  • Lots of hard work continues to be put into this railway, run by a very dedicated team of volunteers. Completely out of the way from noise and busy roads and a lovely journey through some beautiful countryside. A bit of a hike from the parking area though which wouldn't be easy if you had a wheelchair or walking aids.
  • Closed at present I believe. Volunteers rebuilding an old train line..short trips....Very good for children
  • Worth a visit for a cheerful nostalgic train ride back in time. Really friendly and helpful volunteers and staff. Great couple of hours to spend for kids of all ages to enjoy. There's a gift shop in the ticket carriage and an educational carriage to wander around. The train ride took about 20 minutes return journey. Afterwards don't forget to try the delicious local sourced bacon rolls and a mug of tea in the buffet car.
  • Very well volunteer run. My son loved going on the train but personally think that the experience is just for train fanatics
  • Lovely place, friendly people, great to see the restoration of the railway and most enjoyable journey along the line.
