“Good clean B&B, amazing breakfast.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2011

This place restored my faith in B&B's, it's comfortable, clean and the breakfast is amazing. I went in January on a working trip, it's just a shame Grange on Sands goes on strike in January and you can't get fed anywhere... I survived on pecking duck Chinese take away and chip shop chips, I went home several pounds heavier, I probably should have used the mini bistro that Geraldine runs, I'm sure it would have been loads better.

We were in Grange for just two nights to attend a dear friends funeral. I booked this B&B up at the last minute guided by the reviews here and have to say that I was pleased that I did. Very friendly, very clean, breakfast was great and at £75 per night for the three of us, it was good value. Just want to add that if you're intending to eat out and you don't want to push the boat out, I can heartily recommend the Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas from the Fish & Chip shop just 2 minutes walk up the road, the best I've had for a long time. Don't forget to stock up on pies as well from the butchers a bit further along!!

what really nice place to stay, as a family of five (with small children) and a huge black newfoundland dog, we were welcomed with open arms. it was excellent value for money and the owners could not have helped us any more. We tried their recommended walk up hampsell fell and had a beautiful day with family. would recommend this place to anyone who likes to feel welcomed in a bed and breakfast and not ignored as a lot of places do. Breakfast was above average with a wide range of options. Very child friendly aswell. room was very clean and tidy.

Really lovely B&B. The owners are very nice and welcoming. The room was a family room and a very good size with an ensuite shower room, tea & coffee making facillities&flat screen freeview tv.
The Breakfast was lovely as was the dining room.
The location is ideal as a starting base within the lake district and is very peaceful with a beautiful duckpond.
