This little Brake Carriage is tucked away behind a hedgerow in the Mendip Hills. Once a railway carriage equipped with the hand brake for the train, this petite caboose is now stationed in a beautiful countryside location providing an ideal opportunity get close to nature. The views toward Pennard Hill and Glastonbury Tor are a delight. Angela has transformed the van into a warm and colourful space in which to relax after a day of exploring this historic landscape.

The Brake Carriage is an ideal pint-sized base from which to visit the endless attractions North Somerset has to offer. Check out Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Tor, Clarks Village and Cheddar Caves. There are also many events through the year which are within a brief drive. Glastonbury Extravaganza, North Somerset Carnival, The Goddess Convention, Glastonbury Pilgrimage, Collett Park Festival in Shepton Mallet and many others. Check for dates before you book.

Interior & Facilities 

The Brake Carriage now houses a comfortable double bed at one end with a small dining area at the other. In between, there is a cosy sitting room with a working wood burning stove which will keep you toasty and relaxed in the winter months. Angela has turned an industrial chamber into a soft, bright and comfortable space with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Well behaved dogs are also welcome by prior arrangement.

A shower room with modern compost toilet has been added to minimise the environmental impact and lighting is supplied via a solar panel. Outside, you’ll find a funky outdoor kitchen, complete with a two-ring gas hob and seating area for fun al fresco dining.
