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. Owner Angela has transformed the van into a warm and colourful space in which to relax after a day of exploring this historic landscape.

There are also many events through the year which are within a brief drive.
