Camping Coach

Sleeps 2

The Camping Coach itself is part of a Victorian Carriage for the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway, now over 100 years old. Converted into a living accommodation on iron wheels many years ago, it was restored by its current owners into fully self-contained holiday accommodation. As you climb the steps and turn the chunky brass door handle, you climb aboard into another era.

The inside of the carriage retains many original features reminiscent of the glory days of steam railways, including gleaming brass luggage racks and leather window straps.

Restored with enormous attention to detail, the carriage has a delightful atmosphere all of its own. A fold-out double bed, provides a wonderfully comfortable place to sleep.

The Camping Coach has a fully equipped kitchen with a three-ring gas cooker, a small electric fridge and a Belfast sink set in a black slate work surface. There is also a peep hole view through a traditional ship’s porthole so that you can admire the view whilst you are cooking!

The bathroom has an electric shower (with masses of hot water) a flushing loo, small hand basin and heated towel rail, and it too has a wonderful view!

To keep you warm, there is an original French Art Nouveau stove in one corner of the saloon, and a wall mounted electric heater. If you are still cold there are hot water bottles!

The Camping Coach offers a brilliant place to relax and take a break from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Although it has been equipped to provide contemporary facilities, a striking feature of the carriage is the amount of care and attention that has been given to every detail. Many of original features have been retained whilst other more recent additions have been carefully selected to enhance the character and atmosphere of the interior. Take your seat and travel into another age!
