Went with 2 friends for an overnight break and had booked in at Somerset House. Rooms were lovely and clean - beds comfortable. Grange was quieter than we imagined it would be in the evening but we still enjoyed it. Lots of places to visit in the surrounding area and we had a delicious breakfast on the Sunday morning. Wouldn't... More

Stayed at Somerset House for two nights whilst house-hunting in the area and nothing was too much trouble for the owners here, I won't go into details, but they didn't just go the extra mile but way beyond that! Everywhere in the house is spotlessly clean, beds are comfy and a terrific choice for breakfast is offered. Arrived as guests... More

This was a spur of the moment overnight stay. It was comfortable and clean, the owners very pleasant and the breakfast was excellent. It's in a lovely part of the lakes being quiet and on the outskirts within easy reach of the South lakes and a really good zoo. We would stay again if in the area.

I have visited on many occasions and stayed for between one and three nights. Geraldine and David always welcoming and friendly. Never had any issues. Lovely cooked breakfast and rooms clean and tidy. Free wifi. This is my first choice when visiting Grange Over Sands. I wouldn't really think of looking anywhere else as it represents excellent value for money.

Our first stay in the Lakes and planning to come more! Fantastic area which is pretty central to most amenities and for sightseeing. Parking was straight forward - free on roadside from 5pm - 10.00 and plenty of car parks outside these hours £6 for the day. Everything seemed well organised in the B&B and there was a relaxing atmosphere... More

I returned to Somerset House on 21 June 2014 for a second visit: just an overnight stop. So pleasant to be greeted by Geraldine as an old friend. Kind advice was given on the best walking route to a party I was attending in Cartmel. The comfortable, neat room gave me a good night's sleep when I staggered back again.... More
