However the school remains standing proud on the fellside and having been purchased recently by another local family has been lovingly restored in conjunction with English Heritage to offer luxurious holiday accommodation.  The property stands alone and enjoys uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside dotted with livestock and the occasional farmer and tractor at doin up time. \nMany original features have been retained in the restoration of the School including wood panelling wooden double doors the outside boys lavatory complete with seat and of course the school bell. After much careful planning these characterful features have been successfully combined with state of the art fixtures and fittings to create and individual holiday home of great distinction and a most unique holiday experience.

    This our second year visiting Waitby School we absolutely love it, very cosy love the log burner, sky tv, Sonos. 5 minute drive from the local town Kirkby Stephen. Stayed with a group of girls we cooked every day while staying here, the kitchen is well equipped. We will definitely visit again.
