“It really is "A really nice place to stay"”
Reviewed October 31, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

A beautifully presented home from home with everything you could possibly need and more . The "upside-down" layout allows you to enjoy the fantastic views over the bay and I'm sure in less breezy weather the huge patio would be a treat (we only lasted out there a few minutes before the lure of the wood burner dragged us back inside) . The road up to the cottage is a little on the steep side , but you get used to it very quickly and the walk up to the Hospice is well worth it for the fabulous views .
Thank you for a great week , all the best to you both

We are pleased that you really enjoyed your stay at The Coach House. I am writing on the 2nd November wearing Jeans and a short sleeve shirt and can say that it is warm, clear, sunny and glorious at The Coach House today. Late season holidays are low cost and underrated. We should all take advantage of what Britain has to offer at this time of year and if the weather is poor, there is always a log fire at The Coach House..

“Magical, Luminous Lake District Accommodation”
Reviewed October 9, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

In all our decades of travel, the Coach House was absolutely the best of any kind of accommodation we have ever stayed in. Gorgeously appointed and furnished, designed with artistry and attention to the smallest detail of what you might need in a home away from home. The homemade shortbread, tea, coffee, condiments, FRESH MILK, and drugstore items stored away- just in case! Dawn and Ray are incredible hosts and have included a wealth of brochures and books to help one not only navigate a stay in the district but to understand the area's rich history. And for us, being city folks, Ray and Dawn came over the night of the full moon and lit a fire (the views of the moon reflected in Morecambe Bay- extraordinary).I loved sitting in the conservatory each morning planning our day's agenda whilst having tea. As recommended we ambled across the garden and had two wonderful meals at the Hampsfell House Hotel. Our only regret is that the property has been sold and we will not be able to return before it changes hands. But we will always treasure our time at the Coach House and Grange Over Sands.

“Our time in Grange over Sands”
Reviewed September 19, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Coach House was a delight only to be matched by its owners, Ray and Dawn. Everything was perfect with top notch furnishings, care and attention to every detail, and such a home-from-home feeling. This is the nicest rental we have encountered in many years visiting all over the U.K. from our home on Colorado, USA. We regret that there will be no more opportunities to return there.

“Excellent house with a rustic charm and amazing views”
Reviewed September 7, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A very last minute decision to have a break did mean that we had limited choices but really glad that we chose The Coach House. This beautiful house was well maintained and offered ample space for the five of us with stunning views of the sandy bay from the massive terrace. The whole property was immaculately clean. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and it is a shame that we didn't get a chance to use the BBQ or light up a fire in the quaint fireplace. The location is ideal to explore the Lake District if you want to be far from the madding crowds of the tourist hotspots. The train station and the town centre is just a few minutes of walking although on your way back be prepared for a bit of a steep climb. The owners Raymond and Gill live just across and were very welcoming and helpful. The hotel next door is very good to nip in for some lovely breakfast or late tea. We also loved the food from the local Chinese Takeaway. Unfortunately this lovely gem of a self-catering is on the market and most likely will not be available for much longer - otherwise we would have loved to visit again.
