Set on a picturesque Welsh hillside is a lovingly converted old railway carriage, blending memories of the golden railway age with homely comfort. The carriage retains all the old carriages character and charm, while incorporating the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Internally, a cozy living area is perfect for unwinding by the wood-burning stove after a day of exploring the Welsh hillsides.
Reminiscent of a bygone era the carriage has been lovingly restored using traditional materials and techniques to create a warm comfortable holiday let which blends comfortably with the surrounding landscape.
The project was designed from first principals to have minimal environmental impact. The locally sourced carriage provides the basic shell whilst composting toilets and a hot water and heating system powered by fuel grown on site provide a minimal ongoing environmental footprint.
