“Wonderful break”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a fabulous time here, it's so convenient to visit all the local sites. Walking through the woods too was lovely. We kayaked on Ullswater, saw the impressive Aira Force, Lacy"s caves, Long Meg, Shap Abbey, fish & chips at Penrith Castle, Larch Cottage Nurseries, picnics every day and BBQ in the evening. Gavin & Wendy are perfect hosts all in all a great stay. Booked again for the August Bank Holiday looking forward to returning - will remember to bring the binoculars this time. Mad we forgot them as lots of birds and wildlife to see from the decking. thanks for a wonderful stay.

“First Class Berth at the Old Railway Station”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Beautiful location - idyllic and peaceful. Compact accommodation but everything you could reasonably expect or want. If you have a disability the short ladder up to the sleeping compartment might be a difficulty but I had no problem and I am nearly 60. Indeed, it was all part of the wonderful Weigh Office experience. The owners, Gavin and Wendy, were nearby and very friendly and helpful. All in all, I could not have asked for more and will definitely be back.

“Fantastic cosy cottage in great location”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a fantastic stay in the Weigh Office.

The building has been brilliantly converted into quirky and cosy accomodation, perfect for a couples getaway in a beautiful, secluded location.
The cottage has everything you might need, including a fully equipped kitchen and even a decent WiFi / internet connection.

The nearest big town, Penrith, is just a 15 minute drive away.
Ullswater is less than 30 minutes away and offers great walks, boat tours and watersports.
The Eden Valley is also right on the doorstep.

The owners are close by and approachable. They will happily give you recommendations and ensure that your stay is a good one.

I would highly recommend the Cliburn Weigh Office. You won't be disappointed!

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Have just arrived back from a fantastic stay at the Weigh Office! The cottage is superb and clearly a lot of thought has gone into the layout and amenities! My partner and I wanted for nothing in terms of facilities whilst we were there and was plenty of room without feeling as though we were living on top of each other.

Gavin was on site to welcome us and it was nice to know he and the family were on site if we needed anything. I also thoroughly enjoyed waking up and having the chickens come over and say hello!

The location is far better than expected.. 7 miles from Penrith meant both the Lakes and Carlisle were easily accessible. Also meant that we could escape the crowds of tourists!

The Eden Valley itself was beautiful and intend to tell everyone about my holiday and recommend the Weigh Office.

Will hopefully be back again in the future!

Paula :)

“Lovely get away for 2.”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

First impressions of the cottage were really good, it was out of the way and really relaxing, this is exactly what we wanted as my girlfriend is leaving for uni soon and it was some time just for us. the cottage was really well equipped with everything you need and was very clean, we even took our own hot tub and used that as there was plenty of space, the only 1 downside was on the decking underneath there seemed to be a wasps nest and going out and sitting on the decking was nearly impossible, i was stung twice just looking but im sure the owners will look into that, they were really friendly and welcoming, overall a lovely little holiday would really recommend if you are unsure you wont be disappointed, thank you for our holiday :)

Thanks for your positive comments and I must admit the hot tub was a great idea.
The wasps I think were eating the decking to make a nest nearby. Think that has now been resolved.
Hope to see you and the hot tub again in the future.
Thanks,
Gavin & Wendy
