You’ll always remember your time at this unique place to stay.

Inside, you’ll discover a wealth of character-filled spaces, including a reception hall adorned with exposed studwork and an exquisite eighteenth-century staircase. The drawing room captivates with its tall sash windows, ornate ceiling beams, and a grand inglenook fireplace, while the sitting room offers views of Castle Street and features a marble fireplace. Transition seamlessly to the garden room, styled in Arts and Crafts fashion, with its arched glazed doors leading to the terrace.

The open-plan kitchen, breakfast room, and dining area blend classic Georgian aesthetics with modern functionality, featuring painted cabinetry, wood countertops, and an Aga stove. Descend to the medieval cellar or retreat to the cloakroom for added convenience.

Upstairs, the first floor beckons with three double bedrooms, including a master suite with sea views, dressing area, and en suite bath/shower room. The attic level unveils three additional spacious rooms and a bath/shower room, perfect for accommodating larger groups.

Outside, the meticulously manicured garden presents a sanctuary of tranquility, complete with a flagstone terrace, expansive lawn, and a variety of flora including roses, hydrangeas, and olive trees. A greenhouse, garden store, and compost bins offer practical amenities, while private access to the High Street ensures convenience.

Anyone who travelled by train from the 1950s to the 1980s will be very familiar with our Mark One coach. Thousands were built by British Railways complete with their trademark slam doors and sliding window vents, and several still run on our Kent & East Sussex Railway neighbours.

‘Plum and Custard’ is just one of the nicknames given to the cream and maroon livery for coaching stock in the early days of British Railways. Our coach was originally a restaurant car on the London Midland Region, serving meals and drinks for both first and second class passengers and seating 23 diners.
This beautifully-converted railway carriage caters for up to six people for the perfect getaway. It has two double bedrooms (one with an en-suite), a family bathroom with a bath and shower, a bunk bedroom for kids, a full kitchen with induction hob, oven, microwave and fridge freezer and an open plan lounge and dining area with a TV and DVD player.

Gas central heating will keep you nice and warm in the winter months and a complimentary welcome hamper is provided too. A travel cot and a high chair can also be provided for the little ones.

Allocated parking for up to three cars is available directly outside.

We are located in the beautiful Rother Valley on the Kent and East Sussex border in Northiam.

Located near Bodiam, Tenterden, Rye and Hastings, the carriages provide a fantastic base for you to explore the local countryside and coast with attractions and activities to suit everyone.

The carriages are situated within Northiam Steam Railway Station, a working station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway line. You don’t even need to leave the carriages to get the full railway experience as the steam trains will pull up at the station just over 20ft away.

We have painstakingly given some wonderful, care-worn rolling stock an exciting new life as modern, clean, inviting bases for you to relax in. We carry out as much of the work ourselves as we can, transforming the interiors into unique quirky spaces. The exteriors are painted in period colours and we retain as many original features as possible.

We recommend that you arrive by car and there is plenty of parking at the property. The nearest mainline train stations are Rye and Hastings with connecting buses to Northium.
