The Signal Box is a perfect base to relax, unwind and explore The Lakes & the Eden Valley.

It now offers unique, luxury, self-catering accommodation in a previously working and recently renovated railway Signal Box. It offers a lounge, modern kitchen, bathroom, bedroom with ensuite, private parking for 2 cars, spacious garden and access to a private 14 acre wood.

- The property has stairs. It is the adults responsibility to ensure that any children within the property are properly supervised, especially when using the stairs. The property will be cleaned for your arrival, but should you have any issues please report these immediately, so they can be rectified. On departure please leave the property clean and tidy. We expect to have to spend a little time preparing for the next guest, however, should we deem that the time spent cleaning after your departure is excessive (greater than 45 minutes) then we will report this to AirBNB and seek additional payment.
