Description

This beautiful Victorian Railway Carriage has undergone a sympathetic transformation to create a wonderful bolthole for two in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. Set within a large paddock and surrounded by glorious woodland, this is a truly tranquil escape, offering guests a unique experience.

The Railway Carriage has been carefully converted to ensure the beautiful history, charm and character is at the forefront of its quintessential interior. Every effort has been made to showcase the original features of the carriage, with gorgeous stained glass light fittings, authentic signage, brass fixtures and superbly restored wooden floorboards. This unique home offers a glimpse into a time gone by whilst having all the modern essentials you could need with a fully fitted kitchen, generous double bedroom with ensuite and plenty of living space both inside and out to enjoy some quality time together. 

This magnificent holiday home is a truly wonderful countryside retreat for any ferroequinologist looking to indulge in a steam train treat!

Reviews

The railway carriage has been beautifully renovated to make a unique place to stay. We looked directly into the woods on one side and were able to watch birds and squirrels as well as admiring the blue bells. Lovely and peaceful and a gorgeous setting. Chris made us very welcome and it was interesting listening to him talk about how the railway carriage had developed. we really enjoyed staying in the carriage.
