Kirkby Stephen is the only working station building
on the line where you can stay for a self-catering break.
It couldnít be easier to arrive by train - the front door
is on the platform as you get off the train! With 7 trains
calling each way on weekdays and Saturday's itís
well connected to the rest of the national rail network,
(there is a good bus service from Oxenholme). Or if you
come by car, the station is a 15 minute hop from junction
38 on the M6.
Enjoy your breakfast & watch trains go by your window
You can stay at Kirkby Stephen station in Cumbria, on the world famous Settle & Carlisle Line. Built in 1875, the station was beautifully restored in 2005 by the S&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.
Both Cottages boast great views. 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, or look the other way to
see glorious views of the fells.
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 Hadrianís Wall to the north. Itís the perfect base for walking the fells, cycling, or general exploring - as well as travelling on the spectacular Settle & Carlisle line.

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.
