Heart of Wales line – Bucknell

We’re fortunate to live in Bucknell station, on the Heart of Wales line.  Our kids think it’s a dream house, and 6 months after we moved in, still run to the windows every time a train passes.

The station’s old ticket office was converted to a house in the 1970s, and is now an annex to the part of the house we live in.  We’ve recently finished renovating it as a holiday let, and thought your members might be interested to hear more about it.

A full set of details is available here https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/32946595, if you would like any more information please give me a call on 07824 508536.
