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, and one 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 2017, Millpool is fully accessible for wheelchair users. You can also find us on Facebook. We offer £25 off if you come by train, bus, bike or on foot.
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.
Millpool our fully accessible coach for those with mobility, hearing and sight impairments is available for bookings this winter and beyond. The Travelling Post Office is also a suitable holiday for those with limited mobility and we can offer a 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. Finally for that quirky getaway you can’t beat the Old Luggage Van, with its patchwork quilt and cosy wood burning stove.
