Lovely and peaceful place to stay
We initially booked for a week and then extended our stay for an extra couple of nights. Michael was really helpful and accommodating with everything. A very quirky place to stay. It had everything you needed including a washing machine and wi-fi. Plenty of hot water, central heating when needed. The carriage was absolutely spotless when we arrived, not a speck of dust anywhere! Very dog friendly, no rules about where the dog could or could not go, it was very relaxing. We've been to some places where they say they are dog friendly and then place so many rules about where they can go it's not a holiday as you are always on edge. Would definitely recommend Ivywood Carriage.

Ivywood Carriage
What a smashing place to stay. Michael goes out of his way to make sure you have a great time - central heating for those chilly evenings/mornings and old style railway carriage windows for those hot summers days. Once your best friend has got used to the wood effect floor it is very dog friendly. If you don't want to cook (remember, you ARE on holiday) then go to "The Wheel Inn" on The High Road, PE13 3RH as the food there is wonderful and the beer is well worth drinking. So all in all, I would recommend this to everyone.

Terrific little get away
This quiet super little place has all you need. Two bedrooms with shower,bath and good sized kitchen. It is at the end of a driveway so no real traffic noise. The railway carriage itself has bee bought back to life to a very good standard. Furniture comfortable and good mod cons such as fast wi fi in place. Def recommend.
