Book Now

A true country branch line of the old Great Western Railway is full of fascination for a nostalgic ride back in time through lovely countryside. The historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons, and the buildings of our ten unique stations are linked by a twenty mile scenic journey. The surrounding countryside is as varied as it is beautiful. The gently rolling Quantock hills and distant Exmoor, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, the cliffs and coast of the Bristol Channel with views of distant South Wales, imposing church towers, Dunster's imposing castle and Minehead's seaside charm are all waiting to be discovered.

Each station along the line has something different to offer, starting at Bishops Lydeard, Crowcombe Heathfield, Stogumber, Watchet and Minehead stations.

Bring a picnic or have a snack at the coffee shop.
