Converted Railway Carriage
Rail enthusiasts and intrepid explorers alike, take note: a break spent in the Converted Railway Carriage, perfectly stationed in the village of Hawsker, is a wonderful base for a holiday packed full of fresh adventure. Ideally situated in between the ancient port of Whitby and windswept Robin Hood's Bay, the beautiful North York Moors are also within easy reach.
Of course, you can rest assured that your unique accommodation is strictly first-class all the way! You'll find the fabulous Converted Rail Carriage, sleeping up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms, nestled alongside the Old Hawkser Railway's original platform. All accommodation is set on ground level and features breathtaking views of the Yorkshire Moors, with Whitby and the coast also visible just over fresh green fields.
The Old Hawkser Railway itself has also been beautifully converted from a working railway line to a 20-mile coastal walking and cycling trail, ideal for those who love to breathe in clear air as they while their way along the bracing coast...perhaps stopping by a few trailside pubs and cafes along the way, of course!
Inside your carriage, you'll discover plenty of touches that stay true to the original character of your luxurious surroundings, including sliding windows and plush, first-class railway seats in the lounge area. You'll also discover plenty of contemporary and imaginative furniture, fixtures and fittings that will ensure you have everything you need on board to make your stay a truly relaxing one.
You're guaranteed a truly unique holiday experience...after all, how many railway carriages have you ventured into that feature a separate living area, a stunning galley-style kitchen complete with breakfast bar, and a refreshing shower room? A furnished patio and lawned garden makes your stay complete, providing the perfect spot to enjoy the sun as it shines and sets, glass of something lovely in hand.
A cosy master double en-suite is your setting for endlessly lazy lie-ins aboard your indulgent sleeper, along with an additional cabin-style double and a bunk room. Once you've all indulged in a hearty breakfast it's time to explore the area in style, with cycle hire or purchase available at reduced rates. Traffic-free, all you need to do is enjoy the custom-designed route into the ancient port of Whitby or the windswept Robin Hood's Bay...with no need to try and find a parking space when you get there!
Of course, you can also spend plenty of time lazing on the sandy beach or strolling through the winding streets of atmospheric Whitby if you're not in the mood for more energetic walking and cycling - and you may find a freshly-caught fish and chip supper is an indulgent necessity.
So book your tickets well in advance for a unique and refreshing railside stay with plenty of exploration and adventure thrown in. All aboard!
