One-Off Feature

Railway Cottage is a fabulous period cottage, built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel himself as he built the West Somerset Steam Railway. Relax in the private hot tub and watch the magnificent steam trains passing by and buzzards, owls and sparrow hawks soaring above the stunning Quantock Hills.  For those in search of unique stays in a railway cottage, this is the place to come.

General Info

Originally built for railway workers, the single storey stone cottage has now been refurbished to the highest of standards and a holiday in a train station offers the inimitable experience of living right next to a working railway line. You will never tire of watching the steam trains trundle past the window. The décor of the cottage is a modern country style and all the mod cons and home comforts you could want have been provided. The cottage is in a wonderful location and there is lots to see and do in this corner of Somerset, from walking and riding along the many footpaths to riding the railway itself, visiting Dunster and its castle, and playing and surfing on the many beaches.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

A stay in a train station offers ultimate flexibility, and this area offers a wide range of attractions, from views, beaches and wildlife to walks, riding trails and a long cultural heritage. Children will love Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves and the various farms and zoos in the area. Adults will enjoy the wilderness of Exmoor Park, the magnificent Quantock Hills and Hestercombe Gardens, to name but a few attractions. And as Somerset is a county with sea, hills, moors, rivers and forests there is the opportunity to try any number of activities, from mountain biking, climbing and caving to golf, sailing, canoeing, clay pigeon shooting and fishing. There are lots of excellent pubs and restaurants in the vicinity – try the Bicknoller Inn (a 20 minute walk), the White Horse Inn at Washford, the Royal Oak at Luxborough, the New Inn in Halse, the Carew Arms in Crowcombe, the Rising Sun in West Bagborough, The Augustus in Taunton, and Podshavers near Bishops Lydeard.
