                                                                                                      5 of 5

It's very well laid out and the underfloor heating ensures a nice cosy atmosphere. The signal box is an ideal base to visit Cumbria, The Lake District and the Pennines. Gavin and Wendy are really nice and helpful, without being intrusive and even dropped off a phone charger for me when I mentioned I'd left mine at home. I will be highly recommending this property to my family and friends.
