About this listing

The Railway Carriage is the perfect romantic hide away, set in its own beautiful apple orchard. And when the sun sets in summer, there is no place I would rather be!
The carriage is perfect for 2, but can accommodate another bed for a child.

The space

The carriage is a beautifully restored old goods wagon that sits within our orchard. It is the perfect place to feel like you are getting away from the world. It has all the things to make you feel comfortable whilst still making you feel away from it all. There is an old wrought iron bath, and the toilet is a composting one, a few meters away from the carriage. The wood burning stove heats the carriage beautifully on cold days, and the hot water is always piping. And when the sun shines it is fabulous to lie amongst the buttercups and apple tress and soak up the sun.
The kitchen has an electric cooker, but no oven. It does have a fridge, but it is outside the carriage due to the noise. Otherwise there is everything that you are likely to need to create some delicious meals. We provide lots of basic foods that a stay will need..olive oil, vinegar, jam, some spices, tamari, milk, tea bags, cocoa, coffee, and a loaf of bread.
We provide towels and all the bedding.

Guest access

The carriage is set in an orchard which feels private and separate from our main house. It is just beside our house, and has easy access from the drive way.

Interaction with guests

I will always try and be here to greet you on your arrival, or failing that am happy to get someone to meet you and show you around.

Other things to note

We are a busy family, with 4 children. There may be some noise from the children playing from time to time.

Although generally quiet, our road can get busy at harvest time when the tractors are busy silage making.

The carriage is a magical little sanctuary in a great part of Somerset (Bruton town & Hauser & Wirth gallery). Sad we only had one night here as I could have stayed for a week! You have your very own orchard with a fire pit and BBQ, beautiful roll top bath, local eggs, bread, milk and butter & the beautifully decorated interior makes it extra special. Thanks Zoe (& Teasel the dog) for a memorable stay- highly recommended!

Very comfortable glamping, a sweet and nicely decorated space. Despite being next to the house it was secluded and private. We booked the same weekend that a festival was happening near by, unbeknownst to us, but we were not unduly disturbed by it. Lovely hosts.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Upton Noble. We could easily have stayed for another week. Once we found our routine it was quite comfortable in the carriage. We did a lot of sight seeing and had the impression that the location was realy good for that. Bruton is also a nice village and that is absolutely a plus too.

The photos don't do this place justice - you just need to be there! The Orchard is beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome, yet left to our own devices. We only stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed longer, the location is great and in a beautiful area. The carriage is very comfortable, clean and don't be put off by the compost loo. We work festivals and believe me - compost loos are the best! We didn't get to use the bbq or log burner but had a great bath. We went for a lovely walk the day we left and are already planning when we can come back.

What a gorgeous hidden gem. Amazingly cosy place to stay. Hosts couldn't be more helpful. Loo with a view to challenge the Shard in London.

My husband and I had a peaceful stay in the carriage very relaxing especially after a bath. The log burner heats the place up in no time at all and the bed was super comfy. This is the first time we have stayed anywhere like this and would most certainly do it again. Thank you to Zoe for super communication and for letting us stay.

Zoe's carriage is a very cool place to spend a fun day or two. It's better than described, simple to use and the orchard was lovely! Comfy bed and crispy sheets, the carriage was cleaner and in better shape than I expected. If you don't feel like using the BBQ or the induction hob ... the nearby town of Bruton has a superb restaurant, At the Chapel. Zoe was easy to deal with, comms was quick and everything was made easy for us.
