Mrs Butler
July 2015
This was a very comfortable property, fairly central and well placed for the Lakes but not so close for the town to be crowded. There was plenty of room and equipment for four people. We found Hillside to be very much a home from home.
Mr Dover
August 2015
The cottage is very convenient and has everything needed for a good holiday. It is convenient for the lakes and in a wonderfully relaxing location to get away from it all.
Mrs Sedgwick
December 2014
Comfortable, pristine, yet home from home familiarity. In peaceful surroundings, accessible with no short cuts made to any detail. My first holiday ever taken alone and I felt safe and relaxed.

Mrs Raffle

The property was very comfortable and clean. The location was very central to Grange, we loved Grange-over-Sands with the promenade and local shops. The area provided a range of activities to keep all members of the family happy. We particularly enjoyed our trip to Leighton Moss RSPB reserve on the train.

Mrs Jackson
April 2014
We had an absolutely fabulous holiday! The accommodation was just as described, if not more so. Everybody was friendly and even had time to fuss over our puppy! Grange-over-Sands is an excellent place to stay for a relaxing holiday with plenty to do in surrounding areas.
Mrs Galway
June 2014
The week we spent in Hillside was truly excellent. The property was superb throughout in terms of equipment, decor,comfort and security. Additional thoughtful touches made our stay a really pleasant one. It was located in a quiet cul-de-sac close to Grange, so convenient for shopping and exploring the locality,as well as for the good bus and train services. There is so much to explore in this part of Cumbria. One of the best holidays we have had.
Mr Wyatt
September 2014

Mrs Dunscombe
October 2013
Very clean, very comfortable property, fitted out to a very high standard. We felt completely at home. The views were to die for. The town itself was only a 10 minute walk away, and had a very good range of cafes and shops. Very pleasant walks along the well kept ornamental gardens and duck pond, also the promenade (accessible through the tunnel under the railway line). Highly recommend the walk through Eggerslack Wood up to Hampsfell Hospice, with amazing views over Morecambe Bay and the Kent Estuary. Would love to return.
Mrs McGill
November 2013
Excellent property, all furnishings and equipment to a high standard. Everything you need for a lovely holiday. Lovely house with lovely views. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting a holiday in the lovely lake district.

The cottage was beautiful, could not fault it.
Mr Turner
July 2013
This was a quality property that was certainly a 'home from home'. Some lovely thoughtful things had been provided such as DVD films, board games, two brand new pedal cycles, a washing machine and tumble dryer. Such a relaxing holiday in extremely pleasant surroundings.

Everything about this cottage was first class. We had a lovely holiday and everything that you could possibly need was provided, the decor and furnishings were lovely and of a good standard.

The property was located in an ideal spot. It was close to the town and all amenities and a pleasant walk from the promenade. Exploring the Lake District was easily on hand. The property was excellent and offered every possible thing you needed for every type of short break/holiday.
Mrs Davies
October 2012
Been to this property 3 times in 1 year speaks for itself. All suits us perfectly.
Mrs Shorrock
October 2012
Stayed at hillside March 2012. When we arrived we found it to be as nice as when we last visited. Is well cared for. I liked the location easy to get to other parts of the Lake District but with nice walks from the door.
Mrs Dutton
May 2012
The area and views. Windermere steam train and boat trip. The house was superb in quality and absolutely spotless clean.
Ms Stacey

Mrs Shorrock

We visit the Lake District often and really enjoyed being able to stay in 5 star pet friendly accommodation. We enjoyed our stay so much at Hillside that when I got back I booked the accommodation for a week at the end of September.
Mr Short

Mr Elson
September 2012
Very good area for exploring the lakes. A lot of work has gone into the accommodation to make it comfortable and it is one of the best we have found.
Mr Roberts
November 2011
This property is a credit to its owner, tastefully decorated just like 'home from home', ideal for touring the southern lakes but still good road contacts to the motorway. Grange-over-Sands is not to busy and with its walks along the front it made an ideal late break. We will book this property again if available next year.
Mr Price
March 2012
The whole holiday was perfect! I could not fault anything with the property. It was exactly as advertised on your site. Excellent and would use again!
Mr Smith
October 2011
The cottage was of an exceptional standard. Everything was provided to make your holiday memorable. It was lovely to watch the sea coming in on the bay from the kitchen and lounge window. Our son was most impressed with the wifi and size of the TV in the cottage.
Mr Shaw
October 2011
Hillside was beautiful, comfortably furnished and very well equipped. The cottage was impeccably clean and the views over the bay did not disappoint. It is also in an excellent location for exploring the Lake District, and we even whiled away a few hours in Grange-over-Sands.
Mrs Davies
September 2011
The booking staff were very helpful. The utility area on the ground floor was excellent for wet walking clothes and for feeding the dog. Really well thought out, really lovely property all round.
Mr Goodrick
October 2011
The cottage was excellent and the location is perfect for exploring all of the Lakes. The cottage itself is of an extremely high standard, I can not think of anything to improve it. All the extras made it really special! We will definitely be back.
Mrs Haynes
September 2011
This property is a home away from home. It was extremely comfortable with top of the range appliances. The cottage is light and cheerful and close to many amenities.
Beverley S
October 2014
This is the best property we have stayed. It is clean,tidy modern and everything you can think of to make your stay perfect. It is a credit to the owners? Grange itself is a small town but very friendly people are here and dogs are catered for most of the time? Would definitely come back again and a must to stay at Hillside. Thank you
May 2015
This is the nicest cottage I have ever spent a holiday in. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and care into making it a comfortable and homely place to stay. It is spotlessly clean, has all the modern conveniences, lovely furniture and a beautiful patio garden to relax in. The location is close to town and yet in a peaceful setting with a beautiful view. Grange itself is a picturesque little town with a long promenade and lovely gardens. It has a bakery making sumptuous bread and cakes which opens early for those eager to start the day with fresh bread. I would definately return and recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in the Lake District.

