“A lovely, eccentric holiday let”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

We stayed here over Christmas. It was lovely. Hayle is a good location for arriving by train and exploring the Cornish coast. The carriange is equipped with a proper kitchen and bathroom, so it feels like luxurious camping. Highly reccomended.

We travelled from London to Hayle by train and it was the easiest holiday accomodation we have ever found..just off Hayle station.
We holidayed as an extended family including 2 dogs who all thought the sk1 and sk2 were fantastic.
We had everything that we needed for a brilliant holiday. There is ample secure parking and the garden is fully enclosed and extremely safe for the dogs.
The carriages were brilliant. The heating was fantastic and we never once felt cold.
The owners had left us loads of local provisions which were greatly appreciated.
I would highy recommend them as a very unusual holiday expierence.

Great place to stay with easy access to pretty much all of SW Cornwall. Catch a train along to penzance or St I'ves for a great day out. Great local amenaties in Hayle, you must pop into Philps for a pastie. Paradise park a great day out too. SK2 has everything you could need, even if you're not a train buff it's a great place to stay with a family.

A converted railway carriage standing in an enclosed garden just yards from Hayle main railway station.
Each room is a compartment and the coach makes a great basic base for exploring the many places that the area has to visit.
Carriage was clean, no contact from owners at any stage but milk and flowers on arrival.
Beds were a bit of a faff to construct (especially after a very long drive with 5 children!), but once up everyone slept fine for the week. A nice touch for train loving boys was the tall decking platform at one end of the coach where you can sit/stand and watch all the goings-on on Hayle station.
Two minutes walk from the coach there is a fabulous local bakery, a late opening convenience store and cash points.
The garden is very spacious but a little overgrown at the end, swings for the children and plenty of room. Our youngest is two and could negotiate the steps down from the carriage to the garden okay; any younger and it would have been a problem.
Noise from the trains and rain on the carriage roof at night could have been a problem but with long sunny days packed with activities we all slept for England.
