Hampsfell House Hotel

This is a lovely family-run hotel, nestling up the hillside a short walk away from Grange's shops and train station. Very homely and comfortable, we stayed in a good sized room which had a lovely view out onto the gardens.

The full English breakfast was great. Compared to other B&B breakfasts this didn't feel too heavy and it left just enough room for a few slices of toast. If you didn't want a cooked breakfast, there were good options for cereal, yoghurt and fruit including prunes and apricots. We were particularly impressed to find our room had been cleaned and tidied when we returned there after breakfast!

During a rainy afternoon we also stayed at the hotel for a pot of tea which was very relaxing sat in front of the log fire in the lounge/bar area.

We also ate our evening meal at the hotel on one night. This was, on the whole, very good although we felt the duck was a bit overcooked and mentioned this at the time. However, the slow cooked venison we ordered was pretty faultless; extremely tender and full of flavour.

All in all, a very enjoyable short stay; definitely recommended.

I stayed at this wonderful small hotel for 3 nights. On arrival I was stunned by the amazing setting of the building which nestles on the hillside above Grange over Sands. The extensive terraced gardens are brimming with beautiful flowers even at this time of year. Outdoor seating would provide fantastic views over the bay in warmer weather. The hotel is cosy with comfortable furnishings and an open log fire. My room was spacious and clean with an extensive range of toiletries and a well stocked tea tray. The most impressive aspect of this hotel was t he wonderful food. Breakfasts and dinners are cooked to order and I cannot imagine that you would have better meals in a 5 star establishment. The family owners were very attentive and I could not find anything about my stay on the negative side.

We stayed here in September arriving early Saturday evening, the family run hotel is located along a long drive and is situated at the top of the hill. Inside it is quite traditional, homely and the bedroom/bathroom are adequately furnished. The hotel also allows guests to bring their pet dogs in and considering I’m allergic to animals I had no problem because of the cleanliness of the hotel. Possibly we should have stayed for the evening dinner rather than visit Grange over Sands because we could not find anywhere to eat even searching on the internet. The closest place for food was a pub called The Rose and Crown we found via Tripadvisor 4 miles away, sadly we can’t give you a review because every table was empty but had a reserve sign on. After finally findingsomewhere to eat we returned and the hotel car park was nearly full with non residents eating in the restaurant, possibly this shows how good the homemade food is. Looking at the breakfast menu maybe we should have stayed for dinner.
Overall the hotel is really fine and based near to the local woods good for country walks. If you want a hotel and a complete resort to be very quiet and away from today’s busy life this is for you.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for three nights in August and had a most enjoyable stay. It is a quaint hotel, with beautiful gardens and well located at the top of the hill above Grange-over-Sands and ideal for a quiet stay. We were quickly and efficiently booked in and shown to our room, offered an evening meal which we took as it was a Sunday and didn’t know the area. The room we had was a little small but suitable for the short stay and the bathroom with shower was functional and clean. Perhaps the décor needs a little updating. We found the staff most pleasant and the food very good, both breakfast and evening meal. No wonder they have many non residents having an evening meal. The free Wi Fi was an added bonus. There is easy access to the fell either by walking or travelling part way by car then walking but it is well worth the climb to the top for the views over Grange and beyond. All in all a pleasant hotel to stay in for a short break.

You will be genuinely surprised by the quality of the food here. We stayed 3 nights, eating in, and had a great meal every night- lots of choice and everything was as good as a top class restaurant. The location is really charming, with large and interesting gardens at the end of a lane out of town. The hotel was really comfortable, and while you will find places that have better overall facilities, nothing was a problem or in any way detracted from enjoyment of the visit. Overall great value

We had an early evening meal and found the whole experience lovely. There were families with young children, couples old and young there is even a restaurant area where you can take your dog in. Everyone was very friendly and the food was excellent with a great choice,
We have a caravan in the area so will be calling in again. Friends have ours have been too and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
You can also get a nice beer in the bar as well and a good wine.
The decor of the hotel and restaurant is charming with its antique furnishings and paintings. There is a lovely area to sit out as well.

Room Tip: We didn't stay in the hotel but trip advisor would only let me through if I left a review. I wo...

It's about 500 metres from the main downtown, steep but a beautiful walk. Here you really do get away from it all yet you are in easy distance ( by car ) to some wonderful attractions and magnificent scenery.
The place is clean and well run , the room we had was fine if a bit out of date. A snug bar/lounge a good spot for pre dinner drinks.
The staff are warm and helpful and know their job. Food ? Excellent breakfast ( do have the fresh fruit salad to start) with a good choice, the smoked haddock and scrambled egg was particularly tasty.
Early bird dinner menu had a good choice and was WELL PRESENTED AND WELL COOKED. Wine a bit pricey but well selected.
All in all a good place tp relax for a few days, eat well and be properly looked after.
