It's a great way to spend couple of hours when the kids get bored in the afternoon. Theirs a cafe which is not very expensive. The volunteers that runs it were very helpful. My son surprisingly enjoyed it . I will definitely recommend this place.

I live local and have been many times. My children love the trains. It's great fun run by enthusiasts who love to show off their hobby. Well done to them all. Take a picnic or have a cuppa at the small cafe.

The railway is run by enthusiasts who make you very welcome. There are a selection of various gauges of track with steam, diesel and electric engines. They run on selected weekends and occasional midweek, plus Santa Specials, details on their website. There is a small tea room which seems to be the place where visiting adults (without children) left their... More

Just spent a couple of hours here. Absolutely fabulous for kids and adults. Great watching and riding all the trains. Only things I can think of to improve/enhance this attraction is, build a little tunnel half way up the main track and provide tea/coffee when at the smaller tracks. Could have easily spent longer here. Extremely reasonable costs, nothing expensive.... More

Driven past here many times and didn't realise this gem was tucked away. Run by the enthusiasts, all good fun, polite and clearly passionate about their hobby - We loved it as much as the children!

We visited Summerfields today for the first time and boy boy was it worth the drive. The staff here are very friendly and not like some of these miniature railways were you sometimes feel like you are intruding on grown up play time!. For your money £2 you get a good length ride with a stop half way, where you... More

Toddler had a great time on the trains. There are both electric and steam trains. The only problem is the fumes are very excessive. Whilst one would expect the steam engines to smell it is made worse by a small steam train sitting right next to the picnic tables and cafe taking children for a ride around the car parking... More

What a wonderful set up. The train rides last a decent amount of time and travel a lot further than you realise. The people who work there are all clearly passionate about their hobby and take pleasure and delight in sharing information and answering questions about the trains. And the cakes in the cafe went down a treat afterwards!
