We stayed at The Old Station once again, with my sister and brother-in-law, for two nights, 14th and 15th September, 2015. Moira and Rod were there with their usual, warm welcome, straight into their beautiful lounge, where we immediately felt at home. They served us with a greatly appreciated pot of tea, cakes and biscuits. This is a beautiful property...

A lovely peaceful spot. Made very welcome and comfortable. Hope the Swallows nest, great fun watching them while having breakfast! Easy to get to North Cornwall coast and surrounding countryside. A good place to stay.

A lovely setting in rural surrounds at the old railway station which is still the original building with a kitchen extension to one end which has the same red bricks and resembles the original. Although the space between the platforms have been filled in, the whole feels just like stepping back in time and even has an old parcels van...

Moira was friendly, thoughtful, and routinely went out of her way to make our holiday the best that it could be. We so appreciated her hospitality. The Old Station was charming, well maintained, and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The location was perfect for us, easy driving distance to many Cornwall attractions.
