Alton Station  

All aboard! No longer a working railway, Alton Station provides a unique chance for guests to conduct their own adventures in a whimsical setting. Originally built in 1849, Alton Station differs from other stations along the North Staffordshire Railway (NSR) in its Italianate style (most were Tudor or Jacobean). Refurbished for guests in 2008, this station accommodates up to eight (plus dogs!) and includes original Minton tiles on the floor, hatch and ticket barrier associated with the booking office (which is now an additional bedroom) and The London Midland and Scottish Railway colours.

The Earl of Shrewsbury used to used to frequent Alton Station when traveling to and from his residence at Alton Towers. Now, guests can enjoy all the amenities of home including a kitchen, washer/dryer, shower/bath, and plenty of open space. The location of this station makes it easy to explore the area around Alton including Ashbourne and Dovedale. Take a walk along the tracks and enjoy views of Alton Castle across the valley of the Churnet.

Alton Station is also part of a “50 for Free” scheme which allows free stay for charities, educational and not-for-profit organizations.
