About Marion Gardner
Charles loves steam trains, so when he saw this railway carriage on eBay in 2012, we just had to buy it to add to our collection of two we already have in the garden. We spent two years restoring it, trying to make it into a special space where you feel and see the character of old carriages paying particular attention to detail but have all the modern facilities to make you comfortable. We live in a beautiful part of West Dorset and feel very privileged to live here and enjoy doing so very much. We love to have visitors because we love to share our surroundings and give them a taste of our paradise. When I am not running the camping coach I teach piano. We have 2 wonderful daughters and a fluffy dog called Rusty.

well done and thank you for sharing.
It was lovely to welcome you all and glad you had a good stay!!
We can’t wait to return to this unique oasis. Thank Marion
I hope you had a good trip home and thank you for coming. You are truly welcome back at any time. Perfect guests!! Marion x
A very characterful property, great attention to detail and a very helpful owner.
The coach and caravan are very well situated both immediately for the scenery and the quiet and locally for access to the Dorset hills and coast. Marion was a great host who made us feel very welcome and our 8 year-old loved sleeping in the caravan. We had a very enjoyable week and would most definitely recommend this unique property to our friends.
thank you for your kind review we loved having you and hope to see you again one day Marion
Novel,confortable, and relaxing break
The coach was very confortable and the surroundings beautiful and peaceful. The location was ideal for various local resorts, including West Bay, Lyme Regis and Charmouth. Marion and Charles made this 70 th birthday celebration a memorable occasion for all.
We loved having you to stay, and we are so pleased you enjoyed your birthday celebrations here. Best Wishes
A lovely short break in a great setting.
The camping coach and van were fun for the boys and comfortable for us grown-ups.
A gorgeous renovation, so many small touches that make it so authentic. The setting of the coach and van is beautiful and it has all the little touches you need. Bed really comfy and the shower was hot and strong. But the way the coach and the living vsn havr been done up will just take your breath away. Take time to read the book on the journey on the coach and the living van. A really interesting read. We loved every minute and Marion and Charles were great. As were the two cute dogs, pip and rusty.
We will book again one day. Don't hesitate to book if you are thinking about it. You won't regret it!
Just 5 miles from the Jurassic coast where there are many beaches to choose from. You can walk along the cliffs, look for fossils, swim in the sea or just relax on the beaches.
Great place for walking through the West Dorset Countryside. Wonderful views and well signposted tracks.
