Platform 1 is the result of a total refurbishment completed in 2009 to create a contemporary living space of a very high quality and comfort. It conserves the main architectural features combined with cool modern style. The self-catering accommodation can easily provide for up to four persons comprising of one double bedroom with en-suite; a separate shower room with WC; a large 'dream' kitchen and a very spacious lounge with a comfortable sofa bed for two. Because the area is a delight to visit all year round, a lot of attention has been paid to make sure you’ll be comfortable whenever you come to stay.

It conserves the main architectural features combined with cool modern style. The self-catering accommodation can easily provide for up to four persons comprising of one double bedroom with en-suite; a separate shower room with WC; a large 'dream' kitchen and a very spacious lounge with a comfortable sofa bed for two. Because the area is a delight to visit all year round, a lot of attention has been paid to make sure you’ll be comfortable whenever you come to stay. Platform 1 is naturally cool in the summer, and is warm and cosy in the winter with underfloor heating and a traditional log burning stove with wood provided. Regardless of the season or the weather outside, you can be sure that inside it’ll be just right. Space is something you'll find in abundance – this was after all one of the most imposing stations on the line in its day, as befitted the Earl of Carlisle and his important guests who used it. The sitting room, for example, was the former waiting room, and the large arched windows flanked by the original shutters allow the morning sunlight to cascade into this delightful room. Two comfortable sofas and a large dining table with chairs are arranged within the roomy interior. It's a very pleasing environment in which to relax, absorb yourself with your favourite book or watch Sky digital free-view channels on the large Sony Brava flat-screen TV. And if you should need to stay connected to the internet, wi-fi is available at no extra charge. Cross the hall to the kitchen, the style of which could easily grace the pages of a fashionable lifestyle magazine. You may not be planning to spend too much time cooking, but here you'll find everything you need. There is a large electric cooking range, microwave, fridge freezer, dish washer, uncluttered cool granite worktops, and fully-equipped with cutlery, crockery, glassware and utensils, really everything you’ll need. The light, cool, colour scheme provides a pleasant place to be, from when you’re making the first cup of tea of the day, right up to cracking open that eagerly anticipated bottle of wine in the evening. As you pass through the corridor to your bedroom, take a moment to glance out of the window into the inner courtyard – a little haven where well-stocked feeders tempt a wide variety of wild birds and even the local woodpecker population. Beyond the separate modern shower room and WC, you enter the comfortable bedroom. This simple but highly-functional room has been designed with custom built wardrobe and side tables providing plenty of storage to take care of everything during your stay. Comfort is assured with a superior grade, anti-allergenic mattress and fine quality bedding for a pleasant night's sleep – even for those who suffer from allergies. The deep recessed 'arrow slit' windows are an unusual feature of the original station buildings. The bedroom has plenty of natural light provided by the courtyard windows and a Velux skylight with a blackout shield remotely controlled with a solar powered device. Conveniently situated off the bedroom is the en-suite facility comprising of WC and wash basin. In addition to your internal accommodation, there is a patio area and outdoor furniture for your exclusive use in fine weather; plenty of car parking and secure undercover accommodation for bikes. During your stay, don't miss the private wildlife garden set on an acre of land alongside the railway line. This delightful area, which includes a huge pond, has become a thriving habitat for frogs, butterflies and many species of wild birds.More

This is a delightful place to stay. The apartment itself is very comfortable. It’s warm and cosy, but spacious, with underfloor heating, and a wood burner that takes minutes to light and get burning.. the huge windows mean that unlike most typical old cottages, it...More
