Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wanting to visit Peterborough train museum and wanted something different to stay in and came across this jem just on the outskirts of town and close to steamtown museum. A bnb where you stay in 1 of 2 historic rail carriages. Inexpensive for such history but very well appointed inside and well thought out. Lots of provisions offered in room with continental breakfast provided each day of your stay all ready in the room. Bed was so comfortable with lovely furniture inside to make your stay as homely as it can be. Set on a large property up a short dirt drive the property is set up with very friendly staff. We stayed in the Green and yellow carriage which I was hoping for. More because of the colour. Surrounds were almost defly quiet. With a few street lights seen in the distance. The perfect holiday stay for anyone wanting more for their stay and something different to share to all.

My husband & l stayed for 2 nights & what a very appropriate place to stay when you are visiting a railway town. We found our room very comfortable & well fitted out. A railway carriage divided into 2 units, only a few minutes drive from the main Rd, but peacefully quiet for a good nights sleep. Breakfast provisions were in the room, which was ample for breakfast each morning. The first night we enjoyed sitting outside having a wine on the deck & watching the sunset. On our second morning l was up bright & early watching the sunrise & l wasn't disappointed. Our hosts were very friendly & welcoming. I would highly recommend a stay at Off the Rails if you are visiting Peterborough.

Fabulous setting on a farm close to Peterborough. The morning was minus 1 frost it was beautiful, reminding us of years gone by in country living. Can highly recommend if you want country living experience. We will be back for a longer stay. 🙏👍

We'd been recommended to this place by our son, and we're so glad we took it up. The accommodation was situated just a 20 minute walk from Peterborough centre, but it seems as though we were miles from anywhere it was so quiet and peaceful. Our converted railway carriage was beautifully appointed with obvious care taken with the fittings and equipment. There were lovely touches like a bowl of lollies and chocolate set out for us and reading material that was not just interesting but very relevant to our surrounds: for example, a book of anecdotes about train travel in Australia in years gone by. A do it yourself light breakfast, along with different teas and plunger coffee was supplied, along with some very basic cooking equipment. The carriage was surprisingly spacious and warm and the free sunset and sunrise views were an added bonus. I heartily recommend Off the Rails to anyone who wants a quiet, comfortable escape.

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay in the rail carraige. The host was most welcoming and helpful and allowed me to fly my drone with hesitation. We were also allowed to take photos around the house with no restrictions. We had a great time there. Thanks Antoinette.

We were on our way back from Uluru going to Broken Hill & decided to get a cabin for the night. After googling Peterborough we came upon this enchanting place on a rural property out of town. Antoinette our host was one of the nicest , welcoming people I have ever met and it reflected in her cute little train carriages. Everything was thought of from a yummy do it yourself breakfast, chocolates by the bed etc. It was so quiet to sleep & still only few minutes from the main highway through town Also a bunk bed in the room in case you need for kids. Great price for the night , good parking if you have a trailer , it's worth staying

Such a great little place! Hidden just a few minutes out of town, this is one of the nicest places I have ever accidentally stumbled across. Highly recommended, especially for train enthusiasts but for everyone else who might like a stay in a great place with lovely hosts, the quietest nights and a million stars above

For 3 train buffs in the family this was a real novelty. They have done an amazing job in restoring the carriage, warm and clean inside. Room for the kids to run around outside. 2nd carriage still a work in progress.
