New Facilities Opened at Okehampton Station

New Facilities Opened at Okehampton Station

Okehampton station has undergone a major upgrade, offering exciting new facilities for passengers and visitors. The newly opened Bulleid Buffet provides a welcoming space to grab a bite or drink, while the Dartmoor National Park information center equips travelers with everything they need to explore the stunning scenery. Train enthusiasts will delight in the Dartmoor Railway Association shop and museum, while everyone can appreciate the refurbished toilets.

This transformation isn’t just about convenience; it’s about promoting sustainable travel. The information center encourages visitors to explore Dartmoor by foot, cycle, or public transport, reducing reliance on cars. This aligns perfectly with the National Park’s mission of promoting a healthy and eco-friendly way to experience its beauty.

The project is a collaborative effort, funded by grants and expertly designed. It breathes new life into the historic station building, restoring original features like parquet flooring and shutters. With hourly train service to Exeter, Okehampton station is now a more attractive gateway to both the town and the National Park.
