  • 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.
  • Such a great place . Short drive from are holiday site and such lovely people all so very nice . Well worth the very little money thay change for such hard work thay have all done . Love the old trains 🚂 gift shop . Just a wonderful place that can make you feel your in the 1950s love the tea room on the train 👍🏼100% going back before we head home to London..
