This beautiful station building is situated on the site of the original station which was operational from 1861 – 1965, and has been rebuilt in the style of a typical Great Western Railway building of the Victorian/Edwardian era. The station is divided into two self-contained holiday lets, The Booking Office (a three bed property) and The Waiting Room (a two bed property). For larger groups, both cottages can be booked to provide sleeping for up to 10 people. Directly opposite the station there are large lawns to enjoy garden games, sun lounging or to simply enjoy a peaceful read. This is a truly wonderful country retreat to sit out in the gardens or on the platform and just soak in the country air! We’re very fond of just sitting and listening to the birds singing and the breeze brushing through the trees – and the occasional train rolling past, of course!
The Waiting Room
Briefly, this two bedroom property comprises of an entrance lobby with utility area, cosy & fully kitted living room with wall mounted electric fire, wooden surround and brick archway leading to well-equipped kitchen. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms (one king with en-suite and one twin) and a family bathroom. Outside guests can enjoy a meal or a drink sitting out in front of the property and there’s ample outdoor space within the station yard, including a large lawn immediately opposite the cottages where guests can play garden games or simply read a book in a shaded spot under trees. This also makes for a great area to play with your K9 friend!
