Description

'Oscar' is a cleverly converted authentic 1962 Derby-built Mk.1 railway carriage, standing on its original track bed alongside the old platform within its own grounds and garden. The carriage has been fully refurbished and is fully air-conditioned, heated and has all main services, and is one of two properties at Cloughton Station, a Victorian country station built in 1885.  On the line from Whitby to Scarborough, it included a cattle dock, goods shed, passing line, coal weighbridge and level crossing. The line is now disconnected, leaving a more peaceful setting for the properties and nearby tearoom.  Scarborough, about five miles away, provides high street shopping, a Sea-Life Centre and beaches. Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are within easy reach if you prefer a quieter environment.

Reviews

It was the perfect place for us to stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful - they even helped us to spring the surprise on our grandchildren (they didn't know they were going to stay in the train carriage). The heating was very effective and easy to control. I understand it is also an air conditioning unit. The tearoom next door serves delightful scones.Mrs C Clarke - 17th November 2015
The property is well cared for and spotless and the owner very friendly. The location is also good for our holiday needs.Mr S Morris - 24th August 2015
An absolutely fabulous place to stay! We loved it!Mrs P Bayston - 19th July 2015
