    Railway Carriage Two (ref E5601) is the largest carriage at Brockford Siding, and has accommodation for up to six people.

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.

    "An amazing holiday was had by my son and I. He is train mad and absolutely loved staying here. He is now trying to decide which one next. The swimming pool, hot tub and sauna were amazing and only either a short walk or very short drive away. The carriages were spotless and the cake was scrummy.Judy and her husband were the best, always there should we need them."

    "Excellent quirky cosy getaway from it all place with real peace and quiet."
    Julia ‐ 21 Aug 2019
    "The carriages were small but quirky and contained everything that you could need for a week's holiday. They were very clean and the beds were very comfy. We loved visiting the Middy Bar on the Friday evening and eating Turkish style food from the food van. Went back to ride on the steam train and have a drink in the bar on the Sunday.Only negative is that the leisure facilities need an overhaul - there are no toilets, nowhere to get changed (apart from a very small cordoned off area by the swimming pool) and with so many plants growing through the roof, there were flies everywhere which got into the pool and the hot tub."

    "AN UNUSUAL DOG FRIENDLY PROPERTY IN A LOVELY PEACEFUL LOCATION.THE OWNERS ARE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL."
    Rachael ‐ 7 Jul 2019
    "Enjoyed it very much great facilities with the pool and hot tub nearby. Bit too far from the coast but that was more of an error from our part. It was a lovely peaceful place and very clean. If you have a dog then be aware you arent enclosed and it gets very hot in the carriage so not great for the 4 legged friends...made ours a bit grumpy but all in all we had a great time."
    Tracey ‐ 5 Jun 2019
    "Fabulous. Having access to a pool and cake on arrival just made it."
    S ‐ 6 Apr 2019
    "Had a lovely time. Very quirky. Peaceful & dog friendly. Definitely recommend."
    Jesamine ‐ 23 Feb 2019
    "We had an excellent time at Brockford Sidings, the host Judy was so thoughtful and staying in Wilby Halt was an amazing experience that we definitely will come back to! Highly recommend it!"
    Laura ‐ 30 Jan 2019
    "A fantastic stay, the carriage is beautiful and restored very tastefully and in keeping with the theme. The beds are so comfy and the cake was a wonderful touch. We are hoping to stay again in the warmer months."
    Paul ‐ 25 Nov 2018
    "Excellent would certainly go back"
