Beautiful house, comfortable and spotless.. close to shops and Lake District.
Very comfy and well located holiday home.. Well equipped and laid out. Lovely garden to relax in.
Lovely views to be enjoyed from the front living areas of the property.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hillberry and would highly recommend staying there, there’s so much to enjoy on your doorstep!
I booked the stay on behalf of my niece,her family and South African friends and all of their feedback was extremely positive.. They all loved the accommodation and could not praise it highly enough.
From my side the booking process was easy and the staff member at Sykes could not have been more helpful when I had a query.
Top marks to Sykes for customer care.
House was hired for a 50th Birthday celebration with family and friends age range 16 - 80.. Great accomodation with a good combination of rooms to suit out party. Spotlessly clean and warm too. Key collection was easy and owners were very welcoming and helpful.
Lovely semi detached property over 4 floors. Immaculate accommodation in the heart of Grange. Well appointed with everything you could possibly need & spotlessly clean.
Grange is a great place to stay with easy access to The Lakes.. Grange has lovely shops, a pretty park, nice places to walk to or for taking the train.
Hillberry was a super house. Perfect facilities for a large family, it was warm, comfortable and well equipped. Hosts were around but only if there was a crisis to face!! Thoroughly recommended.
This is an extraordinarily well equipped, spacious and comfortable property.. Having stayed in many holiday lets over the years, this has to be the best so far! This is the first time we've never had to go out to buy something which was missing (from Jeye cloths to tea strainers). The outside covered terrace was a lovely surprise, and a great place to sit and admire the garden with a glass of wine. We went with another couple on a walking holiday, and found we could get to all our planned walks by the excellent local public transport.
Five star accommodation at its best.
Fantastic property.. The pictures and marketing really does not do it justice at all. This is equipped to the highest standard with everything you could possibly need. It’s immaculately clean. We stayed as a family of 8 and it was perfect. We had a young child and there was a spare bed and cot ( in immaculate condition) in the huge master bedroom. It was also lovely to find a separate tv room which was perfect for the children. There are hundreds of dvds but also sky movies. We loved the kitchen space which was perfect for entertaining and it was lovely to all sit comfortably around one table as a family.
The owners were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. I sent various emails in the run up to our stay and they were very helpful. They provided lots of local information and it was lovely to be welcomed with fresh cookies and a lovely bottle of wine.
Grange-over-Sands isa fantastic location in itself but it’s also a fantastic base to explore other areas of the lakes.
I can’t recommend this property highly enough!
We had a superb stay at Hillberry.. It was ideal for a comfortable, and very special family birthday celebration
The house was perfect! Very well equipt kitchen and there was milk and cookies waiting for us which meant a cup of tea in the morning - priceless!
Lovely hosts, will definitely return.
Very comfortable house in an excellent location.. Our only grouse: lack of materials for day-to-day washing up and cleaning in the kitchen (pan scrubbers and brush for washing up not done in the dishwasher, dishcloth or similar for wiping surfaces, sufficient tea-towels).
Hillberry is a superb holiday home, exceptionally clean, with all mod cons & extremely comfortable in a quiet but very central location with great views from the upper rooms out over Morecambe Bay.. Proactive owners (who discretely live next door) kindly sent out lots of details prior to arrival. This makes a refreshing change at not having to chase for arrival details our end. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed staying at Hillberry including my parents in their eighties chosen mainly due to being pet-free and in close proximity to the town & promenade.Thanks for a wonderful holiday experience!
Hillberry is an exceptional property with plenty of space for all of our party in a beautiful house.. It is well equipped and close to lovely shops in Grange. It was an excellent base for us to enjoy our holiday. The owners were incredibly helpful and on hand if we needed anything. Trying to find the right house for a large family group isn't always easy...this has been our fourth try but Hillberry has just been perfect for all of us.
Lovely place, we all would highly recommend it.. We took our parents who are in their 70’s with 4 other adults in their 40’s and two children 6 & 9 the layout of the property was perfect. The location could not be better and the views from all the windows were breath taking. Great weekend had by all and we will be back without question.
A very comfortable house and central for many places.. The owners very nice and although next door did not make us feel as though we were being watched. A great place for more than one family. Would recommend to anyone. No supermarket near but lots of shops to get everything you need.
We went to Hillberry with family to celebrate my birthday we had a fantastic time.. The house was just what we wanted and more, it was very clean and we loved it. The location was great and Richard and Sarah made us feel very welcome.
