The Owner Says
Edward is traditional in its design and features yet contains all the modern facilities you would expect from luxury accommodation.
Edward has his own ensuite bathroom with a flushing toilet and full size shower with unlimited hot water. There is a small kitchenette with basic cooking equipment along with tea and coffee.
The carriage is powered by the sun and offers lighting and usb charging points so you can stay connected (if you want).
At bed time after relaxing in front of the wood burning stove your settee will transform into a full size double bed. All your 100% cotton bedding is provided so you can pack light.
Outside there is seating and a table on the large deck which offers stunning views across farmland. A fire pit with removable grill for cooking will entertain the alfresco chefs among you.

Features & Facilities
The railway carriages both have a small kitchen with a gas hob. There’s a sink with running water and all pots, pans, crockery and cutlery are included. There’s a small shower room with a shower, toilet and a small hand basin. The sofa pulls out into a double bed and there is a wood burner to keep you toasty. Outside there is a boot box, table, chairs, fire pit and a BBQ. Logs are provided. A separate, shared shed to which guests have access has a fridge per hut, a couple of bikes which guests can borrow and space for extra storage.
There are plenty of walks in and around South Farm and farmer Richard is more than happy to take you around and show you how an arable farm works. Grain Brewery (01986 788884) is part of the farm’s diversification hub – it’s the perfect place for a pint and just a 10-minute walk from the carriages. You’ll also find Waveney Ice Creams, Peachey’s Preserves & Gin House and Batty Candles too. A 15-minute bike ride will take you to Flint Vineyard (01986 893942) where you can enjoy a tour and tasting or their '15-mile lunch' where all produce has been made 15 miles from the vineyard. The pretty market town of Harleston is less than 10 minutes drive away and has cafés, bakeries, shops and pubs. Historic Norwich is 15 miles away. Its old cobbled lanes are great for independent shops, plus there's Norwich Castle & Museum and Norwich Cathedral (01603 218300) to explore. The famous coastal town of Southwold is about 20 miles from Choo Choo Moo with its quirky pier (01502 722105) and world-famous Adnams shop. The site is only six miles from the edge of the The Broads National Park and the closest place to head for is Bungay where there’s a handy deli to pick up a picnic. The River Waveney is a lovely place to spend the day – hire a canoe or stand-up paddle board and spend the day looking for otters and kingfishers.
Food & Drink
A welcome hamper is provided for your arrival containing a few local goodies including bread, milk and jam. The Grain Brewery (01986 788884) is the closest place to get a pint but, if you want to stretch your legs further, The Wortwell Bell (01986 788025) is a 30-minute walk away and serves real ales and ciders with wood-fired pizzas on the menu on a Friday night. Closer than that (a walk of around 20 minutes) is Farmers Kitchen (01986 788315) where Waveney Valley produce is served and sold in the shop, café and restaurant. Earsham Street Deli (01986 894754) in Bungay, five miles away, is another place to stock up on local produce and a convenient place to pick up a riverbank picnic. But if you want to go straight to the producers, visit Fen Farm Dairy (01986 892350), a short drive from Choo Choo Moo, where you can buy the famous Baron Bigod cheese and perhaps pick up a bottle of wine from the aforementioned Flint Farm Vineyard. Norwich's historic market (01603 213537) boasts plenty of food stalls open Monday to Saturday.
Choo Choo Moo is a three-minute drive off the A143 at Wortwell. Follow the signs to Grain Brewery, pass the brewery on your left and take the first left on to Low Ditch Road. The carriages are 120 metres on the left. It is 87 miles from junction 28 on the M25 or 93 miles from Junction 27. By bike, take the northern section of cycle route 30 and you’ll come straight pass the gate.
Choo Choo Moo is a 10-minute walk from the ‘Picadilly Corner’ bus stop in Arburgh which is served by the number 84 Konnect bus from Harleston or Norwich. You can arrive by train at Beccles or Diss Station and pick up a taxi or bus to Harleston.
