Sample something quite different! Two wonderfully restored railway carriages as a fantastic holiday base with use of a hot tub and swimming pool nearby.

This quirky and unusual property is split over two restored railway carriages. Linked by a railway platform, the first carriage houses the living space including kitchen and comfortable living room. The second carriage is the sleeping carriage where you will find the double bedroom and further room with bunk bed and single bed. This really is a unique experience and perfect for families. The property boasts great views across the countryside and is surrounded by country lanes and farmland, making it an ideal location for those who enjoy cycling, walking 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 indoor swimming pool (8.5m x 4.3m, depth 0.9m to 1.8m) is ½ mile away and is available to use. It is open all year, heated May-Sep and with private use by arrangement; there is also a shared hot tub. Local amenities can be found in the pretty village of Debenham only 4 miles away which also has a 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 restaurant 4 miles, pub 1½ miles. This property can be booked together with Railway Carriage One (E5337), Railway Carriage Two (E5601), The Guard’s Van (E5639) and The Station House (E5336) to accommodate up to 25 guests.

    Fantastic and unique. We had a great time in the carriage and the use of the pool was brilliant. The owners could not be nicer.

    I was expecting high hopes from this last minute holiday, and it pretty much delivered. The train carriages are great, full of character and great fun to stay in. Exclusive use of a swimming pool/sauna/jacuzzi seals the deal. Also tennis is available. We were met by the most lovely lady who couldn't have helped us more. She also cleans all the carriages, and is a real asset to the place. Minus points- not many. I heard what I thought was a wasps nest in the roof of our train carriage. But nope,it turned out to be a pair of hornets that decided to wage war on me on the last night, after I was slightly worse for wear returning from the Light Railway train carriage pub on our last Friday. Furiously fighting them off with a dustpan brush and a can of Raid (kindly supplied in the carriage) I managed to bat them to the ground, and remove them outside (where they were still trying to sting me!) Hopefully they will not return on your holiday. They are surprisingly large (like mini apache helicopter gunships). - There needs to be a little more for the kids to do - one slide and swing is not quite enough - Also the WIFI never worked - but I believe it will be fixed soon.

    What a fantastic place to stay! When we stayed there were 4 other families and the children all played together safely in the grounds and we could relax. The accommodation was spot on, lovely attention to detail and very clean. Use of the owners swimming pool was great. Couldn't ask for more. We hope to return next year.
