Outside and Grounds

The outside areas of station house are detailed below. Most of the perimeter is fenced or walled as shown with the exception where Station House meets the road. A substantial fence separates the railway property across the entire border, and this must not be crossed.

The upper lawn is a few feet above the rest of the grounds and nicely surrounded by walls and trees to stop it being too exposed. It's a nice flat lawn great for camping or outdoor activities. It measures approximately 12m x 8m.

The lower lawn is directly next to the games room and can be accessed by the door at the end of the games room. It's a functional area for activities, but the ground is not as good for camping as the upper lawn. The lower lawn measures 13m x 10m approximately.

The campfire circle is a larger irregular shaped area of 20m by 18m at maximum. This area is ideal for campfires and activities. However, we would not recommend pitching tents here.

The kitchen is equipped for groups of 20 people and has six electric hobs and a standard oven. There is also a range of standard and catering sized pans and other utilities. An abundance of plates, bowls and knives and forks are available. You will need your teatowels.

The games room is the largest inside area at Station House and has several activities to keep children and adults entertained, especially on wet evenings.

Station House has two showers, three toilets and a washroom with three washbasins. This area has an external door.

The living room has an open fire and several settees. The living room is a comfortable space and works as a leaders room or somewhere to slow down after a busy day. Please ensure the fireguard is in use and don't put another hot fireguard on the carpet - they are expensive!

The dining room is the hub of downstairs and has doors to the other rooms. It has two large trestle tables and adequate chairs.

The utility room or platform room as it is also known as it has a door to Station House side of the platform area. The utility room was formerly the passenger waiting room, but it now houses several fridges, microwaves and storage areas.
