From the owner

Perfectly located for exploring both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks, Bronte School House is a beautiful period holiday cottage simply steeped in history: it was the old Clergy Daughters' School attended by Charlotte and Emily Brontë 1824-25. The property has been sensitively restored preserving the historical character whilst also including modern-day comforts: 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 big roll-top bath after a day's hiking before sinking into the crisp white cotton bedlinen.

On sunny days you can take advantage of the lovely large garden: dine al fresco under the shade of a tree then enjoy relaxing to the sound of the water of Leck Beck with a post lunch coffee, or maybe a glass of something, whilst the kids run around in the garden making their own fun and games!

Brontë School House comfortably sleeps five adults in three bedrooms. On the ground floor is:

- a light and spacious Lounge housing comfy sofas, a wood-burning stove, bookshelves laden with books and magazines, television with digital freeview and DVD player with DVDs; a large bay window provides glorious vistas to the garden and countryside beyond;

- a separate Dining Room with georgian cast-iron columns and wooden panelling dating from an eighteenth century extension to the original property, housing a six seater dining table and chairs; a cushioned window-seat below a victorian sash window provides the perfect spot to sit and read a book;

- a Kitchen with free standing wooden units, ceramic hob/electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and fully equipped with crockery, glassware, cutlery and cooking utensils so that you can do as much or as little cooking as you wish!

- a Bathroom with a wonderful claw foot bath for lazy soaks, a separate freestanding shower, toilet & wash basin.

Original stone stairs lead to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and a separate toilet & wash-basin.

- the Master Bedroom houses a king size brass bed with pocket sprung matress, Victorian cast-iron fireplace and dual window-seats overlooking the garden and open countryside beyond;

- the second Bedroom has twin iron bedsteads with pocket sprung matresses, Victorian cast-iron fireplace and window-seat with views to open countryside; and

- the third Bedroom with its exposed stonework has an edwardian brass bed with pocket sprung mattress and window-seat with views to the sheep or cattle grazing in the neighbouring field;

There is off-road private parking for two vehicles.

Unlimited superfast Internet/Wi-fi at the cottage.
