In line with the government’s latest advice we are currently obliged in law to remain closed until at least 4th July 2020. As soon as it is reasonable and safe to do so and in compliance with government guidance/legislation we will be reopening.

We were given a glimmer of hope last night by the culture secretary that domestic tourism may return this summer! The government has “a very ambitious plan” to get domestic tourism up and running by the beginning of July. Watch this space!.…….

I’m happy that we will safely be able to open Bronte School House in July (if legal to do so) as guests will have sole use of the whole house and with a few modifications to our usual modus operandi social distance can be maintained:

Keys will be left in a key safe (instead of my meeting you at the property to give you the keys);

At least two days will be left between bookings to ensure adequate time for cleaning/disinfecting.

We will be undertaking additional disinfecting over and above our normal very high standard of cleaning and will be adhering to the VisitEngland official guidelines currently being drawn up (due to be released early June).

Guests must take every care when out walking on the fells to ensure that they are well prepared for all weather eventualities, are wearing suitable footwear and clothing and take no unnecessary risks to ensure where possible that additional pressure is not put on local emergency services such as mountain rescue.

We look forward to welcoming you, hopefully this summer, but until then take care and stay safe, wishing you all the best, Sandra

Enjoy a self-catering holiday in a historically significant period property. Perfectly located for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks with walks galore from your doorstep. Comfortably sleeps 5 in 3 bedrooms, wifi, off-road parking, log-burner, garden.

Great for families or groups of friends who love the big outdoors and particularly for those who have an interest in classical literature as well! This place is simply steeped in history: it was the old Clergy Daughters' School attended by Charlotte and Emily Brontë 1824-25 and was infamously portrayed as 'Lowood' in Jane Eyre!

Step inside and you will find snowy-white limewashed walls, original floorboards and beams, exposed stonework and cushioned window seats. The property is well equipped with everything you could want for a comfortable stay. Enjoy relaxing by the log-burner in the cosy sitting room or taking a long soak in the roll-top bath after a day’s hiking before sinking into comfy beds and crisp white cotton bedlinen.
