For those seeking a unique railway carriage holiday, let us introduce you to Maid of Kent, one of two Pullman Camping Coaches at Ravenglass, Cumbria. With a rear terrace seating area overlooking the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway line, Maid of Kent offers elegance, comfort, and a sense of nostalgia. You do not need to be a train enthusiast to appreciate the splendour and importance of this very special Pullman Camping Coach. Its original features have been uncovered and sympathetically restored. From the ‘Pullman Car No.137’ plaque in the lounge to the beautiful marquetry that has been delicately repaired, and now adorns the walls throughout the carriage, this is an incredible railway holiday destination.


Pet Friendly

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.

  • Access to Maid of Kent 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.
  • In front of Maid of Kent, there's a fenced sensory garden. At the back, you'll find a fenced patio area with a picnic bench and 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.
