DESCRIPTION

Built in 1875, the station at Kirkby Stephen was restored in 2005 and Platform Cottage shares the station building with Booking Office Cottage. It offers excellent accommodation in the beautiful and un-spoilt Upper Eden Valley of Cumbria.

On the platform side you can watch steam-hauled excursion trains or diesel-hauled 2,000-tonne coal trains blasting uphill to Ais Gill summit. The spectacular valley of Mallerstang and Wild Boar Fell are right on your doorstep, the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks are in easy reach as is Hadrian’s Wall to the north. It’s perfect for walking the fells and cycling – as well as travelling on the spectacular Settle & Carlisle line.

The spacious first floor accommodation includes a large kitchen/dining room, lounge area with TV, double bedroom and a shower room with toilet and basin.

At ground floor / platform level there is an entrance hallway to the rear, breakfast kitchen and twin bedroom, both at the front of the station with views to the trains. The twin room has en-suite shower room/toilet. The cottage sleeps four.

There is private parking and an enclosed garden area for Platform Cottage guests.

There are 7 passenger trains calling each way on weekdays and Saturdays, so it is well connected to other stations on the Settle – Carlisle Line and beyond. Freight trains pass through day and night time mostly during weekdays.

Changeover days are Fridays and Mondays:
This enables us to offer stays of: 7 (or 14) nights, (Fri – Fri), Long Weekend Breaks of 3 nights (Fri – Mon) and Mid-week Breaks of 4 nights, (Mon – Fri).

The house has free wi-fi for guests and there is a webcam close by looking north along the railway line.

Please note there is a lower age limit for children of 7 yrs at Platform Cottage. Dogs welcome.
