  1. An excellent facility, but some maintenance is needed.

    The flue on the fireplace is VERY unstable and requires urgent maintenance/replacement. It has rusted and is almost ready to collapse – accidentally nudging it while the fire is lit could burn the whole place down!

    Additionally, the tap on the rainwater tank which feeds into the sink leaks when open. There is plenty of water available from the tank at the northern end though.

  2. Hi,
    Just letting you know the Hallett Hotel has reopened and also this year the Hallett Gallery will be available after a few years off for small numbers- home stay- max 3. Would need advance notice.

  3. Walked past the hut on Sunday and decided to have a look inside. We could open the padlock, but someone has put the bolt across the inside of the door and left by another door so the hut is not really much good

  4. Thanks for letting us know Mark. The door has been opened so it now works as it should.

  5. Stayed here on 19th Oct. 17 . Plenty of water and bait set so no mice thank goodness. Swept out hut. Thanks to all concerned for provision and maintenance of this railway station hut.

    27/9/2018 Stayed overnight in hut, a nice stay. The lady from the service station supplied some wood for the stove. Water was OK.

  7. What a well presented hut! Someone has invested effort and money recently into this hut and it shows! The main room (kitchen?) had a pot belly stove that really works fantastic and there was a supply of wood stacked inside. The stainless sink is new and there are even supplies at the moment – candles on the table, sponges, detergents & paper towels. Even better, there is a solar battery / led light which worked a treat to charge my phone! The outhouse is clean and well sealed and even had hand sanitiser in it. They’ve installed motion detected solar lightning at the entrance which helps when coming in from the pub in the dark.
    They’ve also installed signboards about the local history. No vermin. Five Star!

    Thank you FOTH and community of Hallett. You are legends!
