About the property

A piece of locomotive history, this former Station Waiting Room dating back to 1848 was converted in the 1930s into a dwelling with sympathetic internal modernisation.

Maintaining its timbered Furness railway structure, the property offers spacious accommodation with the addition of an extension incorporating a private balcony; now a truly, unique and beautiful holiday property.

The timber-clad exterior has been carefully preserved and Station House still retains its chocolate box charm.

Ideally located on the Cumbrian Coast in the popular village of St Bees at the start of the Coast to Coast Walk, and just a few miles from the Lake District National Park with all the major tourist sites within easy distance.

Inside, Station House has been lovingly decorated to create a warm and welcoming space.

The lounge comes complete with plush sofas and a log-effect electric heater, perfect for nights curled up in front of the wall-mounted TV.

The kitchen/diner is decorated in a light and airy country style, you'll find everything you need for self-catering holiday.

Leading from the kitchen is the bathroom, complete with walk in shower.

The sun lounge is another comfortable place to relax, with doors opening out to the patio and garden.

Leading on from the living areas are the bedrooms, the first being a double room boasting space for a cot, and the second bedroom offers two single beds.

Outside there is ample parking space, and a well-proportioned garden with furniture and a barbecue.

The station is a stop on the scenic Cumbrian Coast Line south-west of Carlisle, adjacent to the property is a manned signal box and a level crossing.

Located in the centre of the village with all the local amenities close by, this is often the start for many walking enthusiasts beginning the Coast to Coast walk.

The village is just south of St Bees Head, which is the most westerly point of Cumbria and only 50 miles from the Scottish border, offering a dog-friendly beach to spend a day with your canine companion.

The Georgian town of Whitehaven is five miles to the north and is known as one of the 40 Gem Towns of England.

Just 15 miles south, Ravenglass is a quiet, coastal village with picturesque coastal walks.

The Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway is a 15-inch narrow gauge heritage track and the seven-mile line runs from Ravenglass to Dalegarth Station near Boot, in the Valley of Eskdale, in the Lake District.

The Station House is a homely, unique and beautiful chocolate box cottage ideal for couples or families looking for a characterful base from which to explore the Western Lake District and coast.

About the location


Whitehaven 5 miles.

St. Bees is an historic seaside village on the west coast of Cumbria with a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a shop, post office and old traditional pubs. It's an ideal base for exploring the western Lake District and Cumbrian coast, and is the start of the famous Wainwright coast to coast walk. St. Bees Head is the only major sea cliff between Wales and Scotland and is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria. There is a fine beach and many wonderful walks are available along the clifftops, which are also home to one of England’s most important seabird colonies. There is also a nine-hole golf course in the village. Nearby Whitehaven, an elegant Georgian port, and the spectacular western Lakes, are more than worthy of a visit. Muncaster Castle is 8 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway. Cockermouth, the birth place of Wordsworth, and Keswick on Derwentwater are also within easy driving distance.
