A paradise for dog walkers, artists and bird watchers, this railway carriage offers you quirky accommodation in a dramatic and beautiful location.
Dungeness Carriage is listed in affiliation with Holiday Cottages.
This fascinating converted railway carriage offers stylish, light and airy accommodation for a quirky getaway in Britain’s only ‘desert’.
The front door at the side of the building opens into a small lobby area for leaving coats, boots, buckets and spades. Here you will also notice the original water pump, which has been retained as a character feature. The bright and airy space beyond is an open plan kitchen and dining room with a curved beamed ceiling, wooden flooring and large bi-folding doors flooding the space with natural light. The contemporary kitchen features an electric hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and cafetiere while the dining table for four sits next to the bi-folding doors to offer a spectacular view while dining.
In the lounge, a comfortable sofa and chair face a striking wall with a woodburner, where you can unwind while watching a film on the TV, listening to music on the CD player or make use of one of the board games.
The first bedroom has a double bed and is bright and spacious with a curved ceiling, white walls and large windows. The second bedroom has a single cabin bed, which can also be converted into a double, and has a telescope for admiring the pollution-free night sky. There is one family bathroom with shower over bath.
Decked areas line both sides of this property to provide spectacular vistas either side. Here, guests can sit at the original railway bench and driftwood table with a cup of coffee admiring Dungeness beach beyond.
The property is nestled on the shingle expanse of Dungeness, which boasts big dramatic skies, a beach and spectacular scenery set within a 468-acre nature reserve. Once you have finished exploring the area on foot, hop on the nearby Romney Hythe and Dymchurch railway to forge the Kent coastline or climb to the top of the Old Dungeness Lighthouse where, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to spot the French coastline.
