  • "This really is a 5 star property, we just where unlucky!"

    The positives: Really nice 3 bed cottage, with everything that you need to have a really comfortable stay! Such as well equipped kitchen, decorated to a modern taste, great TV inc. Sky, great WiFi and event a 7kw electric car charger. The negatives: parking is a bit of a tight squeeze especially in a large car. Sadly for us, we had a electrical issue which meant we had no central heating or hot water during our first nights stay. We contacted the owner, who responded immediately and had somebody come around the next day. This is the only reason for the 4 star, otherwise it would have been a 5 star!

  • "The property was well maintained and well equipped."

    It was tastefully done and the kitchen was absolutely fabulous. we cooked a Christmas meal for five without any problems. The only problem was that we had difficulty finding the cottage in the dark (as 4pmm in winter was very dark) and went all the way to the neighbours cottage at the top of the hill. He very kindly came out and guided as to the cottage.

  • "Absolutely stunning cottage in a stunning location!"

    We had a great week with 2 8year old boys and a frenchie. Everything was to perfection and I will 100% be returning! Only critique would be that the garden gate does not close and forms part of the shared driveway, so I was more conscious about the boys, but minor :) Thank you for having us! X

    Thank you so much for your great feedback! We look forward to welcoming you and your family back soon! X Property Owner

  • "No on street parking lay by 200 yards away on a busy road."

    No path to walk from lay by and no lighting on this stretch of road. We had 2 small children we either dropped off at cottage or walk to cottage. This listing needs to change immediately as it states on street parking, which is false

    Thanks for taking time to leave your feedback, We are confused as there is private parking at the cottage for 1 car right next to the cottage, to the left of the front door. Once again, thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. Property Owner

    We were very lucky with the weather and made the most of sitting in the garden . Only a short walk through the woods into Grange. It is a good base to visit places such as Arnside , Silverdale & Windermere. We will be back

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback! So glad you love the cottage as much as we do! We look forward to welcoming you back to pear tree cottage. Property Owner

  • "A comfortable and well-equipped cottage with a very pleasant garden."

    The owners were very helpful over an issue we had and we appreciated their being so accessible. We enjoyed walks from the cottage and along the promenade and we found the shops and a bistro in town very good indeed.

    Thank you Richard for taking the time for your review, we really appreciate it! The walks are our favourite part of the location of the cottage, sea one side mountains the other! Property Owner

  • "Pear Tree Cottage is a very welcoming, comfortable and beautifully decorated holiday home."

    The pretty garden is well maintained and secluded. The electric charger was the main reason we initially booked as chargers in the Lake District are few and far between, and having one at the cottage relieves any stress of finding one. Grange-Over-Sands proved to be a really good base to explore, also offering walks from the doorstep. Fabulous cafe, bakery and butchers locally which we would definitely recommend. Very friendly town and would certainly return to explore further.

    Hi Michael and thank you for leaving your review and good feedback! Yes we also found Grange a very friendly place with lots of amenities but not as manic as other parts of the lake district! Property Owner

  • "Pear Tree Cottage is a charming Lakeland house."

    It has been cleverly renovated with a very comfortable open kitchen and dining area which is plenty big enough for six. There is smaller cozy sitting/TV room with a log fire. The bedrooms were also well laid out and a decent size. There are lovely walks from the house and it is well situated for exploring the South Lakes area.

    Hi Caroline, thank you for taking time to leave this lovely review. We are so happy that you and your family had a lovely time ! Property Owner

  • "We could quite happily have moved in to Pear Tree Cottage, it’s so beautiful!"

    The owners obviously have a keen eye for interiors and have filled the place with stylish, yet comfortable furniture and really lovely fixtures and fittings, plus the odd quirky little feature. It has everything you could possibly need in a home away from home. Don’t be put off by lack of sink in the kitchen. It has a gorgeous little side kitchen/utility just off the main one that houses the sink, dishwasher and washing machine. The big bonus for us, having an electric vehicle, was the charging point. It meant we didn’t have to worry about finding places to charge whilst out and about. It really is one of the nicest cottages we’ve had the pleasure of staying in.

    Wow thank you so much for taking the time to leave your great review! We are so happy you liked everything and also appreciated the love we have poured into Pear Tree cottage. Reviews like yours makes it all worthwhile. Sincere thanks once again. Property Owner

    Lovely peaceful setting, 5 minutes walk from Grange and 45 minutes walk over the moor from Cartmel. Bit form over function though with boatloads of breakable clutter and weird choices like no kitchen tap.

    Pear tree cottage is stunning inside and out, with every little detail beautifully presented, from the pretty garden and lovely seating at the top, with fantastic views, to the inside decor. Everything you could possibly need is there, we didn’t want to leave!!

    Thank you so much for your great feedback! We are so happy that you love Pear Tree as much as we do! We tried to make it quirky, memorable and different from the norm whilst working with the great character of the cottage which dates back around 300 years!

  • "We had a lovely stay at Pear Tree Cottage, very well equipped and comfortable."

    However I do feel the living room needs more comfortable seating, and I do wonder how 6 people could fit on the one settee. The window seat is not really an option for relaxing in the evening. I do find it a little insulting to be asked to strip the beds prior to departure. This is something I used to have to do years ago when staying at youth hostels. When paying just under a thousand pounds for a 5-night stay, I would have expected this to be part of the housekeeper's role. I have stayed in many cottages over the years and have never been asked to strip beds, and although a 5 minute job, just takes the edge off the stay. I do enough of that at home!

    Thank you for your feedback we are happy you had good stay. We don't take bookings for 6 adults based on the size of the lounge, only 4 adults max. We really thought about the best way to get more seating in the lounge but due to the solid stone walls and log burner we did the best we could. The kitchen and dining space is much larger and we use that space a lot when we stay for playing games etc. The stripping of beds is a new COVID rule that our cleaners insist on I'm afraid.

  • "Sink is in a completely different room to the kitchen."

    This makes the house not suitable for people with any mobility issues. Vert inconvenient. The bathroom sink is very cracked.

    Thank you for your feedback, we hope you found the rest of the cottage and quality to your satisfaction and had a lovely break. Pear Tree Cottage dates back to the 1700s and the layout is certainly quirky! The sink is in the utility room adjacent to the kitchen with kettle, tea and coffee, toaster and microwave. We would agree that the cottage is not suitable for people with mobility issues as the bedrooms and bathroom are on the first floor. Regarding the bathroom sink, it is historic to the cottage and dates back to the 1920's, the glazing is 'crazed' rather than cracked and doesn't leak. Property Owner

About the location

GRANGE-OVER-SANDS

Cartmel 2 miles; Lake Windermere 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Formerly a small fishing village, the introduction of the Furness Railway transformed Grange-over-Sands into a fashionable Edwardian resort. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L’Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Other attractions in the area include Levens Hall, with its Elizabethan Hall and world famous topiary gardens, Holker Hall, Furness Abbey, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. There is also the 25 mile Cistercian Way which starts at Grange over Sands. Set amidst the southern lakes, the attractive town of Grange-over-Sands makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
