Characterful train carriage with countryside views offers a wonderful base for exploring the city of York.

At Skipwith Station, just south of The City of York, you can discover the wonderful Lady Deramore Carriage. Situated on the old Derwent Valley Light Rail line, once known as the Blackberry Line because of all the blackberries on Skipwith Common which is adjacent. This carriage sleeps 4 guests.

The open plan living area with TV and DVD player retains the original feel of the character of the carriage with its large windows looking out onto the wonderful views of the surrounding area.
