Nestled on its wooded fellside, the Coach House offers tranquility, privacy and a sense of being at one with Nature, yet it is only a couple of minutes by car from Grange with all the shopping and services a traveller could desire (or five minutes if you prefer to walk). This white-painted building of ancient character has been sympathetically and painstakingly refurbished by the present owners to create the perfect holiday getaway, incorporating every mod con. The broad, high patio opens onto the magnificent panorama of Morecambe Bay, and suggests a glass of wine, a recliner and a good book - although you may find yourself spending an inordinate amount of time just enjoying the changing moods of sky and seascape. The great upper room, which incorporates the kitchen, is comfortably and tastefully furnished, and attractively styled in the vernacular (check out the lintel above the wood-burning stove). Bathrooms excellent. Bedrooms also, all linked by a gleaming corridor. Everything spotless. The impression is of a small and perfect hotel - and the joy is that it's all yours! Dawn and Ray, our hosts, live in a fine, detached house just across the sloping lane; they are an interesting couple who have travelled widely, and are sociable and supportive. One day, the rain hammered down from dawn to dusk, confining us to the house, but we enjoyed every minute because it was a 'really nice place to be'. So, thank you again, Dawn and Ray for a very fine week.
Have stayed in some great places but this is definitely in the top three. Fantastic welcome and wonderful accommodation - couldn't have asked for more. Beautiful spacious rooms, gorgeous gardens and really spacious balcony with bbq. Could not believe how much thought had gone in to making this such a perfect place to relax and chill in. Nothing has been left to chance and there are more books, games, maps etc to keep anyone happy for weeks.
Location is idyllic and the birdsong is unbelievable. Saw the customary rabbits etc but the highlight was finding myself eye to eye with deer whilst walking in the woods opposite - truly magical.
Will definitely be back.
Stayed here in April for a few nights with my husband and Mum.
Spacious well equipped property. Unusual layout as the living accommodation is upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs but that is just perfect to give you stunning views over Morecombe Bay.
Very friendly owners live just across the road. Everything worked and the house was spotless. Thoughtful touches such as a cupboard full of condiments in case you forget an 'essential'.
We only had a short stay but it is well suited to a longer break with washing machine, freezer etc. Two good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and a lovely conservatory, gorgeous garden and sun terrace. A wood burner and gas BBQ mean you can enjoy this place no matter what season it is.
It's up a steep narrow lane just out of Grange Over Sands which has plenty to offer.
Locallly are loads of attractions. We enjoyed visits to Levens Hall, Graythwaite garden, Holker Hall, Sizergh Castle and the Lakeland Motor Museum (all between 15 and 30 mins away)
Thoroughly recommend this property situated in a beautiful part of the world.
We stayed here in mid March for 3 nights as a couple. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming and there were so many little touches to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Really comfy beds (important for me as I am heavily pregnant) and lots of areas around the house to relax and unwind. We had unexpectedly nice weather which was a bonus so were able to enjoy sitting out on the terrace with a coffee overlooking the beautiful Morecambe Bay! The area itself is wonderful and it is a great base for exploring the South Lakes. Lots of lovely walks and an amazing butchers just a few minutes walk away in the village. All in all a lovely stay and we will definitely be back in a few months with our new baby!
We took the Coach House over the New Year's weekend to 'get away from it all'.
The house was in a perfect location for us as walkers - step right out the front door and you're off! The house itself is everything a rental property should be - clean, well furnished with everything (and I mean everything) you need for a lovely comfortable stay. The owners live just across the lane and couldn't have been more helpful. Grange-over-Sands is a nice little town and well worth a look around especially a stroll along the promenade. Cartmel is minutes away by car and worth a visit - we walked there via the Hospice on top of the hill - well worth the effort for the views alone. All in all a very Happy New Year for us. Highly recommend The Coach House.
