Absolutely fantastic, took a 5 and 3 year old on the Santa special and it was clear the effort everyone was making to do something special. Everyone was extremely friendly and knowledgable, and the line itself and locomotives are first class. Really lovely morning and highly recommended.

Just to say well done to EHR for bravely trying to run the Halloween evening after 12 hours+ rain. Yook grandchildren who enjoyed dressing up and the costume competition, rides on the roundabout etc. Sadly as we were just about to queue up for the train ride we were all told train rides were cancelled due to rising water levels out on the track! But evening enjoyed by kids so well done.

Thank you for your kind comments :) As you can imagine after all the planning that went into this event, how disappointed we all were with having to cancel the event part way through :( By the next morning, the track was under almost 3 feet of flood water! Thankfully no damage was done, and trains were running again once the waters had receded. We hope you will visit us again soon (on a drier day!)

We visited the area on Bank Holiday Monday and were not disappointed! With 3 boys under the age of 10, what better than steam trains cutting through beautiful scenery, going under bridges, etc! It was great value for money as we bought a return ticket, so could get off at one end and the children could play in the adjacent play parks and get an ice cream. We were then able to do the return leg of the journey on a different train as there were 6 different ones running that day. Would highly recommend!
