Description

Tucked away on the site of the Mid Suffolk Light Railway trackbed, close to the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Museum, these delightful and unique holiday properties are based on the railway theme: one a station building plus three converted railway carriages, enjoying panoramic views across rolling countryside

Railway Carriage One is an authentic, beautifully restored Mid-Suffolk Light Railway carriage on the Brockford Siding site. It is a compact but airy carriage with a living room and kitchen area, and sleeps four in comfort. There is a double bedroom and a second sleeping area with two short bunk beds suitable for children. It is a delightful, well-appointed carriage and offers unique holiday accommodation for families and couples in the heart of Suffolk. The open plan small kitchen is well-stocked and has a hob, oven, microwave and TV. The shower room has a good-sized shower, toilet and basin. The carriage has single step access from the easy access rail platform, and boasts great views across the countryside and good outside space. It is surrounded by country lanes and farmland, making it an idea location for those who enjoy cycling, walking and/or relaxing and getting away from it all. It is centrally located, so it is also a great destination for those who want to sample what Suffolk has to offer. The owner’s own swimming pool, ½ a mile away, is available and is heated throughout the summer months and often longer. There is also a hot tub and sauna. Local amenities can be found in the pretty village of Debenham only 4 miles away, which has some lovely shops, pubs and cafés, as well as a local supermarket and leisure centre. The beautiful village of Mendlesham, 1½ miles, has a pub, post office, local store and bakery. It is within a short walk of the Mid-Suffolk Railway Museum, with steam trains at weekends in summer. Shop and pub 2 miles.

    Lovely place to stay but cat essential, nearest village 10 minutes away. Fantastic facilities in the carriage, everything you could need.

    Lovely quirky accommodation. Everything we needed for a self catering break was already there, including lovely cake and a warm welcome. We were the only guests so had the whole area to ourselves and saw some lovely wildlife and nice walks. Info on where to go and eat was in the carriage and was useful as you need a car as there is no eating/pubs or shops within walking distance . Pool and hot tub was fantastic! The area is very pretty and if you want a quiet get away this is perfect . The double bed is very comfy and fixed against the walls , so my tall ( 6'3") partner could not stretch out , however it was very cosy , clean and quiet.

    Location and accommodation good . Our week was extremely hot and carriage difficult to cool and ventilate. Another time we would select more spacious accommodation. As an elderly couple it was somewhat difficult for one of us to get out of bed without disturbing the other.
