The Details...

Step aboard this vintage Railway Carriage for an unforgettable journey amongst the beautiful English countryside. With a memorable spot just beside the West Somerset Steam Railway, it is a magical place for a quirky, country adventure. Watch the majestic locomotives chug through the open fields leaving a puff of smoke to scatter through the idyllic scenes. With an endless amount to see and do, it is the place for spell-binding jaunts and train-spotting talk.

The replica Great Western Brake Van is set within a peaceful West Somerset location and has enchanting pastoral views rolling far off into the distance. Its natural green finish blends in seamlessly with the backdrop and is a luxurious hideaway in a heavenly setting. Sit out on your pretty veranda and listen for the whirring of the wheels, before jumping in the hot tub and soaking up the picturesque scenes. With striking buzzards and sparrow-hawks to be seen soaring in the sky, you can watch Mother Nature blossom before your very eyes.

Beyond the rustic exterior of the classic brake cabin lies a sophisticated, country-style interior. Light oak floors are joined by neutral cream walls, while historic train signs add to its characterful design. The long, open-plan living and dining area has a contemporary kitchen, along with quality wood furniture and comfy leather sofas. Balcony doors open out onto the tranquil veranda, where a small table and chairs overlook the deluxe hot tub area.

A sumptuous master bedroom can also be found in the carriage, along with a cosy twin and a modern bathroom. Both the master double and the twin room have views over the railway and are snug retreats with super-soft furnishings.

Somerset is well known for its glorious vistas and has lush rural expanses and golden sandy beaches. Stunning coastal paths can take you to secluded coves and surfing havens, while the wild Quantock Hills can treat you to a rich view of nature. The magnificent steam trains are part of the longest heritage railway in England and can take you on a spectacular trip through the captivating landscape. The bustling town of Taunton is also just a few miles away, along with the charming seaside town of Lyme Regis.
