'We had a wonderful time at Choo Choo Moo. They couldn’t have been more accommodating. The carriages are set in a beautiful location and it truly is a top glamping experience. Nearby Harleston is a great little market town with good amenities and we had a fabulous Japanese meal there. Can’t recommend highly enough!'

'Where to begin? Be in no doubt that this is the best place of it’s type I have ever stayed in! Firstly the owner made us very welcome when we visited over the New Year, could not have done more, really could not! The whole set up has been given a lot of thought and the carriages are situated to command beautiful views across the valley. The carriages are stunning inside, including the shower room and want for nothing. There was also an amazing welcome basket with excellent local produce. I could write pages, just book a carriage for yourself and see!'

'We’ve just spent an idyllic week in The Edward Carriage, beautifully restored and converted into stunning accommodation. Although small, it’s a perfect home from home with lovely views at any time of day! The village is only a short walk away and even has its own brewery! The local area has lots to offer and has some great eateries and within a half hours drive you’ve got some super beaches for walking the dog. Thanks to our hosts too for being helpful friendly and informative We will be back!'

'We enjoyed a two night stay in The Edward. The accommodation is well thought out, given the limits of space an old train carriage presents, and therefore it’s cosy but still has everything you need. The log burner was great, and really added to the cosiness in the evening. I loved the ‘pull out dining’ table. There is plenty of space to eat outside too, and we enjoyed eating the delicious items supplied in the welcome basket on the peaceful decked area. Holly provided a warm welcome on our arrival, but after that you are given the privacy to enjoy your break safe in the knowledge you could contact her with any problems. We borrowed the bikes provided and cycled the short distance to Flint vineyard for the tour and lunch, which was a lovely experience. There is plenty to do in the local area and with a short drive to Norwich it’s in a perfect location to explore, or not, as if like us you might like to just relax and eat (more) cheese! It was my husbands birthday, Holly and Richard thoughtfully left a tasty cake to celebrate, which was very much appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful stay, I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Choo Choo Moo.'

'We had an amazing three night stay at Choo Choo Moo. We stayed in The Edward and it was stunning! Very well laid out and presented. The main section with the log fire was really cosy in the evenings but plenty of room to use the kitchen etc. The bathroom is lovely with a nice warm shower. All the products in the carriage are good quality and environmental friendly. The welcome hamper with lots of goodies went down really well including the local beer and cheese. We spent the days walking and also hired a canoe which was great fun. In the evenings we loved just chilling by the fire pit enjoying the beautiful peaceful countryside.'

'Met by the owner, who was very welcoming and explained where everything was and how everything worked. A lovely welcome hamper which is a very nice touch. Location is quiet, overlooking the Waveney Valley, ideal for sitting on the decking and watching the birds of prey hovering overhead, and an ideal base to go and explore the local area. The fire pit was great as we cooked up some local produce on the first evening and ventured out to the Wortwell Bell for some pub grub on the second evening, which was also very welcoming. Overall it was a great short break and the railway carriage is well equipped, it seems like they have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing. Definitely recommend!'

'On arrival we had a lovely welcome hamper with local food staples and drinks from the local brewery. We stayed in The Edward and had a great stay for a few days, the facilities inside were great even if they are off grid. We used the fire pit for a BBQ and bikes for a while to look around the area. Overall I couldn’t recommend more, the views are amazing to wake up to and see the sunset over the hills and the carriage is overall very comfortable and the perfect size!'

'Really fantastic weekend stay in the Victorian Carriage and Richard also let us have a peak in the Edwardian wagon which looked lovely too. Really cosy inside and the old ceiling was beautiful. Welcome hamper was a real a treat – sparkling Rosé! – and we briefly used the bikes in the shed too to go for a little ride around the village (although it was a little cold for that during our December visit!). Richard was an excellent host. He showed us around the farm, including the old dairy where there is now a brewery. There was an open event there during our weekend, so we got to sample plenty of beer and enjoy some live music. Richard and Holly’s recommendations were spot on: We ate at The Olive Tree and a nearby Japanese place, both thanks to their recommendations, and they were fantastic, particularly the Olive Tree. Daytrips to Southwold and Walberswick (with a cool boat crossing on the river) and a slightly longer drive to Snape and Aldeburgh. Highly recommend this place. All off-grid, which was really great, but super comfortable too (and very good shower!). Felt very privileged to be amongst the first few people to stay here. I’m sure it will continue to be very popular!'
