Important things to note about staying in our cottages:
The cottages are part of the main station building and sit right on the platform.
Although a quiet station, members of the public visit the station throughout the
day, the last passenger train is around 8pm. Freight trains pass through day
and night time mostly during weekdays.

Kirkby Stephen Station is a mile and a half out of the town itself, and sits
on a hillside overlooking the fells and Upper Eden Valley.

Please bear all this in mind when making your booking.
Arrive time is from 3pm and departure time is by 10am
How to find us:
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. Please don’t get
confused with Kirkby Stephen East station, (Stainmore Railway a heritage site), at the bottom of the hill!
