Millpool - a holiday carriage for wheelchair users Mevy The Old Luggage Van The Travelling Post Office Harvey Railholiday - winners of Visit England Sustainable Tourism Award 2016

We have five beautifully restored and well appointed railway carriages at stations on the GWR Cornish main line; four in the pretty village of St Germans, South East Cornwall, The Old Luggage Van, The Travelling Post Office, Mevy and Millpool and Harvey, in the West Cornwall coastal town of Hayle, near St Ives. Each has its own enclosed landscaped garden. Guests in St Germans have access to our ten acres of woodland, while Harvey of Hayle is within easy walking distance of the beach. We are open all year.

Newly opened in 2018, Millpool offers fully accessible wheelchair friendly holidays, but is equally good for the able bodied; the open plan design makes this carriage feel lovely and spacious. You can also find us on Facebook. We offer £25 off if you come by train, bus, bike or on foot.

First Year Special Offer for Millpool. Any two days from only £150. Weeks from £395.

The Travelling Post Office has step free access and so is suitable for those with limited mobility and we can offer a mobility scooter on request. Thomas the Tank Engine and Harry Potter fans will love Harvey of Hayle, with its compact compartments and original BR seats, while if it’s sumptuous glamour you like Mevy will fit the bill perfectly. For that quirky getaway you can’t beat the Old Luggage Van, with its patchwork quilt, trackside location and cosy wood burning stove.

As a family company we strive to go further to make our holidays special. Our conversions are carried out to a high standard. We pride ourselves on our green ethos and offer an environmentally friendly holiday without compromising quality or comfort. We welcome dogs, walkers, cyclists and families. All carriages are non smoking and Mevy is pet free.
