Brand New: Once A Victorian Train Carriage; Now A First Class Holiday Let

One Off Places is thrilled to announce the launch of Mevy, a converted Victorian railway coach in the small village of St Germans in Cornwall.  Opened for its first guests less than three months ago, Mevy is an 1896 railway carriage sleeping up to five with three classes of compartment and a guard’s van.


Mevy has first, second and two third class compartments, as well as a guard’s room, and all the compartments have been cleverly and individually restored and furnished, from the sumptuous upholstery and English gold details of first class, to the triple bunk bed with patchwork throws in the guard’s room.  The central second and third class compartments offer an open living space with the bedrooms at either end, and the interiors re-capture the essence of Victorian carriage style with handmade carriage seating and Victorian-style fabric. 


Tabitha Symonds, founder and director of, said of this brand new addition to the portfolio; `Mevy epitomises the very essence of One Off Places and ticks all the boxes – unique accommodation, beautifully converted and set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  This is a truly memorable little bolthole`.


Set in a pretty village location, and just a short drive from some of Cornwall’s finest coastline, Mevy is the ideal base for walking, cycling, bird watching, horse riding and water sports holidays. Outside Mevy there is a private deck with seating and BBQ facilities and a garden area where children can play safely. Visitors also have access to a children’s play area and games room.


Sleeps up to five people in two bedrooms.


From £295 for 3 nights / £395 for one week.
