Company information

We see ourselves as custodians of the Old Railway Station, rather than the owners. We fell in love with the place, just like our predecessors before us. It is such a beautiful building and really does make you forget about the modern world (even if just for a moment). Our staff here are a real team, and all of us want our guests to enjoy their stay and hope that what we do enables that. Each award received by the Old Station is an award for us all and we all take pride in what we do. Our carriages are very special, they and the building itself take a great deal of time (and money) to keep them in good condition. Their upkeep provides constant work for us, and by staying at the station guests can rest assured that they are helping ensure that our little part in the history books stays alive in some way.
