With regard to the two "No" answers above please note: I have a library corner full of books that cannot possibly all be sanitised so I will advise guests not to touch them until 72 hrs have elapsed since the last guests (this will only be a max of 24hrs as I am leaving min 48 hrs between bookings) I am not removing all cushions but will be changing cushion covers inbetween guests and as all covers are cotton or linen they can be washed on a full 60 degree cycle

Our Inspector's View

Perfectly located for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District, 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. Step inside and you will find snowy-white limewashed walls, original floorboards and beams, exposed stonework and cushioned window seats. There is a log-burner for chilly nights and garden for sunny days, off-street parking and superfast broadband.

About The area

Discover Cumbria

Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.

Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
