Hidden in the grounds of a farmhouse in Slindon village just outside Arundel is this glorious 100 year old railway carriage with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and living room/kitchen. Guests also have use of the private tennis court in the garden. The carriage is ideal for a single guest or couple but if you have younger children they would love it! The maximum number of guests allowed is 2 adults and 2 children.

The railway carriage is situated well away from the road in a tranquil and beautiful spot next to the tennis court in the garden, and adjacent to National Trust woods. The carriage is also located close to pony paddocks and stables on the other side of a fence, so will appeal to horse lovers – but if you are allergic to horses or their environment this probably isn’t the place for you!

The carriage has been lovingly restored and guests will appreciate the incredible attention to detail and pretty furniture. There is a table, chairs, a sofa and a small television in the living room, together with a cooking area with small combi oven/microwave, electric hob, sink, under counter fridge and simple cooking equipment. The master bedroom is small but has a full size 4ft 6ins bed and there is a bijou second bedroom with full size bunk beds.

The bathroom has a shower, a sink, a heated towel rail and a normal flushing loo (no chemical loo here!) but do be aware that this room is very compact, so is not suitable for very tall guests or those less mobile.

Adjacent to the railway carriage is ‘the station’ which guests may use on request if they would appreciate extra space for relaxing and watching TV. There is a larger table and chairs, a washing machine and an airer in this room.

Both the carriage and ‘the station’ have central heating and radiators throughout, so are also suitable for stays outside high summer.

There is no internet at the railway carriage but 4G works perfectly so guests can hotspot from their mobile. Wifi can be accessed in the garden nearer the farmhouse.

Guests are very welcome to borrow tennis rackets and balls and use the court. There is outside seating for guests to enjoy during the warmer months.

Slindon is a beautiful village between Chichester and Arundel. There is a village shop and café and a pottery shop. There are incredible walks right from the door either into National Trust Woods or up into the South Downs, the South Downs Way being around 3 miles away. The beach is about 15 minutes drive away.

Reviews

An amazing place to stay, with a friendly helpful host who will do anything to help whilst there. Really accommodating with the children. Great facilities and a great location with plenty to do. The tennis court helped keep the kids entertained and they had access to a large field where the host mowed them a cricket wicket! A great stay, highly recommended!

An amazing stay in fantastic accommodation. The train carriage has been beautify renovated/restored, with loads of lovely touches and original features. Our daughters (twins aged 4) had a great time, and the bunk beds were a real hit. The location is stunning, really quiet and next to horse paddocks. The girls enjoyed saying morning to the horses each day. There is also a tennis court next to the accommodation. We were kindly provided with tennis rackets and had a quick knock. The host is brilliant and really helped make our stay special. This included helping us find the accommodation when we arrived late on the first night and regularly checking everything was ok. I’d highly recommend a stay here and hope we can go back one day.
