So for Pipe Dream, we took the base of an old rusty pipe wagon and built on it a brand new home from home that’s wider than your average train!

Sleeping up to four (two adults and two children under 12), Pipe Dream is fully equipped and comes complete with a panoramic view across the Rother Valley to Kent and an outdoor area for barbecues and listening to the trains go by…
Pipe Dream includes a double bedroom, bunk bedroom, shower room/WC, full kitchen with sink, oven, hob, fridge, kettle & toaster. Lounge area with TV, sofa and dining table.

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.

The exteriors are painted in period colours and we retain as many original features as possible.
