    Platform Cottage as its' name suggests is situated on the southbound (Up in Railway parlace) platform at Kirkby Stephen on the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway.

    The recently converted accommodation sleeps up to six over two floors.

    You can watch trains go by, take a trip along the spectacular railway to Settle or Carlisle (or with two changes, Paris), walk amongst the rugged Cumbrian fells or just relax.

    Outside there is dedicated parking for up to two cars and an adjacent enclosed garden area for the exclusive use of Platform Cottage guests.

    Please note that due to the accommodation location we can only accept children over the age of 7yrs.

    Kirkby Stephen is the only working station building on the line where you can stay for a self-catering break.
    It couldn’t be easier to arrive by train - the front door is on the platform as you get off the train!
    There are 7 trains calling each way on weekdays and Saturdays (3 on Sundays)so it’s well connected to the rest of the national rail network via Leeds and Carlisle. Two changes and you are in Paris...

    If you come by car, the station is a 15 minute hop from junction 38 on the M6.

A great place to stay on a working station even better than we expected. Comfortable warm well equipped and a good welcome on arrival. Great for watching the trains perfect for walking . We even had the first snow of winter when we were up in the hills. more

As the venue for a holiday together with our extended family demanded, these cottages provided the perfect location for an altogether great time. We booked both cottages which we found to be incredibly homely, as well as thoughtfully and tastefully equipped. We lacked nothing during the week we stayed on the platform, and the "esprit ferroviaire" added a very interesting slant to our stay, contributing great value - trips on the train and interactions with the general travelling public featured in every single day, and didn't fail to spark the curiosity of even the furthest removed from train-buffs (there being only one in our party).

Platform cottage is not for those in search of a completely private and secluded getaway, but for those who are interested in getting to know the area, as well as its inhabitants, a stay next to the tracks is highly recommended.
