Just the ticket for a first class holiday break with a difference – Platform 1 provides unique accommodation within the former Castle Howard Station, a grade II listed building with a fascinating history. Situated within an area of outstanding natural beauty, it will appeal to those with historical, architectural and wildlife interests as well as those who are passionate about railways or indeed anyone looking for somewhere of real comfort to de-stress from the hectic pace of modern life.

As you open the door to your exclusive self-contained apartment, keep in mind that more than a century and a half before, Her Majesty Queen Victoria walked through the very same doorway, as she arrived to begin her visit as the guest of the Earl of Carlisle to the glorious palace of Castle Howard, just a couple of miles away.

Passing through the light and airy hallway, you’ll find yourself in the spacious and modern apartment that will be yours to enjoy throughout your stay in this beautiful area of North Yorkshire.

Whilst the station is situated on the York to Scarborough main line the peace is only punctuated occasionally by passing trains as they slowly glide around the bends of the wooded Derwent river valley. Only in the height of the summer is the calm shattered by the sound of the mighty steam locomotives that haul the Scarborough Spa Express, twice day. A distant whistle is your signal to take your privileged vantage point to see the express thunder by at very close quarters.

This spot offers a private retreat as well as a perfect base for exploring the surrounding Howardian Hills on foot or the many popular tourist attractions within a short drive. Platform 1 is the ideal place to stay at any time of the year. Owners of well-behaved dogs are most welcome and will appreciate over an acre of securely fenced wildlife gardens that you are free to enjoy.
