Cheese and Cider plus Cream Tea Specials

 

We are offering journeys from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead with Cheese and Cider on your outward journey and a cream tea on your return 

Take the steam service from Bishops Lydeard either 12 05 or 12.15 (which service will be outlined on your ticket) and meander through the Quantock Hills and along the coast behind a heritage steam locomotive taking in the breath taking scenery whilst enjoying your Cheese and Cider.

Upon arrival in Minehead you may get off the train and you will have plenty of time to explore the town, shops, cafe and beach. Your return trip back to Bishops Lydeard will depart Minehead Station at 16.45 where your Cream Tea will be served. 

Please note that for all our services this year, tables of 4 and tables of 2 will be in separate coaches, it is therefore only possible to travel in groups of 6 within a compartment. As catering is only provided for tables of 2 and tables of 4 please note that if purchasing one of each, a table of 4 will be in a separate carriage to those who hold a ticket for a table for two, due to social distancing.

If you do not have a printer or a mobile device, please do not purchase your ticket online - contact our main office on 01643 704996 where we will be able to help you.

If you require your tickets to be printed by us, and posted out to you or sent to a station for collection, there will be an administration fee of £2.00 for this service.
