About Railway Carriage and Railway Cottage

Fancy somewhere quirky overlooking the West Somerset Steam Railway? Stay in the fabulous Railway Carriage with hot-tub for something different or in the Railway Cottage overlooking the steam railway with log burning fire and private hot-tub if you like your creature comforts. Both properties are luxurious and ideal for families of all ages and for creating childhood memories!

Railway Carriage

The Railway Carriage just as it says on the tin, a purpose built railway carriage made into a holiday home. With a shaker style kitchen with dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge freezer, electric oven and gas hob; a dining room, cosy lounge with comfy sofa, plasma tv with freesat and DVD opening onto the veranda with it's own hot-tub. There are two bedrooms, beautifully decorated - the master with a Kingsize bed and views over the railway and the second with two single beds. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over, Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy towels, bathrobes and toiletries included. The Railway Carriage would suit a family with up to two children and a baby.

The Railway Carriage is next to the West Somerset Steam Railway - ideal for watching the magnificent locomotives go by. The stunning Quantock Hills fill the landscape, buzzards and sparrowhawks can be seen majestically soaring above.

The views from the Railway Carriage are stunning lying close to the railway line itself, what could be better for either children or train spotters of all ages than the magnificent steam locomotives passing by.  You will not tire of seeing the beautiful steam trains pass by your holiday home.  

Railway Cottage

Railway Cottage was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel himself as he built the West Somerset Steam Railway.  It is a fabulous is a single storey stone cottage with period features, sleeping up to six plus a baby in three bedrooms and has two bathrooms.  

The shaker style kitchen has a belfast sink, dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge freezer, electric oven and ceramic hob. It also has wood and granite worktops. The Dining Area has a beautiful wood burner (logs provided) for those chilly evenings and the lounge has fabulous, comfy leather sofas again opening up onto the garden and hot tub. The three bedrooms, two with king-size beds and one with twin beds accomodate six people. The master has an en-suite shower room and views over the railway, whilst the other two bedrooms have wonderful views over the hills. The main bathroom has a magnificent period bath.

As with the Railway Carriage, you will never tire of watching the steam trains go by from the cottage.
