We offer narrow gauge train rides in Exmoor National Park at Woody Bay Station North Devon, England's highest narrow gauge railway station. Steam trains run through rolling countryside, with views out to wild moorland and the rugged coastline.

"I visited the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway with my wife and two daughters. I am pleased to say that we all enjoyed the experience more than expected. There was more to see than is the perception given by the website. In addition to its location, we particularly liked the general tidiness (especially the toilets) the tea rooms, and the general ambience of the station and the environs. We also found the volunteers on site friendly and efficient. The focus on customer enjoyment rather than just running a railway is to be commended."
