Steve and Lisa Rawlings, A.K.A, the station masters, purchased Coalport Station in 2002. Part of what attracted the couple to the property was its amazing history; Coalport Station was part of the Severn Valley Line, located in the famous Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage site, which played an important part in the Industrial Revolution. The main building was opened in 1861, which transformed into the Station House and has now successfully been Lisa and Steve’s home since 2002. Coalport as a working Station was closed down, as with most of the Severn Valley Line as a whole, in 1963 after an amazing 101 years in use!
The two carriages were brought in from off-site and renovated to a beautiful standard. Steve has an interesting career background in interior design which included aerospace, railways and even autos, and the interiors are designed with a similar sympathetic feel. Carriage 1 sleeps 6, and carriage 2 sleeps 4 people, and both look out onto a woodland walkway.
Coalport Holidays are currently offering some great offers for the upcoming Summer 2018 such as a three-night break for as little as £290. Steve and Lisa would love to welcome their guests to their truly unique accommodation full of historical charm.
