I booked a group of 12 cyclists into Somerset House when we were doing the Bay Way Cycle route. We chose the two wettest days in June and we arrived at the Band B after cycling all day in torrential rain. We were all dripping wet and cold but nonetheless we were given a warm welcome - the bikes were... More

We stayed here one night while doing the Morecambe Bay Cycleway. Geraldine and David were absolutely lovely, stowed our bikes safely, recommended places to eat and provided a very comprehensive map of nearby parking places. Breakfast was fab with some unusual ( and delicious) items on the menu. Our double room was comfortable enough, though it was quite small and... More

We stayed here for one night while cycling route 700. Upon answering the door to us Geraldine made us feel welcome, and promptly ensured our bikes were safely stowed away without making us feel rushed to get the panniers off. We were made to feel comfortable at all times throughout our one night stay.The room (twin room top floor) was... More

What a fabulous little b&b Somerset House is. A very warm welcome from Geraldine for both myself and my dog Monty. The room was a twin bedded room at the top of the house. It was clean, well decorated, tv on the wall and nice and warm. Window does open if required. Nothing was too much trouble and when discussing... More

This was one of the best stays I've ever had anywhere ever. The personal service was second to none, nothing was too much trouble. We were given a lift to the skydive centre for the skydive we had booked as we were unable to get a taxi. After a surprise proposal and a little too much celebrating we slept in... More

Just returned from a weekend break in Grange with friends. We stayed here at Somerset House after spotting it on TripAdvisor. So glad we decided to pick this homely guesthouse. A lovely welcome from our host Geraldine on arrival. She spent time advising us on places to visit and where to eat out locally, which was very helpful. Whilst out... More

Very comfortable room, in a well established family run B&B. Excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend and revisit The house is about a third of a mile from town centre, and very easy to find, Try the Royal Oak at Lindale , about 2 miles for an excellent pub meal

Good location, walking distance to shops and station. Room and bed were clean and comfortable with good shower facilities. Room was warm and generally quiet. Good selection for breakfast and generous servings. Found the hosts very friendly and accommodating. I stayed for a week and would recommend as a good choice when visiting the Lake District and surrounds.

Grange-over-Sands (or Grange-over-Grass to be more accurate) certainly has its charms and this B&B is centrally located in the town. Our room was small and the adjacent shower room a tight fit, but it was well appointed and clean. Pity about the notices around the walls, including one threatening an £80 fine should you smoke in the room. Breakfast was... More

Thank you for the review and we are delighted that you enjoyed Grange. Regarding the notice about smoking, we are a non smoking establishment and whilst many smokers respect this , we have had the odd few who flout it. If you had arrived and I had put you into a room which obviously smelt of smoke, you may not... More

This B&B has the advantage of being located in the delightfultown of Grange Over Sands. Anyone familiair with the area will know how busy the towns in the middle of the Lakes are - Ambleside and so on. I am sure Grange is overlooked in favour of those places. It shouldn't be. This lovely bustling little place has many pleasant... More
