“Perfect weekend away”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed in Cliburn Signal Box for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. There is lots to do in the surrounding area and the cottage itself is cosy and quirky - underfloor heating was very much appreciated at the start of February! I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near the Lake District.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, from the beauty of the surrounding area to the under-floor heating, powered by an environmentally friendly ground source heat pump.
Come back soon.

“Ridiculously cute place to stay”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We often try to find quirky or different places to stay when travelling in the UK and abroad but this has to be our favourite. The setting and accommodation is gorgeous and you can tell a lot of hard work and love was involved in the restoration of the signal box. If this was ever for sale we would buy it in a second and we will definitely be back in the future.

Gavin and Wendy were great hosts, very helpful and we wish the a lot more success in the future.

G&N :)

Thanks again,

“Fantastic holiday cottage”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

What a fantastic holiday rental, we were pleased with the presentation of the cottage the uniqueness of it, and the location. It provided an excellent weekend base for us to relax and avoid people. I would definitely recommend staying here if you get the chance to.
