  • "Facilities Generally Good Had a Problem with the boiler and a leak from the radiator When reported the problem was quickly fixed so was impressed with that."

    I Don't understand why you cant have 2 well behaved Dogs. Also i don't know why the check in and out are though times it really reduces Holiday enjoyment is the Sykes Policy or the owners Check in after 5pm and check out before 9am does not help make a good experience.. Other companies that we have stayed with are latest check in has been 4pm and check out 10 am. y

  • "There was no welcome pack on arrival which was a surprise particularly as we arrived in the midst of the festive season There written notes on scraps of paper dotted around stuck to the walls with black electrical tape which was reminiscent of our holiday cottage stays back in the 1980's."

    This made us feel like we had gone back to school and certainly detracted from the look and feel of the place. However apart from that the cottage was very nice, clean, warm, well equipped and cosy. The views of the bay were fabulous. It's situated on a nice residential street and it was very quiet. The path around the property and patio were covered in green moss and were incredibly slippery underfoot - no warnings anywhere about that. We lost connection to the WIFI from Sunday morning onwards which was a minor inconvenience on this occasion. The garden is lovely and was visited by many small birds constantly throughout the day. We would definitely visit again.

  • "Clean and comfortable with amazing views A day after we arrived, we noticed a wasps nest forming in one of the vents outside the house."

    We reported this to Sykes who contacted Orian who deal with the maintenance on the bungalow. Because of the wasps, we couldn't open all the windows so they supplied us with fans until pest control could come out. This was all out of hours at weekend and they replied to our messages almost immediately. The service from Orian and the pest control company was first class. We had an enjoyable holiday despite the wasps nest but it would have been a very different outcome if the nest had been left any longer. Knowing that it would be dealt with was very reassuring. The nests could not have been predicted but everything was done to resolve the problem in a friendly and efficient manner. We are looking forward to returning to this property again.

  • "The accommodation was tired and unclean in places."

    When we arrived one of the curtain rails in the lounge was down and the curtain on the floor behind the sofa. One of the toilets was out of use which was a real problem as we were staying with two elderly parents who have more frequent toilet visits. I had to ring the office who sent someone the following day but it could not be fixed we had to wait for Dynarod who didn’t arrive until the afternoon before our holiday finished. The accommodation has beautiful views of the bay but the windows were really dirty or the units had blown which impacted from inside the house. I always stay with Sykes this property was definitely not up to their usual standard.

  • "Sadly as a pet friendly property this failed to be totally grandfather and grandson friendly."

    Both of us favour dark clothing and both ended up covered in white dog/cat hairs which had not been picked up by the cleaners or the (seemingly ineffective) vacuum which my daughter in law had used throughout. Fortunately neither of us suffer from allergies. The property was well situated and in a very quiet location. The accommodation was spacious and the beds comfortable. The settees in the lounge however seem to be past their use by date and rising from them was not easy! The kitchen was spacious and equipped with quality pots/pans/crockery. Though the fridge freezer was incredibly loud. The towels in the bathrooms were absorbent and of a good quality, and there was instant hot water at all times. The garden was pleasant to sit in when the sun shone with a panoramic view of the bay. We left the property in the state and at the time specified by Sykes. The tone of the leaving instructions was somewhat threatening and draconian, perhaps someone could read and redraft these perfectly reasonable requests in a friendlier fashion?

    I think it's important to highlight this. Also, other reviews mentioned the narrowness of the drive, my Ford Kuga SUV fitted no problem, you just need to be careful. I reversed in every time.

  • "I have sent numerous messages to tell you what went wrong but with no response yet."

    The house was filthy when we arrived at 5.30pm despite there being a note saying the cleaners had been. Dirty laundry, no beds made. With no reasonable help from sykes we left the property checked into a local hotel for the rest of the week, we did not return despite the cleaners being sent. We had to pay 1400 for 2 rooms on top of the 997 we paid for this house. I also paid 50 insurance so hope to get some compensation from sykes

  • "We liked the spaciousness of the cottage and really appreciated the two bathrooms, especially when we were trying to get out in the morning."

    The lounge and dining room were very comforatble. The view from the lounge was lovely and we enjoyed sitting on the patio and looking at the view from there as well. The cottage was very clean and smelt clean when we arrived. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were and how cosy the duvets were. The cottage was well placed for a stroll on the prom, although you have to be ready for the steep bit of road on the way back up!

  • "The house was beautifully presented, very clean and all the details thought of."

    The layout of rooms and bathrooms was ideal. A lovely property, certainly a good way to get fit climbing up the very steep hill to get to it! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Just a minor point, it might be useful to have somewhere to put dirty boots under the car port (save getting the kitchen floor dirty). In normal weather they can just be left outside but if it's windy they would get wet! We're certainly hoping to book again.

  • "Lovely bungalow, views super."

    Only one thing spoilt it for me as I wrote in visitor book, l am hypersensitive to smells tastes etc, on arrival the smell of cleaning products or washing powder e.g.. febreze which a can of it was in bathroom ,and washing machine smelt, the same , was very pungent for more than 24 hours ,did not sleep well ,l was outside 2am getting fresh air . Please can renters be aware of people's problems and just use none perfume products. At one point thought May have to go home. Such a shame as the place was nice. Did dissipate only after 24 hours. So because of this I will. be reluctant to book any properties again.

    Peaceful location, good views out across Morecambe Bay. Good supply of towels also dishwasher tabs and useful extras like kitchen paper and clingfilm / foil. Ample quantities of tableware. The driveway is long enough to accommodate more than 1 car, but anyone with a SUV type might find it rather narrow.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday."

    Grange-Over-Sands is an ideal location from which to explore the Lakes and a very pretty town in its own right with lovely ornamental gardens, great shops and spectacular views over the bay and good to stroll around. There is a very handy recreation ground 5 minutes walk away which is a great place to exercise the dog. The cottage was larger than expected, immaculate and extremely well equipped. We wanted for nothing, and it was presented beautifully, ideal for my dog with a well enclosed garden and plenty of space for her to run around. The house did not smell 'doggy' at all when we arrived. There was even a dog bed and bowl provided. I really cannot think of anything which was not as I would have wished. My only reason for not giving a top rating for the accuracy of the description is because it was described as a 10 minute walk to the shops. I think this is a little optimistic. I am a good walker and the main part of the town which you would need for bread and milk etc is at least a 15 minute walk or possibly 20 if you are not a brisk walker. Also the walk back is quite a steep climb - good if you want to get fit on your holiday but realistically a trip in the car if you are stocking up with provisions. We found several excellent pubs to eat, all in Flookburgh. Overall my rating is excellent, many thanks for all the effort in providing such a good service.

  • "Excellent property, we used a car for access but it is a steep long uphill walk to the house."

    We noticed this before we booked and it had been mentioned in a previous review. My mother is 88 years old and she managed to walk into Grange and back but the hill was very difficult for her to climb. This was not at all a problem for our stay but I think the location should be highlighted on your site. Car port and driveway excellent, all in all an excellent spacious property with everything we needed. No Wi-Fi was a bonus.

  • "This cottage was wonderful, roomy, homely and very well equipped."

    A dog bed & bowl for the dog as well as extra doggy bags. Cleaning & washing supplies all provided. Board games for the very wet day we had. The patio furniture & BBQ were great for the sunny days with wonderful views. Grange over sands has wonderful amenities, butchers, bakers, coop and various takeaways. Only one criticism is that there not internet which would have been an added bonus. We will definitely be back to this stunning area, as so much more to explore.

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.
