Welcome to The Tamar Belle

In the heart of the rural Tamar Valley, sandwiched between Devon and Cornwall, lies the Bere Peninsula. Bounded on the east by the river Tavy and on the west by the Tamar, this tranquil corner of south-west England is home to the Tamar Belle Railway Heritage Centre.

Bere Ferrers station once echoed to the roar of main line steam trains on the Southern Railway route connecting Plymouth to London, but is now a stop on the Tamar Valley branch line running from Plymouth to Bere Alston, Calstock and Gunnislake.

The Tamar Belle offers a nostalgic step back in time for visitors. You can stay in comfortable restored sleeping car accommodation, sample the cuisine in the dining car, browse the exhibits in the heritage centre, visit the signal box and enjoy the demonstrations of railway working.

For those wishing to leave their car behind, the regular service to Bere Ferrers station links to Plymouth and the main London - Penzance railway.
