Hidden in the scenic grounds of a farmhouse in Slindon village, near Arundel, is this glorious 100 year old railway carriage with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen as well as a larger living/playing area next to the carriage.  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 too!  The maximum number of guests allowed is four but do be aware that being a converted carriage some spaces are small.

 

The carriage has been lovingly restored and guests and will appreciate the high finish with incredible attention to detail. There is a table with 4 chairs, a sofa and a small television in the living room together with a bijou cooking area with 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 tiny 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 it may not suitable for those of a larger build or guests with restricted mobility.

 

Adjacent to the railway carriage is ‘the station’ which guests may use on request if they would appreciate extra space for relaxing, watching TV and playing one of the many board games we have available for family fun.  This is a really good size living room with a larger table and chairs, a washing machine and airer.

 

Both the carriage and ‘the station’ have central heating and radiators throughout, so it is suitable for stays throughout the year.

 

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 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! Do be aware as well that the carriage is immaculate – freshly restored and clean but as this is a very rural environment the occasional spider or fly may come to join the party from time to time.

 

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 and a lovely BBQ area.

 

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.

 

Slindon is a beautiful village between Chichester and Arundel.  There is a village shop, café and a pottery shop.  There are incredible walks/bike rides right from the door either into National Trust Woods or up into the South Downs. The nearest beach is about 15 minutes drive away and there is the fun of Arundel Castle and many other cultural activities for all ages to enjoy in close proximity.

Reviews

This is such a lovely, quirky but comfortable place to stay. We had a really relaxing time....and slept really well. My 8 year old son has been telling everyone he meets that we stayed in a railway carriage and I know it will be a memory that will stay with him. It was a real bonus having the use of the tennis court. Its a great location with easy access to Arundel and the coast. Jayne (the owner) gave us some recommendations which were very useful. Highly recommended

We really enjoyed our stay in the Carriage, and the host Jayne was incredibly accommodating and helpful. There was no actual Wifi as advertised and we felt it a little unfair to advertise the wifi symbol on the AirBnB page and then use the blurb to say otherwise.

We had a terrific time at the railway carriage. It's small but perfectly formed with everything you might want for a short break away from home. The beds were comfortable, the towels were thick and fluffy, and there were even bathrobes provided! The little kitchen was just big enough to make proper meals, and had a combination oven/microwave, 2 electric rings, and a decent size under-counter fridge, plus good pans and decent sharp knives. The sofa was a cosy place to curl up with a book in the evening. The location is also fabulous. There's a great shop and cafe (The Forge) within walking distance and also a nice village pub where we got a lovely dinner one evening. You can walk out of the door and into NT woodlands and there's plenty to explore within walking distance. A short drive takes you to Arundel, and we even had a day out in Brighton which was only about an hour away by car. Our host was awesome and checked in with us frequently to make sure there was nothing else we needed. She even provided some home-grown courgettes for our dinner one evening!

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!
Andrew - August 2021
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.
