    About this property

    Sample something quite different! Two wonderfully restored railway carriages as a fantastic holiday base with use of a hot tub and swimming pool nearby.
    Tucked away on the site of the Mid Suffolk Light Railway track bed, 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 5 converted railway carriages, enjoying panoramic views across rolling countryside.
    The Station House (ref E5336) is the centrepiece of a collection of steam railway-themed accommodation in a quiet location in the Suffolk countryside. It is a comfortable, three-bedroom, self-catering, detached, traditional station building, typical of the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway. With one double and two twin bedded rooms, it can house up to six adults.
    Railway Carriage One (ref E5337) is an authentic, beautifully restored Mid-Suffolk Light Railway carriage on the Brockford Sidings site. It is a compact but airy carriage with a living room and kitchen area, and sleeps four in comfort. There is a double bedroom and a second sleeping area with two short bunk beds suitable for children. It is a delightful, well-appointed carriage and offers unique holiday accommodation for families and couples in the heart of Suffolk. The open plan small kitchen is well-stocked and has a hob, oven, microwave and TV. The carriage has single step access from the easy access rail platform, and boasts great views across the countryside and good outside space.
    Railway Carriage Two (ref E5601) is the largest carriage at Brockford Siding, and has accommodation for up to six people. It is a well-appointed and spacious carriage with two bedrooms, one double, one with two bunk beds, and a further sofa bed in the living area to sleep two. Comfortable and homely, it is perfect for families, couples or friends, and it enjoys splendid views across the open countryside. The open plan living area, and an adjoining kitchen, allows families or friends to spread out, relax and enjoy their holiday together. The carriage is furnished with a comfortable sofa and chairs to provide a pleasant sitting area.
    The Guard’s Van (E5639) 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.
    The Italian Carriage (UKC3492) offers accommodation for up to four people. Beautifully restored floor boardS and the neutral grey tones give a very European feel to this carriage. At one end you will find a bunk room, sleeping two people and the other a double bed in the master room. In the centre of the carriage is an open plan seating and kitchen area. The carriage enjoys its own patio and seating area.
    Wilby Halt (ref UKC712) is a quirky and unusual property is split over two restored railway carriages. Linked by a railway platform, the first carriage houses the living space including kitchen and comfortable living room. The second carriage is the sleeping carriage where you will find the double bedroom and further room with bunk bed and single bed. This really is a unique experience and perfect for families.
    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, ¾ mile away, is available and is heated throughout the summer months and often longer. There is also a hot tub and sauna.

    "Super manager who showed us round and gave us information. Without her we would never have know about the Jazz and cider night across the road at the railway station. A night not to be missed! The children enjoyed the playground equipment and the quirky bedrooms. We didn't use the pool and hot tub as we had a action packed weekend but it looked amazing"

    "Our second weekend break to Brockford Railway Sidings and we absolutely love it. Perfect accommodation for a nice quiet relaxing break where we can regroup as a family. Kids love the grounds, swing set and badminton, take their own footie and chill out in the sun whilst in nice safe surroundings letting us parents watch them with a nice vino."

    "We were very glad of the tea coffee milk and yummy cake on arrival. Everything that we needed for our stay was at wilby halt. Great swimming pool ,lovely people. Would definitely return."
    Mark ‐ 9 Aug 2018
    "Loved the place was something different. Is situated well for days out. Owner and manager were very welcoming. The cake was yummy. Only thing that let it down was local shop at debenham seemed overpriced but it was only a short drive to stowmarket for supermarket. There is alot of history in the area if you research the counties if you like that kind of thing. Norfolk and suffolk are very nice to drive round with the georgian style houses. All in all a very lovely holiday"

    "Very Quirky, friendly people, great pool and hot tub, well worth a stay, would like to go back when nearby steam train museum is operating trains."
