Very nice place
A handy, comfortable place which has most facilities you need. We went as a family at Easter and it was very easy to find: just off the M6 motorway! It has nice decor and a couple whio tell you about the history of the place. I left a suggestion there that it could do with a washing machine and possibly a DVD player. Ideal for Lake District, Morcombe beach and Dales.

Perfect location for The Dales and Lake District
A great place to stay if you want easy access to the Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District. Warm comfortable house with all the amenities. Plenty of room to park off the road.

We found The Old School a lovely comfortable stay. It was very convenient for touring the Lake District and gave us everything we needed. We will certainly return.
Mr Horton

The location was perfect, the house itself was brilliant we had everything we needed and we were very comfortable. We were very happy with the house, and the hosts were lovely. The house had a lovely feel to it and I would be interested to see what it used to look like as a school. 10/10, we would recommend!
Miss Nokes

The cottage was lovely and had everything we could have possibly needed and more! It was ideally situated for South Lakes and West Yorkshire. It was spotlessly clean and the owners made us feel very welcome. The photos on the website do not do it justice, it is much nicer than they show. We hope to return next year.
