“Charming Cottage with very friendly owners.”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a lovely stay in their small but very well equipped cottage.
Beutiful surroundings. Gavin and Wendy gave us some good tips for nice walks in the hills beat Dufton.
They turned out to be bautifull and quiet. Exactly where we were looking for.

“Cosy, Well Equipped Base Camp!”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Well, what can I say, Cliburn Weigh Office is in a lovely part of the world, just off a quiet village, within easy striking distance of the Lake district, Pennines and the Dales to the south. Penrith is nearby offering pretty much everything that you may require for your stay. The property itself is lovely and cosy, well equipped and light. We had a really good nights sleep tucked up in the mezzanine, it would lovely in the winter with the woodburner, but alas it was a bit too warm!

If your into wildlife, make sure you get up early as we saw a number of Deer nearby and there is plenty of other wildlife to take your fancy.

All in all, a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend to anyone and would hope to come back in the near future!

“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.
