Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway

One of our guests visited the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway for their vintage weekend in June.  The line runs for 8 miles of lovely Border country, and the coaches have outside balconies so that you can stand and take in the sights and sounds of the countryside on a nice day as the train chugs slowly along.  There are more vintage weekends in July and August, but “normal” trains run most days from July to the end of September – why not make this trip part of your stay with us?  The Welshpool terminus is only just over an hour’s drive from the Lodge.

Pictures show the engine taking on water at Welshpool, the vintage train with its green engine and historic carriages, riding the balcony of the vintage train, and the station at Llanfair Caereinion.
