One of the nicest places you could stay, a romanic, idylic retreat.
On arrival you are greeted with tea or coffee on the old platform which is now a lovely terrace, then taken to your carriage, the character and style have been preserved as much as possible, it almost feels like you are on a romanic train trip ( with out moving ). The beds are sumptuous and clean, and shutters at every window.
Breakfast is served in thd old station house waiting room, a choice of cereal or cooked full english breakfast, or a combination of what you would like, fresh juice, toast, tea and coffee. All cooked and served perfectly.
If you want somewhere different to stay then this is the place.
The only bit of advice which we would have found usfull on our first trip to The Old Railway Station was that if you want to go out for diner in Petworth or surrounding villages then you have to book a cab well in advance, there are only a small number of cab companies in the area, and only one that works on a Sunday.
This was our second stay and hopefully with many more to come.
