    Simply one of the best historic houses I’ve visited and I’ve been to a lot! Lovely informal rooms, friendly and helpful staff. The gardens are lovely and there’s a lovely cafe too. Definitely worth a visit.

    I think that recent reviewers were transferring negativity about Grange in general - didn't seem a lot happening when we visited - onto the promenade. The latter is a decent place to walk with well-chosen shrubs and plenty of colour when we visited. You can step off it and within a few minutes step onto the famous sands.

    Always visit here, fond memories of Mum and Dad photos. The park is fairly small and has a lovely manmade lake. Geese were a bit of a hand full and bird seed available to feed them all. Nice to see seed on offer and not bread. I do miss the oriental ducks of days gone past and after years I still cant believe they were stollen, what a shame! Toilets, now I am disabled I seem to review all toilets where ever I go lol. Parking is always a big problem even on a cold October brisk morning. Directly opposite the loos there is a T junction coming down a steep bank I always find one of the two spaces free (note not disabled spaces), fairly difficult wee hill with my walker but the spaces outside the loos are always, but always, taken (same cars each day). Toilets have the usual and thank you for radar key access. No hoists or sink lowering but everything clean and working.

    Beautiful private garden open under National Gardens scheme for a small donation of £5. We visited by chance as we were in the area the 1st Sunday of the month. Jonathan and Margaret have created a number of fascinating spaces including the sunken garden with Chusan palm trees, a kitchen garden, a fern garden, a Japanese garden with a beautiful infinity pool. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and happy to speak with visitors. The dahlias were just in bloom and he recommended a visit later in the season to enjoy them in full bloom. There are plenty of quirky features, stone sculptures, bronze statues of their children, stained glass windows in the potting shed and bee mosaics. The palm house is stunning with a lap pool. The views from the top of the garden as well as from Prospect Tower over Grange over Sands are stunning.
    Refreshments were available on the tea lawn which has an iron gazebo. The mixture of iron work and landscaping in this garden is very interesting. Every corner there is something of interest and fun
    A really lovely afternoon, thank you Jonathan and Margaret for sharing all of your hard work

    An unbelievable experience to share a short time with these majestic animals. Dee and Daniel are so knowledgeable and dedicated. We met Maska in October and went back to meet the puppies. Will definitely be back to see how they are progressing. Highly recommended, just do it! ❤️🐺

    Perhaps I missed everything that this reserve had to offer but I failed to see a lot. Howevedr in my walk in the grounds of the Cumbria Grand Hotel, I did hear and see a good variety of birds and some wonderful yew trees
    Clearly there are escorted walks in the reserve and perhaps I would be happier with it had I been on one of those walks
    It is however alovely area and a nice walk

    We booked a horse riding weekend for two (two private lessons and two private hacks) over three days, and couldn't have been happier with our experience. We were complete beginners and a little anxious to say the least, but the staff were friendly, encouraging and professional at all times. The horses were well chosen for us in size (I am a larger lady) and temperament, and to our surprise, we were riding independently in the arena and our hacks (walking speed) before long. Clearly we were not naturals at riding (or indeed getting on/off the horses), but the staff never let on. We are definitely keen to return and learn more based on this weekend. Thank you!

    We had never heard of this place but at a visit to the Lakeland miniature village, we learned that the last wolf in England was caught here.
    We had a lovely walk, mostly flat with a little scrambling over low rocks. The grandchildren loved exploring, climbing & looking into caves.
    A very special place, much loved by birders, as well as walkers. Take a camera!
