This unusual and unique property is a Victorian, Grade II listed converted ticket office, offering a romantic retreat for two people.

This Victorian, Grade II listed ticket office has been imaginatively converted and has retained many of its original features. The sitting, kitchen and dining area are all on open plan, and the compact, well-equipped kitchen and farmhouse style dining area are cleverly screened by the spiral staircase from the warm and inviting sitting room with its original ticket office cast iron fireplace and tiles. Winding through this delightfully quirky property, the spiral stairs go up to the eaves where the cosy and intimate cabin style bedroom awaits, and the bathroom is also housed in this space. The lawned area to the front of the property may be enjoyed by the guests. This is a beautiful property and makes a perfect hideaway to enjoy this area.


RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

As stated in other reviews, fantastic if you are a steam train fan, obviously why people book. Hated the spiral staircase, freezer compartment in fridge was not efficient. There is only 1 window that opens, this is in the form of a sky light in the bedroom area, which, unless you are 6ft plus [ which we are not] you have to take a chair upstairs and stand on it in order to open the window. The water in the shower was usually cold, at best, luke warm. There is a switch downstairs to turn on landing light, but no switch upstairs. The bed was difficult to get in and out of, like sleeping in a cupboard. Parking can be awkward, when we arrived, our space was being used by people from Station House next door, took a while to find drivers for cars to be moved. We would not return, left on Friday afternoon, so did not encounter 'silent' cleaners.

Saved by it's location.
I'm a massive (6'5") rail fan and selected this cottage largely cos of this. The location is fantastic. The downstairs of the property is nice but retains little of the original detail. The spiral stair looks OK but is not great for a big man. Upstairs.........Well, no pics I notice. The bed....Very comfy when you can get in but rubbish covers. We swapped around so that we could get in/out easily. The bathroom....No room for me to get clean after the loo. Power points upstairs impossible. Obviously done on the cheap. Next door is massive and some room should have been given to the Ticket Office. Ms Jones the owner was cold on the phone (they have 5 properties) Cleaning staff turn up early of the Saturday leaving day and don't speak. Totall unsuitable for elderly/disabled folk.

In a wonderful location with steam trains passing by, and it was a short drive to the coast. It was everything you needed for a relaxing holiday.

The Ticket Office is a quirky and unusual place to stay. Interesting spiral staircase. Cosy and warm. Novelty to have your own personal train platform and trains passing your window.Everything you need for a holiday stay. Some beautiful areas to explore nearby and a lovely walk along the river Esk or down the cinder track into Whitby
