Property details

The Railway Chalet is a no frills property situated on private grounds at Snettisham beach, close to a static home park and just a few minutes’ walk from the incredible RSPB reserve. The accommodation comprises a mobile home that has been extended using a converted old railway carriage so it's a little bit quirky! It is a perfect location for birdwatchers, walkers or sailors. There is an enclosed garden giving plenty of space to park (please note there is a static caravan within the enclosed garden also available to let). Guests can walk to the beach and the sailing lake and club (sailing courses are available). The chalet has two bedrooms and a separate sitting area in the original railway carriage accessed through a curtained door and a spacious kitchen and sitting area in the main part. The property is perfectly placed for people wanting to experience the annual spectacular of the geese migration in the late autumn and winter months, and the waders in the summer.
