Families would adore this; so would nature lovers. Train buffs? They'd miss the old 70s interiors - and the engines. In stunning contrast to their original garb, these refurbished coaches are sleek and contemporary: wooden floors, Venetian blinds, snazzy cushions, modern prints, snowy linen. Kitchens are well-equipped, showers are fabulous and there's a vintage rocking chair painted in shabby-chic fashion. Go first class and stay at The Lady Deramore or enjoy the converted loading bay, Blackberry Halt, stylish accommodation for two with a private hot tub. The Derwent Flyer is roomy with bunk beds for all the family while the Derwent Mail is a bright pretty space with fresh modern touches. The space is cosy but not cramped, well-designed but homely – the Southworths have done a brilliant job. He was general manager at the Carriageworks in York, she is a garden designer. They were looking for a project, bought up the Station House, moved in, then bought and transformed three old carriages. As for Skipwith Common, it's the largest wetland heath in the North of England: cycle tracks, bridle routes, wildlife galore, and the lane leading to leafy Skipwith village is truly rural. Lizanne's creativity has extended to two landscaped acres... add several hens, and two wagging dogs you can walk if you don't have your own, and you'll soon feel at home. Books, games, DVDs, storage and air con – all yours, and if you stay for four nights there's a hamper as well. Lizanne is delightful and settles you in.

Ten of the Best Self-Catering Properties in Yorkshire by Abigail Flanagan

"50 years ago Skipwith was a bustling station on the Derwent Valley line to nearby York, but in 1964 the last train chugged through and nature reclaimed the rusting rails as her own. And that’s how Skipwith’s journey would have ended, but for Lizanne and David Southworth’s unique vision. Not content with transforming the old ticket office into their own home, they bought and installed three rundown rail coaches (as you do). One mother of all makeovers later, and the unloved rolling stock was reborn as the Derwent Flyer; Derwent Mail and Lady Deramore: three superb en-suite apartments, sleeping four, four and six respectively. Super-sleek Swedish-style interiors feature wooden flooring; streamlined modern kitchens, spacious bedrooms and nifty bunkrooms. All have air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, outdoor living space and incredible views of the surrounding countryside. New for 2013 is Blackberry Halt: previously the old loading bay but now a high-spec studio for two adults, complete with courtyard garden and hot tub. Commute-tastic."
