Had too much television and being stuck indoors over the festive period? Come to Woody Bay and blow the cobwebs away. 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.
