Sluttery Travels: The Old Railway Station, Sussex

I adore train journeys. Love them. Even in London, I don't get very angry about commuter trains. But I'm all about the romantic train journeys. I can't think of anything more perfect than travelling across Europe on the Orient Express.

But, I can't afford to do that (it's £2000 to get to Italy! Two grand!) I can however, afford to stay in the Old Station Hotel in Petworth, Sussex. It actually is an old railway station!

You have a choice of staying in the carriages or the old station house (carriages, obviously). And they're mighty pretty:

The carriages are available at pretty reasonable rates too. £90 per night for a late deal, and increasing to £170 in high season. Loads cheaper than the Orient Express, but just as romantic as Brief Encounter.

Will someone take me please?


  1. I love it. I want to go there now. Might be a bit chilly at night though :-)

  2. Now THAT is totally my kind of thing. I LOVE trains. I'm such a geek about them. I would be happy to spend all day pottering up and down the country on the train.
    OK, that's enough reveal...

  3. oooooooohhhhhhhhhhh. A stationery train. How perfect. Anything to do with travel suits me. X

  4. If you're interested in finding out a bit more about the history of the closed Pulborough to Midhurst railway line on which The Old Railway Station is sited, I've written about it here.

  5. Pleased you all like it! I'm plotting a holiday...
