The accommodation that we offer is a railway carriage and Living van. The Carriage has been restored retaining many authentic carriage details like chunky carriage handles, brass lamps, window straps and sliding sash windows, combined with good quality modern comfort. The main saloon has a large seat which converts into a double bed and sleep two people, a small dining table and chairs and a fantastic fully restored French 'Monopole' circa 1910 coal stove, which will keep you warm on cold damp days and cold nights.

The bathroom has a normal water flush domestic type loo and electric shower.

The carriage sits within a small enclosed garden at the rear of the owners cottage garden. The view is beautiful...

We stayed here for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend. We loved every second! The camping coach is beautiful. The attention to detail is amazing and is clearly a Labour of love. The living van is also gorgeous and a lovely place to relax...More

About the neighbourhood
The camping coach sits snug in the rolling hills of West Dorset in a village called Netherbury, a delightful village of a population of about 300 people. There are no shops but the nearest is just 2 miles away which makes a very nice walk or drive and the nearest local pub 1 mile away in Waytown, again easily walked to across a wonderful county route. The village does offer peace and quiet and a place to get away from it all and relax with lovely views by day and spectacular stars on clear nights.
