Nestling at the bottom of Whinfell Forest, the Weigh Office was once used to weigh goods carried, to or from Cliburn Station, along the Eden Valley Railway. It now offers unique, compact self-catering holiday accommodation with private garden, decking overlooking a 14 acre wood and parking for one vehicle.
The Weigh Office can accommodate a maximum of two people. It offers a lounge (with views of the Signal Box and Whinfell Forest), a modern kitchen, a bathroom and a double bed on a mezzanine. Underfloor heating is provided by an environmentally friendly geothermal ground source heat pump.
Please note that the mezzanine is accessed via a ladder from the lounge and that the sleeping area has restricted space and headroom. Unfortunately (due to its historic nature, steps and ladders) this property does not have wheelchair access and is not suitable for guest with restricted mobility.
