Sleep in a Train Carriage

Posted By Guru4Travel on Jul 17, 2017 at 9:18AM

Sleep in a railway carriage - latest availability and steam news.

The Railholiday team has been busy working on Millpool, their new carriage for wheelchair users. They've also been creating new paths and habitats in the woods to optimize wildlife benefits while doing their best to avoid the temptation to go to the beach (at least for a few days of the week...)

As usual, they're pretty busy with bookings this year but do still have some availability.

You may be lucky to see a steam train during your stay. The Cornishman steam train, going to Penzance, passes on Monday the 29th May. Bodmin Railway have Tornado 60163 visiting from the 1st to the 4th June and are selling tickets now. More information is available on http://bodminrailway.co.uk .


Harvey of Hayle is available for a six day break from the 13th May, and a 5 day break from the 22nd. For week breaks there's a week from the 10th June, and then two weeks from the 26th August.

Sleep in a Train Carriage

The Old Luggage Van has very little availability, but there is still some. There is a three day break from Friday 21st July, the week beginning the 18th August, and weeks or short breaks from the 20th October onwards.
Millpool - the team are working hard on the next carriage, which is designed for wheelchair users and are taking bookings from the 16th October onwards.
It's time to enjoy the great outdoors...
Spring is the best of times for the garden, and it's warm enough to enjoy outside barbecues.



Mevy has availability for a short break from the 9th June, then availability for weeks or short breaks from the 19th June until mid July. Mevy is particularly good for bird watching, and there's lots of bird activity at the moment, so do bring a camera!

The Travelling Post Office
Unusually there is quite a bit of school holiday availability for the Travelling Post Office.

Late Availability - the TPO for up to ten days from the 5th June.
Due to a cancellation the Travelling Post Office has become available. This is the only available break in the TPO until late July. It's a beautiful time of year, and Cornwall is not yet too busy. Railholiday are happy to offer week or short breaks stays during the available ten days. This is the carriage Michael Portillo stayed in while filming the first series of Great British Railway Journeys.

First availability is for 6 days from the 21st July. Then there's 4 days from the 31st, and the week beginning the 18th August. There are also three short breaks in September; four nights from the 11th and 18th and a three night break from the 29th.


Christmas and New Year
Harvey of Hayle is fully booked for the Christmas and New Year period, but Railholiday do still have availability in the St Germans carriages.

New cafe and wine bar for St Germans - Scholars
A new wine bar has opened in the village offering breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and more. For those of you who know St Germans it is in the building previously known as the Long Gallery.
