This is a small narrow gauge railway and must not be compared to the likes of Welsh narrow gauge railways. It is most applicable for families with small children and people who like trains. There is a lovely little station with a large gift shop...More

First visit with our toddler granddaughter. Lovely scenic train ride, helpful staff and nice cafe and shop. Trains are well maintained, but old and liable to break down, but staff kept us informed of slight delay.

This is a lovely afternoon out. I took my elderly parents and kids and they all had a lovely day. Great little shops and friendly helpful staff, who go out of their way to explain things. Thanks... Lovely family memories.
