Check-In Times:


Built in 1875, the station was brought back to its former glory in 2005 by the Sc38;C Railway Trust.

Booking Office Cottage and Platform Cottage are both within the station building itself. They
offer excellent self-catering accommodation for those with an interest in the railway and the beauty of the Upper Eden area.

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 Hadrians Wall to the north. Its the perfect base for walking the fells, cycling, or general exploring – as well as travelling on the spectacular Settle – Carlisle line.

Both cottages sleep up to 4 persons, each having a double room and a twin room.

Changeover days are Mondays and Fridays. This enables us to offer stays of: 7 (or 14) nights, (Friday – Friday or Monday – Monday), Long Weekend Breaks of 3 nights (Fri – Mon) c38; Mid-week Breaks of 4 nights (Mon – Fri).

Because this is a working station on a busy mainline railway, we regret that the cottages are not suitable for children under the age of 7.

Travel Direction:

The Cottages are very easy to get to. There are good rail links from both Leeds and Carlisle taking you right to the front door. By car we are just 15 minutes from junction 38 of the M6, follow the A685 (signposted Brough) for 9 miles.

The station access road being on your right immediately after passing under the railway bridge. If coming from the East, take the A66 at Scotch Corner, then at Brough the A685 to Kirkby Stephen. Pass through the town and the station is a mile further on, up the hill on your left (dont get confused with Kirkby Stephen East station, the preservation site at the bottom of the hill!)
