Some of our impartial reviews...

"Us four adults and three little girls very much enjoyed our early summer holiday at the Bronte Schoolhouse! It is beautifully presented and feels very cosy but was still big enough for seven of us not to feel cramped. The beds were comfortable, bathroom was big (with a gorgeous roll-top bath), and there was plenty of outside space."

"We loved our stay in this charming comfortable carefully restored cottage steeped in history. The cottage was well equipped with lots of information on things to do in the area. I would definitely recommend. Sandra Our host was great. Wish we could of stayed longer."
