“Fantastic holiday in very novel accommodation”

The accommodation is none other than a complete converted railway carriage. There was loads of room inside and it was very comfortable, the master bedroom being quite large. The showers (his and hers), were very powerful and very hot, just the thing after a long day in the saddle. The carriage is situated right on the cinder path that runs from Whitby to Scarborough, and is ideally placed to explore the area by cycle or on foot. Keith, the host was very helpful and went out of his was to ensure we were happy and comfortable and had plenty to do. There are 2 great pubs only 10 minutes walk, both of which do excellent food. The charming town of Whitby is only 20 minutes bike ride away or a gentle 45 minutes walk along the traffic free cinder path.

“Great time”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a wonderful time here. Myself, daughter and 3 children.. Facilities were excellent. The owner was a very accommodating host. The location is excellent for visiting Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. Several good eating places nearby. On site cycle hire, which was very popular, with a cycle path which runs from Whitby to Scarbrough 17 miles. Sainburys supermarket half mile down the road for everyday essentials. Our highlight was a trip on North yorks Moors steam railway. Grosmont to Pickering £44 return for 2 adults and up to 4 children. We shall return!!

“A unique, brilliant experience”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A last-minute idea for New Year and it couldn't have worked out better, Every effort made to ensure our comfort, and we especially appreciated the fine kitchen and shower facilities - most unexpected in a railway carriage! Really conveniently located for both Whitby and Robin Hood Bay, and the cycle hire was just brilliant. Guess as train nuts we may be a little biased, but this really was an amazing place to stay - even in wintry January! If you are staying in the winter months, though, I would recommend furry footwear, as shoes are (quite reasonably) not allowed on the nice carpet, and though the place itself is plenty warm enough, the floor does get cold. Otherwise, just perfect - thanks for a wonderful time!
