The Orchard Carriage was in use on the local railway line until the mid 1900s. From there it made its way into service as storage for the village hall before being rescued and fabulously restored to its current glory.
Across from the raised bed in the carriage are the sofa and the colourfully painted dresser where the gas hobs and the wood burner sit. In the adjoined back room is the bathtub, (not an original feature of course) and a hand basin. Please use only eco washing products in either. A compost loo is located a few metres away from the carriage.
The setting is a beautiful, country garden in a rural area of the south. The carriage is in a small orchard just down from the house behind which runs a country lane, so there is very occasional traffic. The farm is close to Bath and Bristol, but tucked away among the villages and lanes of the countryside. After you get back from a hearty hike in the hills, you might even be able to use the wood-fired sauna.
