One-Off Feature

As unusual places to stay go, the historic Masbury Station Signal Box in Somerset is most definitely one of them.  Originally built in 1874, it has been beautifully restored to create a unique and romantic getaway for two people.  Dog friendly, with walking trails from the door and many nearby Somerset landmarks to explore.

General Info

This unique retreat is on the platform of the old Somerset and Dorset line, between the former Waiting Rooms, and the Station House.  Once part of the line transporting people by train between Bath and Bournemouth, the Signal Box is surrounded by ancient railway and woodland and is cosy, welcoming, and brimming with character.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Masbury Station is the perfect setting for exploring the local area.  There is a garden centre and cafe immediately next door which is open daily for breakfast and lunch, and has fresh produce available to buy.  There are many easily accessible local walking and cycling routes around Masbury.  The famous Cheddar Gorge, excellent for walking and climbing, is 20 mins drive.  The historic city of Wells with its gothic cathedral is a 10 minute drive, and the well known town of Glastonbury with its quirky shops and famous Glastonbury Tor is 20-25 mins drive.  There is no shortage of excellent pubs in the vicinity where you can try some of the cider and cheese that Somerset is so famous for.
