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 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.
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.
I ask people to treat the carriage respectfully, and to leave with all the washing up done and put away. If there are any breakages I appreciate it if you could let me know.
