    On day 2 of a 3 night break, we just had to book to come back in the Summer. The apartment offers quality fixtures/fittings and furnishings throughout and was lovely and warm. A lovely walk from the doorstep to Grange over Sands, with the option to travel back by train to Kents Bank station opposite. Excellent food at the Cavendish Arms in nearby Cartmel. No hesitation in recommending to others.

  • "We loved our stay at this beautiful, well-equipped and spotlessly clean holiday apartment."

    It is the perfect place to relax, unwind and escape the stresses of life. The gardens are very pretty and the lovely little 'Kents Bank' railway station across the road adds the perfect touch. The bus to Kendal also stops outside the apartments. Grange-over-Sands itself is an elegant town overlooking the magnificent sands of Morecambe Bay. With the fascinating village of Cartmel just two miles away and Lake Windermere just 15 miles away, visitors cannot fail to be impressed with this perfect holiday location. We would not hesitate to recommend this delightful holiday apartment. The owners welcome their guests with a bottle of Prosecco and make sure they have every comfort during their stay.

    We then found that we had both been bitten during the night. We tried to get somebody to come and see the beds and our bites which were now quite inflamed but no one would come. We cut our stay short as we had no where to sleep. When we got home we contacted Sykes it was a Sunday and they promised to ring us back but never did. When I eventually got in touch with with Sykes they were not interested in speaking to us and only wanted the owners version of events. We have lots of photos of our bites and we will be contacting environmental health as this property should not be let until it has been thoroughly fumigated

    Thank you for you comments which we believe are unjustified and inaccurate. You have told us that while out on Saturday, in the middle of the afternoon, you noticed bites. You have stated that you did not return to our property until the late evening. The photographs you have provided appear to be consistent with mosquito bites. We have been advised by experts in the area that the climatic conditions in Grange have been favourable for mosquitoes in recent weeks. We contacted you on Sunday morning but you were unable to take our call. We provided you with a detailed email on Sunday evening and offered to follow-up with further information. On Monday, as a precaution, we spent the entire day at the property undertaking thorough checks, all of which confirmed that our high standards are being maintained at the property. These checks included a visit from a Pest Control expert whose subsequent written report has concluded that there is no evidence of any issues. This information, together with much more, has been provided to Sykes Cottages. We will be delighted to provide any public body with access to the property to check our high standards which are reflected by other guest reviews published here. All reviews in September, including the guests who departed the day you arrived, awarded 8 Kents Bank House with 5 Star ratings. Property Owner

    ... perfect!! The apartment is so comfortable, spotlessly clean, and the location is just right for exploring around and about. Lots of lovely walks, right on the doorstep, small train station and bus stop just across the road. Far enough out of Grange-Over-Sand for the location to be off the tourist grid and nice and quiet, but near enough to walk into the town. Already looking to book Kents Bank again for next year.

    The apartment is very quiet, well-quipped and nicely furnished with quality fixtures and fittings. It's spotless and well looked after, in fact all was beyond expectation. The railway nearby is a bonus, a short train ride along to Arnside and a walk over Arnside Knott was the highlight of the weekend. Hampsfell is a spectacular walk from the door with many cafes and restaurants on the return route through Grange. All of Grange is within easy walking distance of Kents Bank, taking in the views of Morecambe Bay along the way. The excellent Pheasant Inn at Allithwaite, so good we went twice, is walking distance too, we didn't need to use the cars during our stay. Would love to do it all again.

    Beautiful home, only down side for us was our dogs needed a garden the one that was advertised we were not able to let our dogs straight into and it became a chore to have to walk our dogs each time they needed to exercise so probably wouldn't return for that reason.

    Many thanks for your feedback Steven, we are are delighted you liked our apartment and its beautiful location. Sorry that the patio and communal gardens are unsuitable for your dogs we take care to include clear photographs of the private patio garden and the large communal gardens so that guests can see the facilities in advance. The listing highlights that we welcome dogs but they are not permitted on the shared lawns - the good news is there is an excellent walk just across the road that is perfect for pets. The property is situated in a Conservation Area which does not permit fencing to be installed. Thankfully guests appreciate both the view and the tranquillity of communal gardens and, as dog owners ourselves, we are confident this is a great holiday home for a well behaved dog. Property Owner

    Very disappointing on leaving day to have man knocking impatiently on the door at precisely 9am requesting us to move out! Even on saying we need 5/10 minutes he pointed to his watch and said, rather rudely '9am you should be out' We said dishwasher had not yet finished but that was met with 'I'll do it' we then said we need to put keys away but again it was 'I'll do it' His attitude was appalling so it was a tad disappointing to a very good week!

    Thank you for your feedback. We do have to be sure there is plenty of time for a thorough clean between stays which of course can also depend on how the property is left by the previous guests. The gentleman who arrived from the property management company is well known to the owner and is always polite and courteous so we have never experienced any issues such as yours before. He has explained he was just willing to finish things off so that you did not have to but we are sorry if you were offended at all and would certainly not wish to cause any upset.

    Firstly, the accommodation was not a disappointment, it was well equipped and I could not fault the cleanliness of the property. The location is also a bonus as it looks over Morecombe Bay and is right next to Kents Bank train station that allows you to travel to the centre of Grange Over Sands or Cark. This came in very handy when me and my father-in-law went to watch football at the Keg and Kitchen and struggled to find a taxi after the match. Another bonus is that you are only a short car journey to Lakeside and then the rest of Windermere. If you are booking 8 Kents Bank House, I would highly recommend a trip to The Pheasant Inn Allithwaite Rd, Allithwaite, Grange-over-Sands LA11 7RQ, the food and service was excellent and on our 4 day stay over we went twice. Overall, we had a fantastic stay at 8 Kents Bank House and I would highly recommend this accommodation to any of my friends and family and I am sure we will return in the near future.

  • "Amazing apartment."

    Really well equipped. All the attractions were pretty close. Beautiful walks nearby. Amenities like Tesco and co op in 1.2 miles. Really helpful neighbours. Beautiful large grassy marshy area for dog to run about and swim just across the road. We didn’t used the train but it links with all the main stations if someone likes to visit by train .

  • "The only small concern was confusion over the collection of the rubbish."

    The bin was already full when we arrived from the previous occupants, and we missed the collection over confusion of date. This did not spoil a very pleasant stay in a well equipped apartment, but would need looking at to avoid unessesary visitors !!
