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....

Management response:

So lovely to meet you both and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you both again soon. Yours, Gavin & 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.

Management response:

So pleased you enjoyed your stay, with the peace and quiet and even better that you hope to return later in the year. You'll always be welcome back here anytime, when you can hopefully enjoy another one of our local pubs. Thanks again.

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.

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay and we just loved how you ended up where you are now and how your family bought you the trip to our Signal Box. We would love to welcome you back again, but feel sure you family will be planning another secret trip in some other exciting part of the world!
