I got to stay at Coalport whilst I was visiting some of our properties in the Midlands, and I was blown away from the moment we got there.

The town it's in is so idyllic, and it was so peaceful from the moment we got there until the moment we left. You can sense the history as soon as you get there as the old platforms and Station House are still perfectly intact. The carriages are beautifully renovated, with wifi and TV's in the lounge and both rooms! We also loved the jacuzzi bath.

Steve and Lisa are the loveliest hosts, and add even more charm to the property. I promise you will love it!
