Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice, clean, friendly, welcoming B&B , accommodating dietary requirements, perfect place to stay just outside of the lake district if you don't want to spend the horrific Windermere prices but want to stay in a quality accommodation.

My mate & I loved the B&B here - friendly owner who’s an ex-cyclist herself and adept at looking after Bay Cycle Way customers, comfortable rooms and a particularly good range of breakfast options. And she gave us a comprehensive rundown on all the restaurant and pub options for an evening meal too. It’s easy to see why this is an enduring favourite. Look out for the extraordinarily colourful display in the front garden too. Highly recommended.

Somerset House really thinks about its guests. Small things in the facilities provided. Great attention to detail, and so clean. Comfortable rooms, very friendly smiling owners in Geraldine and geordie David - and a special hello and thanks to Gill and Geraldine for arranging great breakfasts and sharing so much stuff about the area. We had a great room, help where we needed it and a smashing stay! Thoroughly recommend the place, starting from the warm welcome and their prize winning front garden - a blaze of flowers and colour through the summer.

We stayed a couple of nights with our 2 children at the end of a fantastic week in the Lakes. Very good location near everything and a great base to explore. We loved nearby Cartmel. The family room was very comfortable for the 4 of us. Geraldine is the perfect host and very friendly. Also cooked us a lovely breakfast both mornings. I would recommend this B & B to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Friendly and Welcoming staff, clean and well decorated rooms. It was lovely to have a choice of 4 Breakfast style’s, you could eat in the dining room or in your room, we chose to eat in our room which was wonderful. Parking in the street was good. Convenient location to the southern lakes.

We had a very happy short break at Somerset House, feeling welcome and "at home". Our room was warm and comfortable and the breakfast was plentiful and cheerfully served. Geraldine had made sure that my somewhat disabled husband was considered in her allocation of our accommodation. Thank you, Geraldine , for looking after us so well.

Stayed for a couple of nights, the hotel is very well located and close to shops and several cafes. Grange-over-sands itself is a very small and quiet place, but great for getting to the Lakes and Cartmel.

We stayed in Room 8 which was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was enjoyable particularly the continental one. Geraldine and Dave made us most welcome and were super helpful with a lift to the station at the end. I cannot inmagine anyone staying at Somerset House not getting that 'home from home feeling' and booking in again when visiting Grange.

Set right in the heart of the gorgeous village, walking distance to all pubs. Geraldine is so friendly and welcoming, I didn’t meet David but I would imagine he is as welcoming. The room was spacious, clean with everything you need, the beds are comfy too, the breakfast was exceptional, we got more than expected all included in the price, I would highly recommend staying here it is beautiful and homely x
