The Carriage Ely is entirely unique. ‘It does what it says on the tin’ and has been lovingly restored and expertly modernised. What lacks in size is most certainly made up in luxury! Recently converted, this original Great Western Railway carriage packs a serious punch. In its heyday it would have carried holidaymakers from Paddington to Penzance. The best quality fixtures and fittings have been used while retaining as much of the original character as possible. What has been created is a property that benefits from a modern, high end open-plan kitchen, an Art Deco inspired living room and a cosy bedroom. The Carriage Ely is ready to welcome you to your own bit of romantic luxury.
To enter the Carriage Ely you’ll first ascend the eight steps before you enter the property. You’ll step straight into the thoughtfully presented kitchen, this features everything that you’re likely to need for a short break. The bathroom is found opposite the galley kitchen. Move further through the carriage and you’ll find a richly Art Deco themed living room which benefits from attentive interior design, excellent furnishings and loads of natural daylight. The original seats and table makes great use of space to watch some TV or just kick back with a glass of wine and relax. Why not sit outside on the patio, light the firepit and enjoy a romantic spot under the stars? As bedtime draws in, move onwards to the luxurious bedroom area with a kingsize bed featuring a luxury hypoallergenic natural wool mattress and feather down duvet, combined with high quality linens ensuring that you have a great night’s sleep.
Being rural and located in the countryside means you’ll get a real view of the night sky, but you’re close enough to the local village where you’ll find a couple of pubs and a local shop. The Cathedral City of Ely is 4 miles away and there you are quite literally in the midst of the local amenities. Little Downham is your closest village and here you will find two pubs (one specializing in authentic Thai food), and a village store.
On the doorstep there are lots of countryside walks and cycling options, plenty of wildlife and RSPB land directly opposite. Slightly further afield, though only 4 miles, is Ely, a wonderful Cathedral City which has an array of good places to eat and drink, and a variety of shops. While away, stroll down to the river and spend some time watching the boats. Nearby tourist attractions include Oliver Cromwell’s House in Ely, Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, Liberty Belle River Cruise in Ely, RSPB Ouse Washes and Cherry Hill Park. Cambridge can be reached in 40 minutes. If you fancy a trip to London, it can be reached by train from Ely. Fancy a day beside the seaside? This property is in a fantastic location where travel to Hunstanton on the North Norfolk coast is just over an hour. With lots of day out opportunities from your doorstep, make The Carriage Ely the base for your next adventure.

    This is a quirky and exciting place to stay, the hosts are lovely and pay attention to detail, this is reflected in The Carriage the decor, the soft furnishings and the overall experience of staying with them. It is unique, and a short driveway from the wonderful city of Ely that has so much to offer, art gallery, river boat cruises,dining by the river. Oliver Cromwells house, stained glass museum and of course the spectacular Ely Cathedral. Cambridge is a short train ride away or drive, as is Newmarket. So there is so much to explore within Ely and the surrounding areas. Ely has a wonderful market, and lots of shops in the town centre, a cinema and lots of places to eat out or have take away delivered to the carriage. Really can not rate this highly enough. Was a weekend stay -present for my mum and daughter. I have already rebooked for another family member and will be booking another two stays very shortly. My mum and daughter both said it was the most comfortable nights sleep they had both had EVER!!! The treats were much appreciated and the whole experience was euphoric, unique and Epic ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Thank you Andrea and Richard and
