About Yealand Old School

The village of Yealand Conyers contains many buildings dating back to the seventeenth century. The Old School is on one such site which also includes a Quaker Meeting house from the early days of Quaker history.

The Old School itself was established in the eighteenth century and provided a school for children in the nearby villages and farms until 1920s. Since then it has provided accommodation, in particular for young people, including evacuees in 1940s. It has since gone on to provide holiday accommodation for visitors to this quiet beauty spot in a unique historic setting.
