Our holiday carriage Mevy has been finished to the highest standard and has several features unique to the coach, including a sumptuous first class bedroom compartment, a proper bath with ball and claw feet and a traditional cooker in the kitchen. Mevy is very warm in winter as it is centrally heated by our wood fuelled biomass boiler. Mevy is one of four carriages in St Germans owned by Railholiday, a community rooted, green hearted business with an eye for comfort and sustainability. With locally crafted furniture, fresh garden flowers, Good Energy electricity and pollinator friendly flower beds, Mevy proves that you don't have to sacrifice luxury to have an eco friendly holiday.
