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

The Guard’s Van is to be found on Brockford Siding’s 2-acre site, in a quiet location in the heart of Suffolk. It comprises of an original guard’s van and box wagon from the Mid Suffolk Light Railway and offers two comfortable bedrooms for four people, with a double and two single beds. It has a delightful living and dining room with comfortable, upholstered bench seats which retain the original feel of the carriage. There is a small kitchen and shower room. The Guard’s Van has stepped access and boasts great views across the countryside and good outside space. It is surrounded by country lanes and farmland, making it an ideal 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.

    Loved staying at the guards van. Very cosy cut and quaint. It was only myself and my husband but we could easily have taken the grandkids. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great place to stay and kids made friends with others on the site. Would potentially consider the bigger carriages or station house next time. Use of the swimming pool and hot tub facilities were fantastic. The greeting on arrival was appreciated and the gift pack of essentials, including cake, were welcome

    Perfect! It was the break we needed such a beautiful and peaceful location. The access to the pool made it even better. Plenty to do in the local area.

    Fabulous location, quiet and restful but central enough for visits to various Natioanl Trust properties. Staying in the guards van was a delight, so compact but comfortable and well equipped. We were met by Jane who was helpful and informative. Definitely plan to return and will recommend to friends.
