“Unique accomodation”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Loved the signal box so calm and peaceful. Perfect base to explore Eden valley and the lakes. Thank you Gavin for the wine it was a very nice gesture,also for recommending the Butchers Arms at Crossby Ravensworth we had a lovely meal there. We look forward to staying again later in the year.

Have just spent a fantastic long weekend in the signal box! Set in a beautiful location in the Eden valley and also close to the Lake District. The accommodation itself could not have been better cosy, fantastic amenities, lots of kitchen equipment, gorgeous renovation! Highlights were the log burner, incredible views, chicken and ducks outside and snow on our last day! Some great local walks, pine forest behind the property with red squirrels and great location for exploring elsewhere.

We will definitely be coming again and recommending to friends and family!

“What an amazing property”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Have just returned from a fantastic weekend exploring around this part of the Lake District and was lucky to stay at this superbly renovated Signal Box in a beautiful location on the edge of Whinfell Forest. Everything you need for a great break is in the property and when the wind is howling through the forest, having the chance to light a real log fire burner (something you don't get to do in the city) is a real bonus. It all added to the atmosphere especially on a cloudless night when you can the stars and the milky way in all their glory. Seeing deer roaming in the field next to the cottage was a highlight. Being a country boy who misses the rural countryside, I wasn't disappointed. The free bottle of wine was a nice touch too. Will definitely be returning!

So please you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the renovation of the Signal Box. That stove will have been perfect with the howling wind outside. Come back soon.

“Perfect weekend away”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed in Cliburn Signal Box for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. There is lots to do in the surrounding area and the cottage itself is cosy and quirky - underfloor heating was very much appreciated at the start of February! I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near the Lake District.
