Welcome to Old Hathern Station Bed & Breakfast, our converted Victorian Railway Station just outside Normanton on Soar in beautiful Leicestershire countryside.  Old Hathern Station has offered charming bed & breakfast accommodation for the last five years and in 2017 we were delighted to be awarded Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence which we have continued to hold. This year we have also been awarded a 5 Star Food Hygiene Rating from the Food Standards Agency of which we are very proud as food hygiene is very important to us and our guests.

Our bed & breakfast rates start from just £50 for single occupancy and from £85 for double occupancy making us excellent value, especially with free wi-fi and secure parking directly outside!  A microwave with crockery and cutlery is situated on the landing also giving guests the flexibility to self cater in the evenings.

Going back in time, Old Hathern Station was originally built in 1857 and was one of Beeching's closures in the early 1960's.  In 2008 we purchased the Old Station and began the long process of lovingly restoring and extending this extremely solid building to create a comfortable home in the heart of rural England and to provide storage and workshop space to indulge our hobby of collecting and restoring classic vehicles.  You can probably guess that we have a passion for all things evocative of a bygone era!

If you are looking to explore the wonderful countryside this area has to offer, have a business meeting nearby, or perhaps are visiting Sutton Bonington campus of Nottingham University... our delightful rooms and excellent breakfasts are just what you need!   If you have an early flight from East Midlands Airport and need a relaxing place to stay close to the Airport with charm and character... look no further!   If you are looking for retail therapy in one of the many shopping centres around Nottingham, Leicester or Derby and want to be staying close by... we are ideally situated near to major road and rail links.

We are situated just 5 mins from Nottingham University Sutton Bonington Campus, 10 mins from J24 of the M1 and East Midlands Parkway Railway Station, and 15 mins from Nottingham East Midlands Airport. The town and city centres of Derby, Loughborough, Leicester, Melton Mowbray and Nottingham are all within 30 mins drive, or just a few minutes walk and you will find yourself in glorious countryside.

There are many attractions on our doorstep and plenty to see further afield, all of which are detailed on our LOCAL AREA page.

We are delighted to say that we are now taking payments by Card as well as Google and Apple Pay!
