“Nice trip out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Lovely little trip out and a smashing little cafe which was very well run. The train ride was nice and all the staff were very helpful. A nice little shop with souvenirs.

“Ok”

Train journey was ok, walk back would have been nice (but it was raining) but nothing at the other end (including toilets)

“Step back in Time for a brief trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Charming but short rail trip with dogs allowed on train. Staff on platform very friendly and carriages immaculately maintained and very comfortable.

“Walks along the railway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Fantastic walks alongside the railway. The walks are perfect for a family with a dog. They would also be good for older people as they are relatively flat. The viaduct is spectacular!

“train ride to nowhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

it was quite a few years since we took our children for a ride on this railway. I can't remember a lot about it but I do remember we all enjoyed it. I don't know about now but when we went it was a shortish train there and back again as, there, was nowhere in particular.
