The Railway cottage is set in a quiet and peaceful rural area on a little green meadow. There's a small street close by but it's quiet at night. The car can be parked close to the carriage. The carriage was spotless clean. Upon arrival there were a delicious cake, coffee, teabags and milk for us. We got a very warm and friendly welcome by the manager who explained everything to us and even returned the next morning to show us the pool and jacuzzi. A folder full of information left no question unanswered. There were books and games. The Raiklway museum is close by. There's plenty to do in the area. Unfortunately the tv was very small and the angle was not well adjusted so some programmes appeared very dark. It was quite cold so when we returned in the evenings it took a while until the radiator had warmed up the carriage.

I wish we'd booked a longer stay, we didnt have time to use the pool. The carriage was spotless and had everything we needed. The tea and cake for us on arrival was a lovely touch. The bed was the comfiest we've ever slept in, and it was so quiet we both slept like babies. Thornham walks is worth a visit. Will definitely be returning. Thank you.
