Absolutely wonderful stay. Lovely little house that was perfect for my partner and I. Although on the outskirts of the lake district it has great access and is only a short drive, which we found gave us more beautiful views of the area. The location was brilliant with the ease of getting to the typical attractions around the lakes, whilst also providing the tranquility and remote, relaxed isolation we were after to escape our busy city life. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be sure to return again!
We had a lovely stay here, commuication before hand with Gavin was quick and friendly. We used this as a base to visit the lakes and it was lovely to be greated by the chickens each time we returned back. The 'cottage' was well supplied even with local os maps which could be borrowed
This place is just INCREDIBLE. Stayed in the signal box for 4 nights - as a surprise. Best surprise ever. Even if you're not keen on railways, the location, accommodation and friendliness of the owners can't be beaten. Tranquil nights by the log burner, feeding the chickens, walking in the forest and visiting local attractions, made it all so memorable. Will definitely be returning, bought a lottery ticket on way home in hope of living there permanently....!
Owners helpful, hospitable, efficient and very very kind! Thank you so much Gavin and Wendy.
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.
A remarkable transformation by the owner, including a state of the art environmental system.
My tribute to an enjoyable four day stay is on my computer !
Please pass on my comments to the owners.
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!
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!
