THE GUARDS VAN Cottage
2 bedrooms, sleeps 4

Tucked away on the site of the Mid Suffolk Light Railway trackbed, close to the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Museum, these delightful and unique holiday properties are based on the railway theme: one a station building plus three converted railway carriages, enjoying panoramic views across rolling countryside. The Guard’s Van is to be found on Brockford Siding’s 2-acre site, in a quiet location in the heart of Suffolk. It comprises of an original guard’s van and box wagon from the Mid Suffolk Light Railway and offers two comfortable bedrooms for four people, with a double and two single beds.

It has a delightful living and dining room with comfortable, upholstered bench seats which retain the original feel of the carriage. There is a small kitchen and shower room. The Guard’s Van has stepped access and boasts great views across the countryside and good outside space. It is surrounded by country lanes and farmland, making it an ideal location for those who enjoy cycling, walking and/or relaxing and getting away from it all. It is centrally located, so it is also a great destination for those who want to sample what Suffolk has to offer.

The owner’s own swimming pool, ½ a mile away, is available and is heated throughout the summer months and often longer. There is also a hot tub and sauna. Local amenities can be found in the pretty village of Debenham only 4 miles away, which has some lovely shops, pubs and cafés, as well as a local supermarket and leisure centre.
