This very unusual unique hotel is made up of railway carriages , with a central bar and reception area. Great place to relax and stay. Trains close by but seemed inaudible at night.

The breakfast was delicious. All freshly cooked and so much on a plate! Would definitely recommend. Vegetarians catered for. Also As much continental as you want and is all served in individual carriages with really nice view of garden and passing trains.
