Visitor Quotes

What a beautiful place! We felt like we were in one of those Downton Abbey train scenes. We - and our dog- enjoyed the visit very much and want to thank the welcoming staff.

Website is great, trains run into the winter, the cafe is super, the atmosphere is spot on.  Given the resources to expand, there's even more magic to be had here.

I visited your railway a few weeks ago and have never been made to feel more welcome on a preserved railway. I have been involved with many preserved lines for many years and yours is one of the best set-ups I have come across.

I visited the L&B with my wife and two daughters. I enjoyed the experience far more than expected - there was more to see and do than is the perception given by the website. We particularly liked the general tidiness (especially the toilets) the tea rooms, and the general ambiance of the station. We also found the volunteer staff friendly and efficient. The focus on customer enjoyment rather than just running a railway is to be commended.

Four of us had lunch at the Woody bay station cafe while we were waiting to take a trip on the train during the 2nd week of August.  My husband and I live locally and our guests were from London.  I have to say it was the best lunch we have had locally - not only was it delicious and beautifully prepared, but the service was exceptional.  What a gem!
