tag­o­nal pool and the Der­went Val­ley. The Trust found it roof­less, half col­lapsed and shrouded in trees, and re­stored it. Keep warm with a solid fuel stove. The set­ting is grand but the liv­ing is sim­ple.
