Dunster Station on the West Somerset Railway Travel By Train to Your Holiday Cottage

View My Favourite Holiday Cottages Accessible By Train

Railway holiday cottages are perfect for visitors who want to travel to their holiday accommodation by train, perhaps because they want to protect the environment or because they don’t drive. Cottages near train stations are also in demand among fans of heritage railways, many of which run through some of the UK’s most spectacular countryside. You will discover a superb range of luxury holiday cottages within a few miles of a heritage railway or a station on the national network. With a holiday home near a station, you can rest assured that it will be a hassle-free journey, and all you will have to do is walk, hop on a bus, or take a quick taxi ride to get there. Cottages close to heritage railways are equally convenient. The heritage line won’t be more than a few miles away and may even run right past your front door. Restored steam railways make a delightful and nostalgic day out and continue to be a popular attraction for children.
