Full description

All aboard a grand, lovingly restored railway carriage that's perfect for peaceful off-grid living in the enchanting Cornish countryside.

Stationed in rural Saint Austell, The Siphon is a perfect base for exploring Cornwall's many attractions, including the Eden Project, Heligan Gardens, and of course, those amazing surfing beaches.

But that's if you make it that far!  Once you've experienced the joyous calm and relaxation that off-grid living brings, you may find it hard to re-adjust.

The Siphon is a grand, historic railway carriage that has been cleverly converted into three separate bedrooms, plus a sociable living and dining area with a crackling wood-burning stove - ideal for warming those toes by evening!  Meanwhile, there are plenty of original features that hark back to the carriage's past, including the beautiful wooden doors.

By day, why not while away some time on the raised decking, surrounded by valley views and a chorus of birdsong?  There's plenty of wildlife to spot, too, including the resident deer, otters and badgers.

First class for warmth and comfort, you can fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the river, wishing you could end every single day just like this.
