The Bure Valley Railway is Norfolk’s longest Narrow Gauge Steam Railway and operates between the old market town of Aylsham and the bustling Broads towns of Wroxham and is within easy reach of Norwich and the coast.   It was built on the track bed of part of the former Great Eastern Railway and the nine mile line runs through a stretch of lovely, rural Norfolk, following the river Bure through meadowland and ancient pastures, stopping occasionally at small country villages.

Trains operate on a daily basis from the beginning of Easter to the end of October with special events throughout the year, including Santa and Mince Pie Specials.   The railway also offers a very popular boat train which gives the opportunity for a journey by steam followed by a cruise of the Norfolk Broads.   For those who would like to realise their childhood ambitions to be a train driver, Driver Experience Courses are available during the off-peak periods.

The railway’s facilities include an 80-seater café at Aylsham, which can provide everything from a cup of team to a full meal, a large souvenir and model railway shop.   The railway’s workshops are also based at Aylsham and often open to the public.   At Wroxham Station there is a gift shop and a large second-hand book shop with over 5,000 books run by the Friends of the Bure Valley Railway.  

All trains have special wheelchair accessible coaches and disabled toilet facilities at both Stations.  Free parking is also available at both Stations. We are also Dog Friendly.

Poolside Lodges is a family run site of 3 single storey lodges located 5 miles from the heart of Norwich city and the Norfolk Broads, meaning we have the best of both worlds on our doorstep; the stunning architecture of the city with its wealth of heritage, high street brands and array of independent shops to the tranquillity and beauty of the National Park Norfolk Broads.

We have 3 lodges; Poolside (sleeps 4), Studio (sleeps 2) and Woodside (sleeps 4).  Our Studio and Woodside Lodges have the added luxury of hot tubs (all year round).  All guests share our outdoor heated pool (late May to end September), games room and gardens.  Lodges can be hired for weekend breaks, holidays and business visitors.  Our lodges can be hired individually, or we are ideally suited to group bookings of families and friends for holidays and special occasions.

We offer relaxed and welcoming accommodation with facilities of a larger site, at affordable prices.
