Holiday Rental House
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?

Interaction with guests
I give my guests space, but am there if needed. We live nearby and always come to say hello either as you arrive or shortly after, just to make you feel welcome and to help point out important information. After that we leave you very much to yourselves, unless you want to interact or if there is an issue and you need our assistance.