We are going to recommend it to friends and hope to make a return visit. A big thank you to Sarah and Richard for being wonderful hosts.
Beautiful property and location.. Owners lived next door and were great . Cookies on arrival and a bottle of wine . Very clean . Will be booking for my family next year for sure . Thankyou the lads had a perfect weekend .Would recommend definitely .Nothing negative to say .
The house was amazing and we will definitely be back.. Perfect for two families to get together.
Great location with amazing views.. The owners are very friendly and the house was in immaculate condition on arrival. Service and hospitality were great. Hope future guests enjoy their stay as much as we did.
This is an excellent cottage and fantastic value for money.. Really nice people and the place couldn't be better.
Fabulous house, well equipped, great location and helpful owners..
This house is lovely! Lovely large bedrooms. Multiple bathrooms. Brilliant well equipped kitchen and large dining table.
Very spacious and great for kids - black out blinds, 2 x cots, high chair.
Lovely covered outside area for sitting (bit of a drop on grass area so children need supervision). Great location near shops in Grange, near to the prom. Grange itself is close for day out in Lakes.
Highly recommend it.
A warm welcome waited for us from the owners when we arrived at the property. The property was exceptionally clean and spacious and easily met our requirements, with fluffy towels and good quality bed linen. The covered patio at the rear of the property was ideal for relaxing after a full day out whatever the weather. It was convenient for visiting Lake Windermere and further afield, and close enough without being in the hustle and bustle. The grandchildren had lots of fun playing hide and seek over the 4 floors of the property. Not to be missed is a walk along the promenade to watch the tide rushing in, quite a sight to see. A big thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your amazing house. We would have no hesitation to recommend it to others.
The property was very clean and included everything we could possibly have wished for in terms of furnishings, utilities, kitchen equipment and space. The whole property was well decorated and it was a pleasure to spend time 'at home'. Everything had been thought of and an excellent selection of DVDs and books, as well as board games, made for easy leisure and family activities. We were particularly pleased with the garden and the extensive parking - as we brought 3 cars which fitted easily in the driveway. All the bathrooms came with hand-soap and toilet paper provided, which was very helpful. The biggest plus for the property was its size, which was large enough to hold our 3 families and provided space for privacy, but also accommodated everyone in a cosy living/dining area.
Everything about Hillberry was great and Grange over Sands is a fantastic holiday venue. We particularly liked the garden and outside dining area, the cleanliness and layout of the house was also good.
The accommodation offered at Hillberry was very clean and spacious and provided everything you could need for a home away from home. Our party of 6 adults found there was plenty of room to relax and enjoy the surroundings, including pleasant evenings in the garden. All rooms were nicely decorated, clean and comfortable, guides were provided for the local area and plenty of books, games and videos to keep everyone happy. Parking at the house enabled us to easily park our three cars. Overall we had a fantastic time, the weather was sunny and hot every day and we did not want to go home. Thank you to the owners, you have a lovely place there and we would recommend it as a great place to stay if visiting the Lake District and you want a more relaxed environment away from the hustle and bustle of the larger holiday places.
A great house which was easy to live in. There was a nice communal area for the whole family, and an especially lovely kitchen and bathrooms. The attention to detail was very impressive.
Everyone agreed the house was just what we wanted, the views from the lounge and bedrooms were excellent. The owners are a very nice couple.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The property was spacious, meticulously clean and very well appointed, with everything you could possibly need. We would certainly recommend Hilberry to all our family and friends.
Hillberry is the nicest, most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. The fittings and furnishings are top quality and no expense has been spared. Extremely spacious and light. Lovely views and a good sized, covered outdoor seating and eating area and a nice garden. A treat to come back to after days out and about. Highly recommended.
Hillberry was perfect for entertaining friends and family with great views over the bay. The property was central to all amenities and Grange itself is a lovely unspoilt place.
We had a fantastic week at Hillberry. The property was perfect and ideally situated within easy walking distance of Grange-over-Sands.
The property was well located with plenty of parking. It was immaculate and very comfortable.
Very high standard of accommodation and a good location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We loved everything about the house, the town and the area. The open plan living accommodation suited us very well and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners.
Beautiful house with amazing views. Owners couldn't have made better provisions of items needed when away from home. Plenty of space for our family and a perfect base location to explore the lakes. This place has it all, you can stay and not venture or travel around. Lovely friendly owners would definitely stay again.
The property was excellent and ideally situated with all needs within walking distance. The owners were most welcoming. A real home from home with all the facilities required. Well done.
