The Camping Coach, originally a Victorian Carriage on the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway, is over 100 years old. Converted into living space many years ago, it has been restored by its current owners into fully self-contained holiday accommodation. Climb the steps, turn the chunky brass door handle, and climb aboard into another era.
Restored with enormous attention to detail, the carriage retains many original features reminiscent of the glory days of steam railways, including gleaming brass luggage racks and leather window straps
Pride of place goes to a fold-out double bed, providing a wonderfully comfortable place to sleep.
There’s also a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave/grill and 2 hob induction hob rings, and fridge, a Belfast sink set in a black slate work surface, and a porthole so you can admire the view as you cook.
The bathroom has an electric shower (with masses of hot water) a flushing loo, hand basin and heated towel rail, and it too offers wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.
To keep you warm, there is an original French Art Nouveau stove in one corner of the saloon, and a wall mounted electric heater, plus hot water bottles just in case!
The Camping Coach offers a brilliant place to relax and take a break from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Lovingly restored to combine contemporary facilities with original features, it offers a truly unique opportunity to leave modern life behind and enjoy the delights of another age.
