Well worth a visit. Richard, whose private house this is, has made a superb job of renovating the station and his tiny museum in the grounds is well worth a visit.

Totally agree with the other reviews, a hidden gem that is well worth a visit. How kind of the private owner to allow visitors to have a look around.

Beautiful kept memory of the past. The Queen would be delighted to see it now. Its like a stage set, standing without tracks but the feeling something is coming. Worth the visit.

I really enjoy my visits here. Especially when classic cars in car park. Shame the line has not been reopened as it would cut down on cars on roads to Hunstanton.

Visited the station on our way to Norfolk. What a beautiful place to wander round. It doesn’t take long but definitely well worth the detour, and dogs are welcome. A credit to the owner. Thank you for opening up your home for others to enjoy.

Agree with above. It's a private property and the owners are very good about letting people in and around. They may have been away and couldn't supervise the site.

Great place to visit. Definitely worth a visit. It is a private residence so pot luck if it is open. We popped by a few times until it was open. Try contacting the owner if possible.