This was our first visit to Grange-over-Sands and we were very impressed. Our property was a delight felt extremely comfortable, everything we needed. The owners were friendly helpful but not intrusive.
The holiday was brilliant, we really enjoyed the spacious warm and contemporary house finished to a very high standard. The pictures on the internet do not do it justice. We had a warm but unobtrusive welcome from the property owners. The WiFi was excellent and so was the sky package on the main television. The location was close to the shops, sea front and good walks so everything for the walker and shopaholic. We would definitely recommend it, you will not be disappointed and we fully intend to book further stays.
An outstanding property. So clean, tidy, spacious and well positioned in a pretty village with good walks amenities and public transport round the lakes, 100% satisfied. The photos do not do the place credit, it is far nicer with views to Morecambe Bay.
The size of the kitchen dining room made a family celebration very easy enjoyable. Very warm and comfortable property.
Hillberry was a very lovely family property which was very clean comfortable. I would highly recommend this property.
I spent my 50th birthday at Hillberry with friends for the first weekend and family joined me for the rest of week. It was a wonderful holiday just what I wanted for my birthday week. My friends and family all enjoyed it The house was amazing so clean and spacious, it had everything we needed. I would stay there again and so would my friends.
Hillberry was immaculately clean and every detail had been thought of. We were short of nothing. The owners were very friendly. The views across to the sea were breathtaking. It will be a difficult accommodation to beat.
We just stayed at Hillberry for a week and could not fault it. The house is clean and spacious and everything has been thought of by the owners - down to the ice packs in the freezer, kiddy friendly equipment and even a welcome chocolate cake! The location is fantastic as well with Grange being big enough to have quite a few shops but not being too busy like the heart of the Lake District. You don't spend hours in traffic jams here but its about 20 mins drive to some great locations. The best thing about this place is that it doesn't feel like a rental and more like a home to stay in for a week. On top of that, the owners are very welcoming and always about if you need any help. Would recommend and use again.
Beds vety comfortable
Very nice treat when we arrived chocolate cake@ wine couldn't ask for anymore everything was perfect
Stunning and spacious property. Tastefully and thoughtfully decorated and furnished. Spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Easily accommodated our party of 8. Hosts were pleasant and helpful, on hand if required but not intrusive. A bottle of wine in the chiller and a home made chocolate cake awaited us on arrival. Our party ranged in age from 11 - 80 , everyone enjoyed their stay and would be delighted to return.
I have rarely if ever marked something excellent all across the board but this property was. Everything was there in abundance, crockery, cutlery, bedding was 100% cotton and the towels were lovely and fluffy! House was excellent and good for the legs with all the stairs! Bathrooms were good and the shower, I have to admit, was one of the best ever that I have used.
Overall the house was excellent inside and out, and suited our needs perfectly.
Fabulous, spacious house which easily accommodated our party of eight. Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped. Clearly a great deal of thought and care has gone into the planning and upkeep of this lovely property. The owners were very friendly and have perfected the ideal balance of being helpful and on hand if required but not intrusive. Perfect covered area to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine when it appeared with clear roof providing shelter when the weather was not so kind! We enjoyed playing board games at the splendid dining table and appreciated the home-made chocolate cake and chilled wine that awaited our arrival. Our party ranged from age 11 to almost 80 - everyone loved Hilberry and would be very happy to return. Well done and many thanks to the owners.

The best thing about this place is that it doesnt feel like a rental and more like a home to stay in for a week. (albeit a lot cleaner than our own!). On top of that, the owners are very welcoming and always about if you need any help. Would recommend and use again
The Hillberry was probably one of the best self service accommodations I have ever stayed in. Really well equipped and clean! The owner was very friendly and helpful.
We loved everything. We had a lovely break in a fantastic house and the owner made us feel so welcome.
Beautiful holiday home and very well equipped. The beds were so very comfortable and the view amazing.
Would definitely recommend.
The cottage was spacious, clean and in an ideal location. Excellent parking, enough to fit 5 cars! The property owners, were extremely welcoming and friendly. A bottle of wine and chocolate cake were waiting for us when we came in. It was a lovely stay and we will definitely be returning!
First class accommodation. Perfect size for 4 women on a girls weekend for a special birthday. Owner could not have been more accommodating; the house was warm, comfortable and suited all of our needs. Would recommend the local butchers, vegetable shop and cafes. Good walk along the esplanade from Grange to Kent's Bank Station.
The house was clean, newly furnished and generally well-stocked. Conveniently located for the shops and surrounding countryside.
