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.


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

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

The property was in an ideal location and being a converted railway carriage meant that it gave an exciting twist to our holiday. The rooms were wonderful and clean, the amenities all excellent. Cycle hire, from another part of the train station, was given at a substantial reduction. The host made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Thank you to the owner, from all the family, for making our holiday so wonderful.
Mr Stuart

We are train fans, so for us, this property was ideal! The owner goes out of his way to ensure you are comfortable and have everything you need. The opportunity to hire bikes on site is real plus as you are right next to a cinder track.
Ms Parkes

A lovely friendly welcome and tour of the railway carriage including how to use various items such as heating/air conditioning and combi oven. Everything we needed was included in the price. Lovely setting.
Miss Forbes
