Hillberry Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Hillberry is a spacious, semi-detached cottage located in Grange-over-Sands in Cumbria. The cottage is set over four floors and can sleep eight people in four bedrooms, including a king-size double, a twin with an en-suite shower room, a single, and a family room. The rest of the cottage comprises of two family bathrooms, a cloakroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area with French doors to a sunny paved veranda with furniture, and a sitting room with Juliet balcony. Outside there is off road parking for three cars. Hillberry is a delightful cottage, set in an ideal location for exploring the Lake District and the Cumbrian coast, and would suit any family.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L'Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Set amidst the southern lakes, this attractive town makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

We just stayed at Hillberry for a week and could not fault it. The house is clean and spacious and everything has been thought of by the owners - down to the ice packs in the freezer, kiddy friendly equipment and even a welcome chocolate cake! The location is fantastic as well with Grange being big enough to have quite a few shops but not being too busy like the heart of the Lake District. You don't spend hours in traffic jams here but its about 20 mins drive to some great locations. The best thing about this place is that it doesnt feel like a rental and more like a home to stay in for a week. (albeit a lot cleaner than our own!). On top of that, the owners are very welcoming and always about if you need any help. Would recommend and use again Alistair

A warm welcome waited for us from the owners when we arrived at the property. The property was exceptionally clean and spacious and easily met our requirements, with fluffy towels and good quality bed linen. The covered patio at the rear of the property was ideal for relaxing after a full day out whatever the weather. It was convenient for visiting Lake Windermere and further afield, and close enough without being in the hustle and bustle. The grandchildren had lots of fun playing hide and seek over the 4 floors of the property. Not to be missed is a walk along the promenade to watch the tide rushing in, quite a sight to see. A big thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your amazing house. We would have no hesitation to recommend it to others.

The property was very clean and included everything we could possibly have wished for in terms of furnishings, utilities, kitchen equipment and space. The whole property was well decorated and it was a pleasure to spend time 'at home'. Everything had been thought of and an excellent selection of DVDs and books, as well as board games, made for easy leisure and family activities. We were particularly pleased with the garden and the extensive parking - as we brought 3 cars which fitted easily in the driveway. All the bathrooms came with hand-soap and toilet paper provided, which was very helpful. The biggest plus for the property was its size, which was large enough to hold our 3 families and provided space for privacy, but also accommodated everyone in a cosy living/dining area.

Hillberry is the nicest, most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. The fittings and furnishings are top quality and no expense has been spared. Extremely spacious and light. Lovely views and a good sized, covered outdoor seating and eating area and a nice garden. A treat to come back to after days out and about. Highly recommended.

A great house which was easy to live in. There was a nice communal area for the whole family, and an especially lovely kitchen and bathrooms. The attention to detail was very impressive.

Everything about Hillberry was great and Grange over Sands is a fantastic holiday venue. We particularly liked the garden and outside dining area, the cleanliness and layout of the house was also good.

The accommodation offered at Hillberry was very clean and spacious and provided everything you could need for a home away from home. Our party of 6 adults found there was plenty of room to relax and enjoy the surroundings, including pleasant evenings in the garden. All rooms were nicely decorated, clean and comfortable, guides were provided for the local area and plenty of books, games and videos to keep everyone happy. Parking at the house enabled us to easily park our three cars. Overall we had a fantastic time, the weather was sunny and hot every day and we did not want to go home. Thank you to the owners, you have a lovely place there and we would recommend it as a great place to stay if visiting the Lake District and you want a more relaxed environment away from the hustle and bustle of the larger holiday places.

Hillberry was perfect for entertaining friends and family with great views over the bay. The property was central to all amenities and Grange itself is a lovely unspoilt place.

Beautiful house with amazing views. Owners couldn't have made better provisions of items needed when away from home. Plenty of space for our family and a perfect base location to explore the lakes. This place has it all, you can stay and not venture or travel around. Lovely friendly owners would definitely stay again.

The holiday was brilliant, we really enjoyed the spacious warm and contemporary house finished to a very high standard. The pictures on the internet do not do it justice. We had a warm but unobtrusive welcome from the property owners. The WiFi was excellent and so was the sky package on the main television. The location was close to the shops, sea front and good walks so everything for the walker and shopaholic. We would definitely recommend it, you will not be disappointed and we fully intend to book further stays.

Overall the house was excellent inside and out, and suited our needs perfectly.

I have rarely if ever marked something excellent all across the board but this property was. Everything was there in abundance, crockery, cutlery, bedding was 100% cotton and the towels were lovely and fluffy! House was excellent and good for the legs with all the stairs! Bathrooms were good and the shower, I have to admit, was one of the best ever that I have used.

An outstanding property. So clean, tidy, spacious and well positioned in a pretty village with good walks amenities and public transport round the lakes, 100% satisfied. The photos do not do the place credit, it is far nicer with views to Morecambe Bay.

Fabulous, spacious house which easily accommodated our party of eight. Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped. Clearly a great deal of thought and care has gone into the planning and upkeep of this lovely property. The owners were very friendly and have perfected the ideal balance of being helpful and on hand if required but not intrusive. Perfect covered area to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine when it appeared with clear roof providing shelter when the weather was not so kind! We enjoyed playing board games at the splendid dining table and appreciated the home-made chocolate cake and chilled wine that awaited our arrival. Our party ranged from age 11 to almost 80 - everyone loved Hilberry and would be very happy to return. Well done and many thanks to the owners.

This house is lovely! Lovely large bedrooms. Multiple bathrooms. Brilliant well equipped kitchen and large dining table. Very spacious and great for kids - black out blinds, 2 x cots, high chair. Lovely covered outside area for sitting (bit of a drop on grass area so children need supervision). Great location near shops in Grange, near to the prom. Grange itself is close for day out in Lakes. Highly recommend it.

First class accommodation. Perfect size for 4 women on a girls weekend for a special birthday. Owner could not have been more accommodating; the house was warm, comfortable and suited all of our needs. Would recommend the local butchers, vegetable shop and cafes. Good walk along the esplanade from Grange to Kent's Bank Station.

Our party ranged in age from 11 - 80 , everyone enjoyed their stay and would be delighted to return.
