Not as described
The booking was described as a cottage. However, had we known it was a cold damp railway carriage we would not have made the booking. We had to move a sofa to use the pull down bed, which was cold and damp. The carriage did not have a lock on the door which meant we had to go out leaving our belongings unlocked. The accommodation is not a cottage and not worth £150 a night.

Holiday with a difference
Helmsley , beautiful area & great base for both the coast and moors. Railway carriage conversion very nice and generally comfortable, you will need the heating on in cold weather as the carriage doors & windows are a little rattly and loose. I would say OK for two people but would be a bit tight with 4, especially when double bed is swung out and settee moved to accommodate. Hosts lovely, very obliging and friendly and breakfast was just amazing.

Charming conversion and lovely hosts.
Very interesting location and accommodation. Railway carriage conversion very nice and generally comfortable apart from the heating going off at night - frost outside and very cold. But the heating was reprogrammed and good afterwards. OK for two people but would be a bit tight with 4. Hosts lovely, very obliging and friendly and breakfast was just amazing. Good area for exploring lots of interesting places.
