Property code: 87102

Enjoy the tranquillity of the great outdoors in this converted railway carriage complete with a beautifully hand-crafted bed and within half an hour from North Norfolk's stunning coastline.

Soak up the Norfolk sunshine outside this exquisite former railway carriage in North Norfolk. Nestled in beautiful scenery at Burgh, 2 miles from Aylsham, the one-bedroom holiday home sleeps two guests and could be ideal for a couple looking for a tranquil break. Stroll out on long walks through the Norfolk countryside or plan trips to the coast, 11.5 miles away. Visit the Norfolk Broads, where you can hire a boat in Wroxham, 10 miles away, or have a day out in the historic city of Norwich, 12.5 miles from the retreat.

Arrive at this character-filled abode, with its handcrafted interior and take two steps up into its welcoming, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner/bedroom. Put the kettle on for a cup of tea, prepare dinner then choose whether to eat inside or out. Spend your evenings looking up at the stars, barbecuing in the shared hut where there is a fire pit, or just reading quietly and relishing the peace. As night falls, head over to the comfortable double bed. Awake to a hot shower before making coffee and planning the next adventure. Savour the privacy of your own courtyard, where you can spot wildlife in the pond and birds in the trees. The railway carriage comes with parking for one car.

Make your way into Aylsham to catch a nostalgic, narrow-gauge steam train into Wroxham, passing through splendid countryside on the way. Head up to the North Norfolk coast to Cromer (11.5 miles) or Sheringham (15.5 miles). Visit magnificent Sheringham Park, laid out by renowned landscape designer Humphry Repton. Have an afternoon out in Blakeney, 19 miles away, where you can take a boat trip out to see the colonies of grey seals, stroll along the coast path and buy fresh seafood to grill on the BBQ when you return.

This quaint lovingly restored railway carriage was the perfect retreat for a solo week away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, the setting was lovely and quiet, and the location was ideal for exploring. I was welcomed warmly by the owner, Jo and Pilot, the dog. I will definitely be coming back, thank you Jo

We had a wonderful stay in the LAST carriage, the facilities were ample for the duration of our stay. The only downside with the property is that you cannot easily walk into Aylsham albeit this did not stop us from enjoying what the local village/town had to offer. Would recommend this property for a lovely tranquil, relaxing break. Not too far to Read morethe nearest coast(s) very easily accessible. Hide

Well executed quirky and stylish accommodation in a very peaceful spot. Do be aware it's quiet because it's remote so no shops or pubs within walking distance and no WiFi. We enjoyed our 4 night stay.

The holiday was just what I wanted, peaceful and quiet. The carriage was really great just as the photos show. The countryside around was really lovely and only a few miles from the beach. I would recommend to anyone, perfect for a single or a couple. Another time I would like to stay in the first. Thanks Jo I enjoyed my stay so much
