This former hotel built for a railway station in 1900 has been transformed into a unique apartment building - and you could get on board from £145,000.

The Railway Hotel, on Station Street in Cinderford, was built in tandem with Cinderford Railway Station, opening in July 1900 to cater for passengers of the now-demolished station.

Until 1923, the hotel was owned by Francis Wintle’s Mitcheldean Forest Brewery, who put their portfolio of inns on the market that year.

Although the station stopped taking passengers in 1958, the hotel remained open, and by the 1970s was part of the Whitbread chain of pubs.

Long-time residents of Cinderford may remember the 1988 May Bank Holiday, when two teams of Railway Hotel customers - one team of plasterers and one of bricklayers - took part in an obstacle course to raise money for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

By the 1990s, the Railway Hotel was owned by Punch Taverns, who rebranded the pub as Trax, a move intended to attract younger crowds to the venue which ultimately failed, resulting in another rebranding to Railway Tavern.

Railway Tavern closed in summer 2007, and has now been converted into five luxury apartments.

There are two ground floor apartments, two on the first floor and one on the second.

The apartments are being marketed by Dean Estate Agents and range in price from £145,000 to just under £200,000.

Sharon Vickers of Dean Estate Agents commented: “It’s a fabulous development.

“The apartments are high-end luxury apartments that have been beautifully finished with oak flooring.

“Everything is brand new, and outside there will be parking, bin stores, and bicycle stores - plus there is planning for two coach houses on the site.”
