Whitwell Station was recommended by my sister. Although in the past her advice has
been dubious. This time I was glad I didn't go with my instinct.
The accommodation is really great. Lots of room, all the gadgets you could ever
need and good views. More than enough room for the four of us.
Michelle, Robin, Dave & Maria plus our two pets Harry & Stanley
Lovely! Its a change from the normal accommodation and will recommend to
family and friends.

Eagerly Anticipated Return
This has been an eagerly anticipated return visit and after 3 years Whitwell Station
is still as delightful as ever, with a warm welcome from Graham, Julia and family.
Whitwell is an ideal base and 'Primrose ' would be a perfect holiday home even without
the railway connection.
The fact that we stay in a former railway station makes this one of our favourite places
to stay and we are already thinking ahead when we can visit again.
Thank you for the best holiday we have had in years. We have stayed in many places
but nothing like this.
Pam, Ray and Bev
Thank you fro a very comfortable stay. What a terrific restoration you've done on the
old station everything so authentic. As a keen railway enthusiasts we could not have
found a better place to stay. When turning into the station approach it was like turning
the clock back 50 years.
