Formerly the railway manager’s cottage, Hilton Cottage is located on platform 1 at the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway. It is the third of the railway's quirky self-catering properties.
Benefitting from an extensive renovation, 'The Bungalow' as it’s affectionately known, now offers modernised self-catering accommodation in Ravenglass, perfect for railway cottage holidays. Given its location overlooking a narrow-gauge steam railway line, this single-storey, two-bedroom heritage-themed hideaway will be a hit with railway enthusiasts. Enjoy staying at a heritage steam railway as well as exploring both the coast and country of the Western Lake District.
