About Sandra Barker
My husband and I are both fanatical about old properties so you can imagine when we discovered this property standing empty, as indeed it had for 30 years, we were just so excited! And then to find that this was the very school infamised by Charlotte Bronte in Jane Eyre just ratcheted up that excitement. This building was crying out for someone to care for it, to breathe life back into it; that someone was me! Being a keen traveller myself I know that accommodation is key to a good trip. Finding somewhere built in the local vernacular, that feels warm & welcoming and that also provides 21st century comforts is vital to making you feel part of, and at home in, wherever in the world you happen to be. This is what I’ve striven for, and I do believe achieved, in Bronte School House. I look forward to warmly welcoming you!
Sandra Barker purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Sandra Barker chose Cowan Bridge
Walk into Bronte School House and you fall in love with it! The old stone limewashed walls and the ancient floorboards welcome you home. The Lune Valley where it sits really is one of those hidden gems - perfectly located for exploring both the Lake District & the Yorkshire Dales - with luscious green rolling countryside it truly captures you in its beauty; this is quintessential english countryside at its best.
