Full description

Take your family on a nostalgic journey, in a converted 1950s railway carriage stationed in the Scottish countryside.

Board The Carriage, a former working 1957 railway car, in a tranquil country setting that was once the Bridge of Dee station, near the historic Scottish town of Castle Douglas. 

Sleeping up to six people and two well-behaved pets, this is a wonderful stop for walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers alike, with scenic coastal walks and marked forest trails galore (and a handy on-site cycle store).

Your cosy accommodation is all on ground level, with a spacious living room featuring irresistibly comfy sofas and Freeview TV, and a compact, well-equipped kitchen area with an electric oven. Further along are three charmingly-decorated bedrooms; two ensuite doubles and one children's bunk room.

Sit and watch the world go by from your carriage's generous windows, or outside on the large, lawned garden over afternoon cocktails. You're in first-class accommodation now, so it's time to relax and indulge.
