The Old Railway Station Information


When guests arrive at The Old Railway Station B&B they pull up to the restored wooden station building, built in Victorian times, but given a colonial twist. Check-in can be non-contact to ensure social distancing or guests can now come to reception. Staff are there to ensure guests feel welcomed and relaxed during their stay at our B&B The two rooms in the station house boast super king size beds and en-suites with walk-in showers. The upper station house room has a vaulted ceiling and is approached via a spiral staircase. The lower station house room is all one one level and easier to access for those with limited mobility. The eight rooms in converted Edwardian Pullman carriages are all individual, with different detailing and features. We have two larger rooms, our King Pullmans, which are slightly longer and have a bath and shower in the en-suite. Its quite a unique experience spending the night in a train carriage and imagining all those that may have travelled on it in the past. Breakfast can be served in the rooms. Waiting Room or on the platform if the weather is nice. The gardens are quite something and are lovingly cared for. Each room has tea and coffee making facilities, en-suite bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Free wi-fi is available (although we are a little out in the country side, so not super fast!). We are a romantic and special place where most people want to getaway and leave the present behind. Petworth town is 1.8 miles north, Goodwood and Chichester are within a 25-minute drive while Bognor Regis and the seaside are 30 minutes away. We unfortunately cannot accommodate under 10s.

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.
