The Lady Deramore railway carriage lived up to it’s FIRST CLASS status! Tastefully converted into luxurious accommodation for our family break. Jacuzzi bath and extra outdoor facilities were just the ticket. Would highly recommend and will return. Mary and Graham were excellent hosts.

Thank you so much to the lovely Mary & Graham for sharing your little piece of’ ‘Heaven’ We have had so much fun, the carriages are amazing and we will all be back again many times I’m sure. Attention to detail is incredible and the ‘Prosecco’ was a wonderful gesture. Many Thanks

What a novelty! Everything we could possible need is here. We were especially impressed with the size of the shower room, they are usually so tiny in holiday accommodation! It has been well thought out and it was a pleasure for us to stay here. Thank you.

We’ve been coming here for nearly 8 years. We have not been disappointed once. We met the new owners. Lovely people. Look forward to our next visit. Best wishes to you both for the future xx

We booked the trip as a surprise for our 5 year old son who loves trains. He’s loved every moment in a passenger coach especially pointing to the buffers and couplings. The coaches are lovely & comfortable with everything you need. Mary & Graham were wonderful hosts and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks for everything xxx

Brilliant holiday! 11 family members from 3 to 79 gathered for a few days and all enjoyed themselves immensely. Lovely outdoor areas for play, interiors very comfortable and well appointed and equipped. Location great for local walks and for trips into York and Selby. We’ll definitely be coming back.

We arrived lateish and were welcomed by Mary and Graham who had only just taken over the business a couple of days before. The setting is beautifully and the landscaping is great. We stayed in the Derwent Mail (2adults and 2 children) and our dog. The layout is terrific and has everything you could ask for. A lovely kitchen with views across the open countryside and very comfortable and cosy bedrooms. Lovely wood nearby for dog walks also.

Mary and Graham could not have been nicer and they made us feel so welcome. It is not going to be a case of if we come back but when. Thank you for a lovely weekend and good luck with the business. See you soon.

Fantastic quirky accommodation in a beautiful part of the world.
Everyone was very friendly and the owners could not of been more helpful. It was surprisingly spacious, clean and well equipped. Would definitely recommend.
To quote my 7 yr old daughter “the best place we’ve ever stayed, even better than the hotel at Disney”
