All aboard and step back in time for a unique holiday of a lifetime in our railway carriage and station waiting rooms!

The Old Station was once part of the King's Lynn to Hunstanton Railway Line and although the last train left Heacham Station on 3 May 1969, thanks to Dr Beeching's cuts, this quaint English railway station refused to fade away and has provided quality self-catering holiday accommodation for many years.
Since 1993, Terry & Judith Clay have owned and operated the old Heacham Station as a holiday site. Many have enjoyed this unique setting for a memorable holiday whether occupying the original Waiting Rooms or parking up their touring caravan.


But now, you can turn the clock back and enjoy another truly fascinating railway holiday experience at Heacham Station with the addition of a Mark I First Class Railway Carriage.  Following extensive refurbishment to carriage M13318, we are delighted to welcome our first guests to stay in our newest self-catering accommodation from May 2008.


A self-catering holiday (up to four sleeping) with a difference awaits you here at Heacham's Old Station
Our new Mark I First Class Railway Carriage was built at Swindon 1962 and saw passenger service on the West Coast line until 1986 when it became part of the Motorail Inter City Charter Unit.
Acquired from the Shackerstone Railway in November 2006, it now proudly displays original BR Maroon livery, complete with all its markings and stands on newly laid track.

What better place to enjoy a railway carriage holiday of a lifetime but on Norfolk's very own "Sunset Coast". 


Your railway carriage holiday home is located just a few minutes walk from the beach and right next door is The West Norfolk Hotel.  The history of The Old Station and The West Norfolk Hotel are closely linked as the hotel's restaurant has been converted from Heacham Station's original Railway Goods Shed. 

From this unique holiday location you can soak up the spectacular sunsets and enjoy touring a selection of local pubs and eateries.  It is also easy to visit the key Norfolk attractions which are all nearby.


Please note touring caravans are no longer taken at The Old Station.
