Waiting Rooms and Railway Carriage Holiday
Accommodation in beautiful West Norfolk

Welcome to The Old Station, Heacham

The Old Station was once part of the King’s Lynn to Hunstanton Railway Line (click to see a short video) and although the last train left Heacham Station on 3 May 1969 this quaint English railway station refused to fade away. In April 2021, Hannah and Andy took over ownership of The Old Station Heacham and have continued to run it as holiday accommodation.  Many have enjoyed this unique setting for a memorable holiday occupying either the original Waiting Rooms or refurbished Railway Carriage.

What better place to enjoy a holiday of a lifetime but on Norfolk’s very own “Sunset Coast”. Your railway themed holiday home is located just a few minutes walk from the beach and right next door is The West Norfolk Pub. The history of The Old Station and The West Norfolk  are closely linked as the hotel’s restaurant has been converted from Heacham Station’s original Railway Goods Shed.

Accommodation that will make you smile

The Waiting Rooms

Heacham Station Waiting Rooms (sleeps 2) truly take you back to a golden age long gone and affords guests an immensely relaxing experience.

This charming and unique holiday accommodation is very comfortable for two people for a relaxing and tranquil break.

In this modern age, it is not easy to find such a quaint haven for a couple to enjoy a restful get away from it all but you will find exactly that at the Old Station Waiting Rooms in Heacham.

The Carriage

Turn the clock back and enjoy another truly fascinating railway holiday experience at Heacham Station with our refurbished Mark I First Class Railway Carriage (sleeps 4) which has been in service as self-catering accommodation since May 2008.

A self-catering holiday (sleeping four) with a difference awaits you here at The Old Station Heacham. Our Mark I First Class Railway Carriage was built at Swindon in 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.
