Elmira is one of two Pullman Camping Coaches by the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway line providing railway carriage holidays. This unique self-catering accommodation is located in the small coastal village of Ravenglass, Cumbria. The rolling hills and craggy fells of the western Lake District form a stunning backdrop. Once forgotten and unloved, Elmira has been lovingly brought back to life and her fascinating history is now on display to be admired and cherished. As you step aboard, allow yourself to be transported back in time to a bygone era.

Railway carriage holidays by Cumbria's coast

This Lake District railway carriage self-catering accommodation is dog-friendly. Sleeps 4-5 guests (4 adults and 1 child maximum) in one double and a twin room, plus, a bed in a box in the lounge area. There is room for a travel cot (not supplied) in the master bedroom. Holiday start day is Monday (4 nights) and Friday (3 nights). 

Good to know:

  • In the kitchen, you'll find a kettle, two-slice toaster, two-ring electric hob, microwave, tabletop convection oven/grill, and fridge with freezer compartment. 
  • The double master bedroom has a small wardrobe with shelves and a coat stand. Off the bedroom is an en-suite shower room with a toilet and sink.
  • The second bedroom is compact, with twin beds - see photo above, shelves and a small drawer unit.
  • In the main bathroom, there's a shower, toilet and sink.
  • An iron and ironing board are provided.
  • Access to Elmira is via steep, open steps which lead to the covered entrance porch/vestibule and front door. Access to the rear is from the entrance porch/vestibule.
  • Outside the front of Elmira, there's a fenced patio area with a picnic bench and access to a sensory garden. At the back, you'll find a communal garden.
  • Free parking for one car in front of the camping coach. A second space can be pre-booked. 
  • Dogs - the front steps up to the Pullman Camping Coaches are very steep and not paw-friendly. Therefore, we recommend your canine family members use the back entrance.

Please note, that our main season runs from March until the end of October. However, we will operate trains during the February half-term and festive trains during December. Please see the timetable for further details.
