'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.

Railway carriage 'Oscar' was a unique and very pleasant place to stay. We were amazed at the planning and quality of this carriage conversion and equipment. Steve, the owner, was most welcoming and a mine of information. The fact that this property had been graded '4star' was no surprise. Excellent!
Cloughton is a small ancient village with stone houses situated around five miles away from Scarborough. It has had its share of famous visitors; her majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the Blacksmiths Arms pub in the village in 2010 for lunch during her trip to open the Open Air Theatre in Scarborough. There is a converted Victorian railway station in the village called Station House sitting on the former Whitby to Scarborough railway line. There is a good bus service, two pubs and one along the old cinder track at Hayburn Wyke.
