Nestling at the bottom of Whinfell Forest, the Signal Box was once used to control the crossing and operate the points at Cliburn Station, on the Eden Valley Railway. It now offers unique, luxury, self-catering accommodation in a previously working and recently renovated railway Signal Box with private garden, access to a private 14 acre wood and parking for two vehicles.

Ideally suited for two people, the signal box can accommodate four people, using a sofa bed in the lounge. It offers a first floor lounge (with views of the Eden Valley to three sides), a modern dining/kitchen, a double bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Under floor heating and hot water are provided by an environmentally friendly geothermal ground source heat pump.

Please note that unfortunately, due to its historic nature and design with stairs, this property does not have wheelchair access but is suitable for some guests with restricted mobility.


32” TV with freesat, DVD player, iPod docking station with radio, two leather sofas (one of which is a sofa bed) and cosy wood burning stove.

A small amount of wood is provided for guests to enjoy the wood-burning stove, but further supplies should be purchased as heat is provided by the underfloor heating and is included in the price.
