The postcode for Moreton-in-Marsh railway station is GL56 0AA. Please allow plenty of time for traffic, parking your car and buying a ‘pay and display’ ticket from the machine. There is a car park at the railway station and another as you approach the railway station. Tuesday is market day and therefore, it will take you longer to find a parking space.
There are four tours per day and everything is timed to perfection. If you arrive at your scheduled time, we cannot wait whilst you park your car. If we did, it would jeopardise the timings of the other tours later in the day, which is unfair on the other passengers.
If you’re arriving and departing by train please check times before you travel by contacting National Rail Enquiries on +44 (0)3457 484950 or visit www.gwr.com. We are not liable if you miss your train for any reason. Tickets can be purchased at www.thetrainline.com Please see the following link for [train times]
Most people taking the tour arrive on a direct train from London. If the train is late, we will not wait for you (it is advisable to catch an earlier train and explore the town of Moreton in Marsh prior to your tour). If you miss the train or take the wrong train, we will not wait for you. We do not have additional guides or vehicles. Please do not telephone or email us to ask if we will wait. We will not do this because it is unfair on the other passengers who have arrived on time. If we had a spare guide and vehicle on standby, this would make the tour much more expensive.
Before the pandemic my husband and I worked for Secret Cottage Limited as employees, the company went bust because it could not pay its mounting debts and was declared insolvent in March 2022. Our employment was terminated and as a result, we lost a lot of money along with some of our customers
