Beautifully restored traditional railway carriage and roadman's van, with views across the rolling hills and fields of rural Dorset
High Cross Camping Coach and Living Van is listed in affiliation with Vrbo.
This traditional railway carriage in the Dorset countryside has been thoughtfully restored to create a truly unique holiday home. Complete with lovely authentic details like brass lamps and sliding sash windows it offers real old-fashioned craftsmanship coupled with modern luxury. Alongside the railway carriage is a roadman's van, which provides extra living space and sleeping accommodation.
High Cross Camping Coach and Living Van are situated in the little village of Whitecross in rural Dorset. They have their own small enclosed garden, sited behind the owner's garden. It's a rural, peaceful spot with beautiful views across the Dorset meadows and fields to the distant hills and spectacular sunsets.
Inside the railway carriage you'll find a cosy saloon area, with a little dining table, a carriage seating-style sofa and a stove to keep you snug on chilly evenings. When you're ready to turn in for the night, the carriage seat folds out into a large and comfortable bed for two. There's a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, sink, fridge and ample worktop space. The bathroom has a normal domestic type loo and an electric shower.
A few steps across the garden is the roadman's van. This is a pretty hut with a pastel painted interior, which offers extra living space during the day, with a table and seating. By night the van provides sleeping space and can be turned into either a double bed or two singles - perfect for kids.
