Cornwall Hospice Care is pleased to be able to offer a once in a lifetime experience aboard the Belmond British Pullman luxury vintage train on a journey to the stunning country home and subtropical gardens of ancient Dunster Castle.

We invite you to step on board the Belmond British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, and experience the excitement of luxury train travel. From the moment you join us, you are transported to a world of pure indulgence. Take a seat in the vintage carriages that once ran on legendary 1920s services such as The Brighton Belle and The Golden Arrow. Glide through stunning scenery as champagne flows and gourmet cuisine is served. Expect glamour, fun and a dash of adventure.

Is it for me?

Yes! This day experience captures the wonders of train travel at the height of its success. Brunch is served on the outward journey to Somerset, before guest can choose between visiting Dunster Castle or taking in a steam experience along the West Somerset Railway. Champagne and canapes await your return to the Pullman for the journey home, followed by a sumptuous four course dinner with wine.

You can expect an experience like no other when travelling on the British Pullman with Cornwall Hospice Care.

1. Call us today to book your place on 01726 66868 (option 3). A £95 deposit will be taken for each guest booking made.

2. You’ll get a confirmation letter shortly afterwards.

3. We’ll be in touch in late February early March for the outstanding balance on each ticket (£300 for each guest).

4. One week prior to departure you’ll receive your ticket as well as confirmation of departure time.

5. Finally, enjoy the day! We’ll have two representatives on board to ensure your day out is perfect.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get to the 12th of March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

For every ticket sold we could pay for four hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.
