An award winning quirky station carriage turned into a restaurant serving a variety of seafood, steak and burger dishes.


This unique restaurant is a must-visit in the West Bay area. The original carriage was previously a hospital coach which was used in World War 1. The owners of The Station Kitchen sourced some train track, parked it at the station and converted the carriage into a restaurant. The peculiar eatery has garnered praise from British television legends Martin Clunes and Hugh Laurie, as well as Masterchef critic and Telegraph reviewer William Sitwell.


Sitwelll said, “The Station Kitchen is a happy place, with great service, and is a breath of fresh air. We stepped off the train and on to the platform having sumptuously, deliciously and blissfully gone absolutely nowhere”.

We highly recommend paying The Station Kitchen a visit.

  • The Most Magical Campsite

    We have just come back from the most magical few days staying at Highlands End. In fact, it was so good we extended our stay by a few days whilst on park. We are new to campsites and this was beyond my expectations

  • Wonderful three night stay

    Our pitch was spacious and quiet. The facilities were clean and a generous number of showers etc whatever time we needed them. A very picturesque site and plenty to do straight from the van without the need to drive

  • Beautiful weekend away

    This park is in a wonderful location. The local village is beautiful and only a 15 min walk along the river. The beach is then another 15 minutes along - again a beautiful walk. We were blessed with amazing weather so we spent the afternoon on Hive Beach.

  • Perfect Site, A Complete Gem!

    It's always a bit of gamble going somewhere new, but Eype House Caravan park did not disappoint. Quite the opposite, it exceed all our expectations and we completely fell in love with the place.
