St Ives Bay SK2

The perfect choice for a memorable holiday in South Cornwall. The St Ives Bay SK2 can accommodate parties of six in the West end; eight in the East end or larger groups of up to fourteen if both ends are hired together.

This beautiful railway carriage has been converted into self catering holiday accommodation and is sure to provide a wonderful, unique holiday experience where you can watch plenty of trains and relax.

Situated in the former goods yard, adjacent to the platform in the coastal town station of Hayle, West Cornwall, the station is on the Cornish main line and is only one stop away from the branch line to St Ives.

The carriage is a BR Mark 1 Corridor Second number SK25355 built in 1957. It has been converted into holiday accommodation and retains almost all of its wonderful original features including all the compartments, luggage racks, the lamp shades, mirrors, blinds and upholstery.

Hayle is the perfect place for a family holiday where there are lots of things to do for all ages. It is famous for its three miles of beautiful sandy beach and is located on the opposite side of St Ives Bay. The bay starts at the mouth of the estuary which is well known for being a good spot for birdwatchers and there are a good selection of restaurants and pubs in the area.

Since the advent of the railway, Cornwall has been an increasingly popular holiday destination. The wealth of beautiful beaches; dramatic coastlines; attractions including the Eden Project; pretty fishing villages; historic houses; mild climate, breathtaking coastal walks and the beautiful landscape and rolling countryside make this a fantastic holiday destination.

With too many popular attractions to mention - why not visit the owners website where you will find extensive information to help you plan your holiday.
