From here you'll find a well-appointed contemporary shower room along with a light and airy king-size bedroom, complete with Smart TV for lazy mornings in bed.

The Railway Carriage is a very special place to stay. We couldnt believe the level of detail in the conversion and subsequent very high standard of furnishings / fittings. Having the hot tub was the bonus to the outside secluded decking. The welcome hamper made the whole experience one we will always remember, thank you for a great holiday, hopefulRead morely we will be back ! Hide

Lovely, interesting place to stay. It is obvious that a lot of thought went into converting the railway carriage, with all the nice little details.
