“Unique and Wonderful!”
Reviewed 16 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Cliburn signal box was beautifully presented, clean and tidy. It was well equipped with kitchenware and the essentials.

The views from the lounge area over the North Penines was amazing, especially through the snow, and the view of the night sky was astonishing. We'd definitely stay here again!

“Unique cottage in a lovely setting.”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This cottage is a really great conversion of a former railway signal box into spacious modern accommodation, whilst keeping the original features, and is truly unique as far as I am aware.

Inside there is everything you might need, including a contemporary en-suite bathroom and fitted kitchen, which was well stocked with utensils and had all appliances including microwave and dishwasher. (In the outside store room there is also a large freezer and washing machine.)

The living room, which is upstairs, has lovely far-reaching views over the countryside from the triple-aspect windows. There is a very good log-burner, complete with first supply of wood, which adds to the character of the cottage. You will not need it to keep warm though, as the property has underfloor heating, which keeps it cozy.

For entertainment, there is a large flat-screen TV with Sky channels, DVD and good WiFi coverage throughout the property. There is also a DAB radio in the kitchen, and we found our mobile signal to be Ok from the top floor.

The cottage is on the edge of the local wood, at the edge of the village, so it was lovely and peaceful, with just the sounds of birdsong all around. The lovely owners, Gavin and Wendy, who live just a short distance away, are on hand if anything is needed. so the property didn't feel isolated.

We thought the cottage had been converted and presented to a very high standard, it was spotlessly clean throughout, and had everything one could want to enjoy a stay here. We would highly recommend it, and we would love to stay here again.

“Our Perfect Cosy Traditional Xmas away”
Reviewed 25 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

At the age of 40 this was our 1st xmas away from our families & the best xmas we could ask for!!
The location was spot on, close enough to amenties should you need them (Penrith has everything even a B&M) & the nearest Lake Ulswater a short drive away
Pooley Bridge is well worth a visit & Glenridding pier where you can take a boat trip.
Cliburn Signal Box was the Perfect choice ticking all the boxes on our wish list, its Detached so no noisy neighbors, crisp county air, clear starry nights with minimal light polution & catching a shooting star, overlooking woods at both sides, cheeky neighbourly sheep grazing on food put out for the birds, an abundance of Wildlife from deer, fox, owl, pheasants galore, buzzard, robins, wren & on the feeders blue tits, cole tits, great tits, chaffinch & a bull finch..
We added a few touches to the xmas decs inc holly from the woods, & with the roaring log burner & cinnamon candle it made the perfect homely, cosy & warm traditional Christmas we could have wished for
Simply Perfect!!!
The Owners Wendy & Gavin (very down to earth, easy going & very easy to talk to) were the perfect hosts, close enough if needed but also left you to your own devices
Wendy gave us a warm 5 min bob round welcome on our arrival & we called upon Gavin's assistance the next morning during storm Barbara, he arrived in quick time to say we was in all day & not to rush ;-)
Everything was clean & well presented & had everything you needed (most importantly 3 bottle openers lol)
The perfect quirky cosy Christmas we had dreamed of!!!

Thanks again Wendy & Gavin for everything from the Xmas decks, bottle of wine to the prompt assistance during the storm
We loved it xx
