“very sweet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

From what i have heard on my many visits to this lovely little line is that many people give up their time free of charge to help with this place and what a top job they do too.Its not a full day out but as well as a lovely ride here,which was not that long when i went on it with my kids,but you do have a nice walk around the place and there is a great pub very close for a fab sunday lunch.

“Novelty trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is a good attraction if you are interested in the steam trail era. It is expensive for a very short ride but the people running it are passionate about preserving this small stretch of track. Beautiful countryside.

“Lovely Little Railway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Nice little railway run by enthusiasts. Nice little cafe and all the staff are so friendly and helpful. Be aware that this is a very short track though, so don't expect to be on the train for long. Be sure to check the website first to see when steam/diesel trains are running.

“Diverting half day out - bring a bike...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Good to see the trains and esp if you have kids - worth the money and a drive here if you live outside N'pton. About a half day's worth of enterntainment - rides, exhibition, cafe, pub lunch, walks in countryside. If you want to extend it to a full day - bring a bycycle and you can cycle along the Brampton Valley Way - for up to 15 miles - part of the off road section of the National Cycle Network.
