Extremely friendly and helpful stuff, great breakfast and treats throughout the day. Very clean and quiet room with beautiful view. We stayed in room 5 which supposed to be the best room.

I usually write in depth reviews, but for The Grange Country House I will keep it short:

Pros:

- immaculate, clean, comfortable with tasteful period decor.
- very friendly staff, the best, always smiling and engaging in conversation.
- a breakfast to die for: hot, fresh, tasty, perfectly cooked with home made apricot jam for the toast. The pots of coffee were fantastic.
- quiet with double glazing in the room.
- perfect base for Keswick and north lakes.
- tremendous attention to detail, right down to the chocolates in the room, the folds on the bed, the positioning of soaps, toiletries etc. and a bathroom so clean you could have eaten your dinner off the floor.
- free WiFi with good signal strength which was great for relaxing in the evening with the iPad.
- a wealth of tourist information on the ground floor for those that need it.

Cons:

There are no cons, but if I absolutely had to find something, the bed was a little too soft for my taste but that's purely me.

Summary:

It's perfect. Do not hesitate to book up. This is my second visit and I left saying to my girlfriend "that was just damn perfect, i'll miss that breakfast". I will not consider going anywhere else in Keswick, The Grange have got the perfect formula - please don't change it!

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful house we received superb attention and care. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was immaculate with a good variety of hot drinks and fresh milk and homemade cake available daily. The views were amazing. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. We will definitely return to sample some more of this brilliant hospitality.

Returned to the Grange and again enjoyed the best hospitality, beautiful room, outstanding breakfast. Extra touches like jugs of fresh milk & homemade cakes left in the hall are appreciated, as are the ample supply of drinks/biscuits, the bottled water & chocolates in the room. Nothing is too much trouble and the Hosts make you feel so welcome, genuine and helpful, they are very professional & make it all look so easy, but it must be hard work keeping standards so high. We cant wait to go back.

This was our second visit to The Grange which in itself is the ultimate compliment from us as we very rarely stay at the same place twice! Having good weather did help but it would have been nice to sit in the lounge when it is pouring with rain outside. The room was perfect and the breakfasts were so good we did not have to bother with lunches. The owners and staff make you very welcome and always have time for you, they are interested in what you do. The location is perfect, the steady uphill walk from Keswick helps burn a few calories off. It is a great base for walkers and you do not have to use your car. I would recommend The Grange to anyone.

With lovely hosts and staff. A view to die for (through a few clouds). The rooms are luxurious and come complete with Handmade chocolates. I look forward to my return!

The Grange Country House, what a find! After becoming stranded when our holiday cottage booking, despite being made through a 'reputable agency', turned out to be the pits and unstayable at, Keswick Tourist Info came up with The Grange. We were met warmly at the door by proprietor Mark and shown a selection of rooms that were available for our 2 to possibly 4 night stay. As we toured the building around 10.30am busy housekeeping staff smiled and said friendly 'hellos'. We were given space in the lounge to consider our options and the special standard room rate, offered for two nights through the TI enquiry, was extended to the four night stay in superior room 10 without prompting. Help was also offered with the bags.

The room proved great. Recently refurbished bathroom, tasteful decor, crisp linen, very clean and nicely presented with hospitality tray selection of teas, coffee, chocolate and biscuit selection. Complimentary shampoos, shower caps, etc., in the bathroom. This was a naturally well lit room and has panoramic views over Keswick from Grisedale Pike to Skiddaw and is well positioned for admiring spectacular sunsets across Bassenthwaite Lake. The room was airy and warm, the bed really comfortable, the towels soft, water hot and the option of bath or shower.

Hosts and staff were friendly, helpful, attentive but not over powering, always on hand. We could not fault the service. The Grange is a fine looking building, well maintained, with spectacular views and setting plus ample parking. It has an enviable location on a quiet road and it took us just 15 minutes or so walk to the centre of the Keswick, so convenient. Main bus route close by.

Breakfast: good and wide selection, we went through the menu without fault or disappointment, well presented and served. Porridge, fresh fruit and the black pudding were superb items.

We could go on at length but it is sufficient to say Sally and Mark with their staff at The Grange, consistently delivered beyond these customers' expectation. The Grange Country house, Keswick has been a gem of a find. Eureka, now we have found it we hope soon to return. Angela and PaulC
