The space
Located 100 yards from the banks of the River Wye, in a World Dark Sky Park, Doldowlod Old Station Caravan Park is a lovely peaceful place to relax and unwind. Situated 3 miles south of the pretty market town of Rhayader and 6 miles from the Elan Valley Visitor Centre, the 1920's 2 berth Cambrian Railway Box Carriage sits in a picture-perfect setting.. This is an ideal location from which to explore the unspoiled beauty of the Cambrian Mountains at the gate-way to the Mid-Wales "Lakelands" and the wildlife heart of Wales.

The Box Carriage is a unique and quirky self catering accommodation. Whilst it attracts railway enthusiasts it also gets its fair share of honeymoon couples and also guests looking for somewhere unusual to stay. There is a wood burning stove, a king size bed with a memory foam topped mattress, lovely Queen Ann style chairs, rugs & cushions to keep you cosy, an electric oven, grill & hob, a low noise fridge, an electric kettle & toaster plus everything that you need for self catering. There is a flat Freeview TV. On the wooden deck there is a table & 2 chairs. We sell wood at £10 per basket. There is also an oil filled radiator to keep you cosy, the burner is an extra for you to enjoy a real fire if you wish to.
There are private heated WC facilities comprising your own lockable flush toilet & hand basin plus your own lockable shower room for your sole use, located just 12 yards from your carriage.
There are views across the river meadow to the wild Cambrian Mountains & the River Wye.
