Holiday Cottage Kirkby Lonsdale | Yorkshire Dales | Lake District

Enjoy the freedom and flexibility of a self-catering holiday in a beautiful 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 the Bronte sisters 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 cotton bedlinen.

We are open again!

Guests will have sole use of the whole house and with a few modifications to our usual modus operandi social distance will be maintained:

Keys will now be left in a key safe (instead of my meeting you at the property) though I will be readily contactable by phone/Whatsapp/message/e-mail;

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 and AA official Covid cleaning guidelines.

In the event of your being unable to travel to Bronte School House owing to government imposed Covid-19 restrictions we will override our normal cancellation policy and move your booking to another date or refund your payment.

Guests must please 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 must not take any unnecessary risks so that no additional pressure is put on local emergency services such as mountain rescue.

We look forward to welcoming you, take care and stay safe, wishing you all the best, Sandra
