Please see leaflet or website for more details.

Always plenty of seats available on our Mince Pie Specials so no need to book - just turn up. A real coal fire awaits you. Enjoy a relaxing trip back in time in our vintage railway carriages behind one of our beautifully restored steam engines, over glorious Exmoor. Every passenger receives a mince pie with our compliments.