Just back from spending Monday-Friday in this lovely house. The house itself was immaculate. Good quality. Well equipped kitchen but we never used as ate out all the time. The outside was equally good with the decking. Would definitely stay again. Great for dogs aswell
Mrs Coverdale
June 2011
We had a great break away, the situation was ideal and the standard of the property was excellent which went towards making our stay memorable.
Miss Miller
August 2011
The cottage is beautiful. We were really taken aback and it was much more than we ever expected, especially for such a good price. Even the extra's made all the difference, such as bikes to use, DVDs, jigsaw, books and boardgames. The family were never bored on an evening. Lots of wardrobe space and storage, and the kitchen was amazing, it really did have everything. The owners should be proud to own such a beautiful cottage in a lovely location and they have made an exceptional effort in ensuring your stay here is perfect. I will definitely be returning. The whole family loved it, even our small dog!
Mrs Richardson
October 2011
An excellent cottage with almost everything we needed. Excellent views and a definite home from home atmosphere as soon as we arrived.
December 2013
Extremely well presented cottage. Quiet, and in good central location, though some people would find the steep hill something of a challenge. We are regular visitors to Grange,and enjoy its slightly oldfashioned charm,excellent butchers,bakery, and brass band concerts. Many places are accessible by bus or train so there is no need to use a car. Only crticism was the total absence of cleaning materials - and the elegant but rather difficult to use bathroom taps!
August 2013
Wonderfully updated and comfortable accommodation. Taking the dog for a walk challenging with hills but loved Grange over Sands and views from Hillside were refreshing and lovely We did have mostly good weather to benefit, once the morning mists lifted. Roomy and

Pros Spotlessly clean and well prepared. Comfortable beds and every permanent thing you might need.Lake district attractions were all available.Broadband fine, tele good. Cons absolutley nothing left no cleaning, washing up, tea bags, spare loo roll etc which other cottages we've used have. Major shopping expedition needed when we arrived-inconvenient after travel from IW! A welcome pack would make this place extra special. Also we took the cottage because it is dog permitted but there is no lawn in the garden: just decking. I managed but dog wee and poo which I always clear up anyway had to be washed off the wood with purchased disenfectant. We do expect to be able to sit in the garden with the dog and deal with late night eliminations there. That is why we take cottage as against hotel with dog.
March 2013
We have just returned from a weeks stay at Hillside and there is absolutely nothing to fault with this accommodation. The decor is lovely and all the furnishings are to a very high standard, my son loved the internet and if I am honest so did I. We loved that we could take our dog with us, Grange is very dog friendly and the residents were lovely when you were out walking your dog, everyone said good morning, we even found a restaurant that let us take her in with us to eat (area on one side for dog lovers) Gilpin Bridge Inn if anyone is interested, vegetable risotto is to die for!! The house was lovely and warm and everything you could possibly need is there. At some point we will return to Grange and Hillside is where we want to stay, we all came back a lot fitter than when we went, just need to keep it up now!! Do stay in this cottage you will not be disappointed.
December 2011
Everything was as described. A modern, recently refurbished home with all the amenities we required. Fantastic views over Morcambe Bay, the only downside is the steep hill to access the property. Not ideal for a winter location which is often what we do. Could do with somewhere to hang coats, put boots when entering the property during wet weather.
April 2012
Information and directions were easy to follow. Cottage was everything we imagined. Disappointed with local amenities at that time of year not many places open for dining and entertainment. Good walks for my dogs.
December 2011
Perfect location for touring the lakes, and Grange-over-Sands is a lovely place in its own right. The cottage itself is well furnished, with some very nice touches like the Bt-vision box for the TV, and the Rangemaster stove in the kitchen. It was also nice to be able to take our dog with us, and for the cottage to be clean, with no trace of previous dogs.
January 2012
A credit to its owner everything was clean and tidy and well laid out,grange over sands is quiet and compact place to stay, sykes the booking agents where first class and very helpful in every detail. Yes I will return to Hillside this year if possible its dog freindly our westie loved the underfloor heating thought it was great.One other recommendation would be visit Higginsons the butchers possibly the best pies I have ever eaten which I might add is a lot.To say would I recommend to anyone yes I would really enjoyed the stay shame the weather was not a bit drier but so still enjoyed it.
