You Can Now Stay In An Abandoned Train Carriage And It's A Millennial Pink Dream
If you're looking for an idyllic getaway for you and your gal pals, we have found just the place - and it involves sleeping in a converted train carriage (please bear with us).
Set in Eye, Suffolk, next to the old Mid-Suffolk Light Railway, the carriage interior is much sassier than it looks on the outside.
This 'abandoned' carriage is a millennial pink dream on the inside, complete with candy pink stripe sofas and armchairs, pink wallpaper, tiles and even rugs.
It has a cool retro feel and it's no surprise given that it was once a real life train carriage on the Edwardian railway.
It's located on a site called Brockford Sidings, which boasts five restored carriages and railway buildings for people to stay in.
The chic pink oasis is known as Railway Carriage Two and is the largest of the lot - sleeping up to six.
It has a double bedroom and a bunk bed room, plus a sofa pull out bed in the lounge - although looking at reviews it sounds like it'd be a bit more comfortable for four. Still, if there are six of you ladies, it makes it more fun to bundle in, right?
Plus, the more the merrier because as it starts at £280 per night, that works out at just £46 per person if you all go - bargain! It will cost more for a weekend stay though, so be aware.

The carriage is right in the countryside so you'll have views for days and close to the site (3/4 mile away) is a hot tub, pool and sauna which is shared with the owner (you'll need to book a slot to use the facilities).
But once you've finished with your leisure activities and walks, the accommodation has Wi-Fi and a DVD player to keep you busy - nothing would keep us from reclining on those retro sofas.
It's also just minutes from the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Museum, which is set in the bed of the old railway line and even has a working steam train too.
Just one question. Will that train take us to the nearest pub please? It's just 1.5 miles away in Mendlesham apparently so would be great to catch a lift...
