The Old School is the perfect holiday let for a family get-away. Located in the Lyth Valley, famous for its damsons and beautiful scenery.

The space

The Old School served the village of Underbarrow from 1859 until closure and conversion in the 1980s. We used it for family holidays from 2000 until we let it on holiday lets in 2007. We hope that it retains something of that family home atmosphere.

The house has 2 double bedrooms, and 1 twin single bedroom, 1 bedroom with a bunk bed, a large family sitting room with a multi-fuel stove, family dining room and newly refurbished kitchen, and a large garden leading down to a babbling beck.

The house can accommodate up to 12 through the use of a double sofa bed and 2 single 'z' beds.

Following guest reviews of the showers, we have installed a new power shower in the bedroom (August 2014).

We really enjoyed the house. We loved the space inside the house, and loved the outside, especially the stream. The whole place was really good value for money. The kids loved the big space in the house and loved running around and playing hide and seek. The dining room and dining table was very big. The living room was also spacious. The view from the upstairs bedroom to the stream and outside was amazing. Would recommend the place.

The Old School is a wonderful place to come as a family or group of friends - or both, as we did! The stream running through the garden is fab for the kids (ours had raft-making competitions and spent a good deal of time in their swimming kits running up and down), as is the tree house. Well-equipped kitchen, we spent lots of time eating as a big group in the dining room and on the patio. We went for days out in easily-accessible Ambleside, Rydal and Fell Foot, but would have been equally happy spending all of our time in the beautiful garden listening to the sounds of birds, cows and the stream. Highly recommended.

The old school is a beautiful back drop and base for a visit to the lakes. The house is spacious, the beds very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. It is very quiet and perfect for a family holiday. Ellen provided lots of local information to help us enjoy the trip. We had a great time.

Ideal family and dog friendly home for a holiday! Easy to get to and close enough to the scenic local towns and beautiful lakes. Facilities were great, Wifi and good kitchen.

The Old Schoolhouse was perfect for our family and friends and a great base for exploring the Lake District. There is also plenty of great walking locally, and the local pub - the Black Labrador - is a great place for a lazy drink and good feed. Fantastic have the beck (stream) at the bottom of the garden, where our daughter enjoyed a brief (shalllow) swim one afternoon. Highly recommended.
