Reviews for Waitby School

Tripadvisor logo

Meet the owner

Emily and George

Waitby School has been in the Broom family since the 1970s, when Tom Broom bought the then-derelict building for his wife, who grew up in Kirkby Stephen and whose family still live in the area. Sadly, Tom died before work could begin on turning the property into a home and it wasn't until 30 years later that his son George took up the challenge of turning Waitby School into a holiday house. Waitby School is a home from home for George, his wife Emily, and their family, who aim to provide a luxurious experience and welcome guests to enjoy the most beautiful scenery and all that the area has to offer.
