Step back in time - to comfort & style.
Vintage train carriage accommodation in Devon for those who would just like to step back from the world for a little while.
CLOSED FOR 2020 DUE TO CORONA VIRUS. EXISTING BOOKING CARRIED FORWARD TO 2021.
Modern rail evokes anything but the spirit of long gone steam train days - style, romance, and adventure, yet you can still experience all of that here at Hole Station.
It's a place that time forgot, a small station on a dreamy country line long closed yet still here, kept company by the Bluebell railway carriage, nestled in deep Devon countryside.
The Bluebell spent the days of her youth traversing the fjords of Norway but is now at rest, in a verdant setting of wildflower meadows and thriving natural woodlands and wildlife.
Resplendent in art deco style, the Bluebell cossets you in comfort, and soothes you with peace, quiet and tranquillity . When you reserve the Bluebell it's an exclusive booking, it's all yours.
Take a look through the photo gallery below.
The Bluebell hosts up to four people in self catering accommodation with two bedrooms, each with it's own ensuite, a sitting room, kitchen diner and private platform area overlooking a wildflower meadow across to the woods. Wifi is available throughout and there also a pc with Netflix included.
Hole Station itself is completely secluded in 50 acres of meadow and woodland, in the quietest part of Devon. There are some lovely country pubs nearby - our local is a 20 minute walk through beautiful countryside and has a great reputation for food. If cooking isn't top of your list of activities to do whilst on holiday there is a small cafe on site which offers set you up for the day breakfasts (April - September), and home made ready meals are also available.
You are very welcome to take a stroll through the woods (in which there is a small campsite for discerning campers), it's beautiful at any time of year and home to a plethora of flora and fauna. Our horses and goats are very friendly and like to say hello, whilst the free range chickens provide plenty of entertainment too.
Hole Station is 18+ adult only, so you are never going to be disturbed by 'enthusiastic' children. Dogs are not allowed due to the chickens and other animals at Hole Station.
The minimum stay in the Bluebell is 2 nights (except at Christmas & New Year).
