The Old Railway Station Information

Description

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. Entry is through reception which was the converted station masters office. Guests are greeted by staff at the ticket window and then shown to their rooms. Our intention is 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 is served in the waiting room which retains its 6 metre high vaulted ceiling. In winter, breakfast is accompanied by a roaring log fire, in summer the platform often becomes the breakfast venue.The waiting room also serves as a licensed tea room during the day offering a range of drinks and cakes as well as our famous cream teas, which can also be enjoyed on the platform if the weather permits. 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 throughout - although you may wish to 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.
