Waitby School - which is rated as five-star by Visit Britain - is the perfect getaway for all seasons. Built in 1680, Grade ll listed Waitby and Smardale School is now stylish and elegant boutique-style holiday accommodation that sleeps six to seven people in complete comfort.
Standing alone on a breathtaking fell near Kirkby Stephen, Waitby School enjoys glorious uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. The cottage is perfect for unwinding in complete luxury, set in absolute tranquillity, but close enough to Kirkby Stephen for guests not to feel isolated.
Many of Waitby School's original features have been retained, but 21st century luxuries have been incorporated artfully into the building's fabric. Waitby School now has underfloor heating, a Jacuzzi and luxury hand-made kitchen. These are complemented by quality oak and slate flooring, a wood burning stove and hand crafted Buttermere slate surfaces in the kitchen and bathrooms. A flat screen entertainment and Bose sound system with Sky package, a comprehensive DVD and CD collection - for both adults and children - along with a carefully selected library of books, are all designed to help guests relax and ease away the pressures of modern life.
