Our Full English or Continental breakfast is now served in The Wailing Room - or on the Platform when the weather is nice.
The Continental breakfast can still be delivered to your carriage.
In order to limit any chance of cross-contamination we can no longer offer a daily clean. Rest assured the rooms will be cleaned thoroughly between guests, and we will be happy to replace any used items and clean towels when required.
We do offer free Wifi.
However most guests come here for a special getaway and you may wish to leave the present behind...

Places to Visit
The beautiful market town of Petworth, a centre for arts and culture is just under 2 miles away. Spend a day looking around Petworth House, antique shops and a enjoy a quiet lunch.
The city of Chichester is 11 miles away with its wide range of shops, restaurants, Cathedral and of course Chichester Festival Theatre.
Both Goodwood Racecourse, Motor Circuit and House are 7 - 8 miles away across the South Downs. A perfect place to stay for the many events they hold.
The historic market town of Midhurst holds a unique position at the heart of the South Downs National Park. Plenty of shops and restaurants and Cowdray Park for polo.
An historic town full of independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes, delightful drinking spots as well as the Castle, Lake and WTT Wetland Centre.
A pretty little village at the bottom of the Downs, with a pottery, tea room, Castle and Chalk Pit Museum are well worth a visit.
Just to thank you all for the wonderful, friendly and efficient service we received when we stayed with you. The experience of staying in a converted Pullman carriage together with the delightful afternoon tea we had on arrival and the lovely breakfast we ate this morning (and both were delicious) made for a memorable stay. In these difficult surreal times it is "the art of making things possible" that truly makes a difference to people and the team at The Old Railway Station have achieved this and more.
