British Rail Rest & Recuperation Van

This 1970s British Rail mobile road van provided shelter and warmth to rail workers in Mid Wales. It has been lovingly restored to provide a cosy and comfortable dwelling for one or two people.

With fantastic views over the Montgomeryshire landscape towards the Shropshire hills the van is located one mile from both the Offas Dyke National Trail and the historic town of Montgomery.

The van sits within the confines of a large garden with private access and off-road parking for one car in the rural settlement of Hendomen.  The van is fitted with a double bed with all bedding provided. It is made cosy with underfloor heating and has full lighting, USB charging points and free WIFI. An adjacent private bathroom includes flushing toilet, hot shower and hand basin. Towels can be provided at a small charge. There is also a small under-cover kitchen with breakfast bar, electric kettle and toaster are available for your own use.

This accommodation offers the perfect overnight stay for people undertaking the Offas Dyke National Trail which is within sight from the van.

Montgomery boasts a hotel and good bistro for evening/day meals, two cafes, fish and chip shop, a tiny super market, post office and an indoor market (Thurs only).

Alternatively camping/tents can be accommodated, please contact host for details.

Pre booking is essential.
