The train runs on solar power, all your water is spring water and is a great example of up cycling and recycling. The tiny house train is located on a 10 acre/4.2 hectare organic blueberry farm and has just finished being restored and turned into a tiny house in May 2019. There is a cozy log burner plus electric heater and the TV has Netflix, You tube, Chrome cast and a HDMI cable connected. I think the photos say it all but better. I can collect you from Silverstream train station if required.

The space
Most of the Saturday blocked days can be booked just for a later checkin time as I won't have had time to clean the train until 6pm. If you would like stay and can check in later contact me and I will unblock the slot for you. The bed is a double size as that is the only size that would fit in the space. Feather duvets and pillows and an electric blanket. The couch in the lounge does fold out to a double bed and has bedding available so can sleep 3. Yes there is a very nice shower but it is a bit hard to take a photo of. The Train isn't available during the blueberry pyo season which is generally January through to the beginning of March because the train is in the middle of the blueberry pyo picnic area.
Pets are allowed but my human/dog friendly dogs are NOT cat friendly I'm sorry to say.

I am an organic PYO blueberry farmer with a few cows, sheep, chickens and bees on the farm not to forget Fred and Wilma the two small super friendly dogs. I spend most of my time down in the blueberry field pruning and such like so can be found down there if you need me. There is plenty of space here to just relax and enjoy the surroundings. I can't host during blueberry season (January through to the second week of March) as the farm is a mad house and the train is in the middle of the picnic area so there are hundreds of people peering in the windows all day which isn't much fun when you are trying to have a shower or get dressed. I enjoy a good laugh but prefer my privacy in the evenings but am always available if you need anything. Cell ph coverage is only Spark, skinny and Vodafone not 2 degrees.

During your stay
I live next to the train and am available if required but prefer to give you total privacy though I can't say the same for the two small over friendly dogs Fred and Wilma.
