General Information

Please visit this page and our T&C's below to see the latest updates. Our full joining instructions and "T&C's" along with other documents can be downloaded at the bottom of this page, here are some key items for your assistance.
  • Initial entry should be via the Platform door. Further details are provided just prior to your stay.
  • The Lane has  shared usage, please do not speed and take due care and attention whilst driving along it.
  • Parking is only permitted on the lane, please do not obstruct the fire exits. Please don't park on the grass, the railway car park or adjacent to the campfire area.
  • Key Safe houses the rest of the keys for Station House and is located in the kitchen above the fire extinguishers. Please be aware that all external doors will open from the inside even when locked due to fire regulations. Don't get locked out!
  • Departure  ensure all windows and external doors are shut and locked. All electrical items (including the water heater on the kitchen windowsill) are switched off other than storage heaters, fridges and freezers that should be left on. Please sign off the Redmire Cleaning Schedule, a copy can be found in a file on the shelf by the key safe in the kitchen.
  • Boots and Shoes please ensure that outside shoes are not worn in the premises and do not block the fire exits.
  • Food and Drink not to be taken upstairs, please leave it in the kitchen.
  • Sleeping facilities Station House has four bedrooms upstairs that accommodate 20 people in single bunk beds. There are two rooms which sleep 7 people and two further rooms that sleep 4 and 2. Residents need to bring their own sleeping bags / linen, pillows, and towels to the premises.
  • Cleaning all floors, surfaces, washroom facilities, bedroom furniture and fireplaces must be fully cleaned. There are vacuum cleaners and colour coordinated mop and buckets (for each type of hard floor) but you should bring your own household cleaning products and materials.
  • Fires It's your responsibility to bring adequate wood or manufactured fuel for your stay. It is illegal to burn wet wood or coal on indoor fires. Please feel free to make use of the open fires but remember that children especially will not be familiar with open fires and should be supervised.
  • Rubbish We encourage you to use the nearest recycling area which can be found in the main public car park in Leyburn, just off the market square.  There are 2 large 'wheelie' bins for any waste that can't be recycled. These are collected fortnightly. Please collect one from the end of the lane, where you came in and return it at the end of your stay. 
  • TV, WIFI and Mobile The premises do not hold its own TV License nor does it have WIFI. Mobile signal is generally quite good in Station House depending on the operator.
  • Trainline please ensure that you keep off the railway tracks, they are still in use. The platform outside the barriers is part of the Wensleydale Railway and is therefore out of bounds except when alighting a train. Similarly, people using the service will enter and exit via the car park at the side of the premises and should not climb over the protective fence. We have an excellent relationship with the Railway and a ride on the train is an interesting way of seeing the local countryside.
  • First Aid Kit please bring your own, there are none on the premises.
