Tickets please – Three train carriages provide holiday accommodation with a difference

 

Owned by “devoted DIY-ers” David and Lizanne Southworth since 2005, the property stands in 1.4 acres of gardens and paddocks. It was originally a station on the Derwent Valley Light Railway – known also as the ‘Blackberry Line’ due to it being used by individuals who travelled to the country on it to pick berries – between Cliffe and York and opened in 1912. The line closed in 1985 after agricultural traffic significantly declined.

 

The three carriages on-site were purchased by Mr and Mrs Southworth at auction and converted to provide sleeping accommodation for four to six people. Featuring original features such as luggage racks, they prove popular with tourists visiting North Yorkshire and railway enthusiasts.

  1. A fun place to holiday. No idea of the turnover and profit is indicated but as a train enthusiast myself, I think this is a great buy.

  2. Another fine candidate for the wrecking ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Truly horrific in my humble opinion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Not really my cuppa tea, however I bet there are some lovely original features in that old station house worth preserving. How did they put the figure of 795 grand on it, is it a going concern?
    Love to know what they payed for it back in 2005.

  4. The reason there are three carriages as I am sure you are aware, is that as the carriages are technically mobile, no planning is required for up to three on your land.
