This is a once in a lifetime experience. Converted from a former railway carriage and based at the former station in Hawsker, this cottage sleeps six people in character accommodation.

This is a holiday cottage like no other. Converted from a railway carriage and based on the old station at Hawsker in North Yorkshire, this cottage has character written all over it. Six people can be accommodated in three bedrooms. The master double room has an en-suite shower and WC as well as a single chair bed suitable for a child. There is a double, cabin style room (with the bed accessed from one side only) and a twin bunk bed room which is suitable for children, making this the perfect cottage for a family holiday that no child will ever forget. Also within the cottage is a separate shower room with WC and fitted kitchen with breakfast bar. The sitting room is made up with “first class” railway carriage seats so that you can pretend you are rolling along whilst watching television. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this amazing cottage, then the North Yorkshire Moors are just a few miles drive away as well as the famous old fishing village at Robin Hood's Bay and the historic town of Whitby, making this an incredible holiday for all the family.


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.

An excellent location, the facilities were great, and it was lovely and clean. The Carriage has been done to an excellent standard. The beds were comfy, the towels were nice and there was plenty of crockery. It was a holiday with a difference, would definitely recommend.
Mrs Hardy

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!!

The Converted Railway Carriage exceeded all our expectations. It is a unique experience set in the most beautiful surroundings and we will definitely be booking again.
Mrs Lane

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!
