Description from owner
Visitors to Cliburn Weigh Office will find that, whilst this historical railway building 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 deers from Whinfell Forest or Salter Wood. 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.
What more could you ask for?
WiFi is available at the property and a wood burning stove adds to its home comforts.

“The Hidden Gem Of Cumbria”
Stayed at the Weigh Office last weekend and cannot recommend staying here enough. Upon arrival we were greeted by Gavin the owner who was lovely, he explained everything we needed to know and let us settle down. Although the office is small it only adds to its charm and character, there is everything in there that you need. Location is brilliant, we came for a weekend of hiking in the Lake District, a 20 minute ride away and your in the heart of the Lakes. I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank Gavin for being so welcoming and helpful the whole time that we were there. Will without doubt be coming back to this hidden Gem.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and it's lovely to hear that you'll be back. Great that the building had everything needed for your stay and that you found the location brilliant. We loved having you here and do hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards, Gavin & Wendy
