Waitby School

A five-star gold self-catering holiday home

An historic and luxurious holiday cottage set amid some of England’s most stunning countryside, Waitby School – rated as Five-Star Gold by Enjoy England and finalist in the Cumbrian Tourism Awards 2010 – is the perfect getaway for all seasons.

Originally built in 1680, Grade II listed Waitby and Smardale School is now stylish boutique-style holiday accommodation sleeping six to seven people in complete comfort.

Standing alone on a breathtaking fell near Kirkby Stephen in the Eden Valley, Waitby School enjoys glorious uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. This cottage is perfect for unwinding in complete luxury, set in absolute tranquillity, but close enough to Kirkby Stephen for guests not to feel isolated.
