Description from owner

Description

Visitors to Cliburn Signal Box will find that, whilst it has been completely modernised, it has been tastefully renovated to retain its charm and many of the original features and characteristics.

Its secluded location is ideal for those wishing to relax and get away from it all, those wanting to be closer to nature, or those wanting to get out and about.

Nature is on your doorstep, with visitors often seeing the local red squirrels and the Signal Box uses the first floor lounge, which has windows to three sides, to give breathtaking views of the Eden Valley. At night little light pollution means that it is perfect for stargazing and if that wasn't enough, a short drive and we are walking up one of the many fells or playing in one of the lakes.
