What a fantastic place to stay. We had a lovely warm welcome from Hilary and Phillipa, who left us a delicious homemade chocolate cake, chocolates and a bottle of wine. Bliss! The house was immaculate and had everything that you could want, and it had so much character. Everything was provided for us, and the children loved that there were two sitting rooms so that the adults could go in one room and not disturb them!! We would have no hesitation in going to stay there again. Thank you ladies, you should be very proud of yourselves.
Our large family of 7 fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived, with a wonderful welcome, which included a yummy home-made cake with milk, tea etc so we could relax after the journey straight away. The whole house is bright and beautifully appointed with lots of hiding places for the 14-23 yr olds! when they played hide and seek. Garden relaxing and great to eat out in when sunny and the lovely underfloor heating meant you could pad around in socks. Hilary was a great host being there exactly at the arrival and departure times that she had indicated and took time to talk and explain things in the house and the area. The internet connection was greatly appreciated, although Mum and Dad enjoyed the relaxing time away from the 'hectic' of normal life. The Grange was a little oasis of peace and quite, but at the same time within easy reach of so much, both town and country.
I hired this place to celebrate my father's 80th birthday with family and believe we could not have found anywhere better. The property was perfectly maintained containing everything you required with plenty of car parking space and a lovely outdoor seating area. The owner, Hilary and her family, could not have been more helpful and had gone that extra mile to ensure we all enjoyed our stay. There was tea, coffee, sugar and milk waiting for us on arrival as well as a bottle of wine and box of chocolates. They even provide a decorated birthday cake and a birthday helium balloon. There was plenty to do close by and a pub serving good food within easy walking distance. What more could you ask for?
Thank you Hilary.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful house. Everything was of the highest quality, from the fixtures and fittings, furniture, décor, beds, kitchen equipment etc. I must make a special mention of the owners of the cottage who really do take pride in their property and give the best levels of customer service that we have experienced.
We were in the area for a family wedding but intend to come back again to explore the area.
Wonderful and suited to a large family group

We booked this stay for my son's wedding in nearby Denby Dale. The Grange was awesome accommodating us all in style. Everything we needed was to hand and the quality of the equipment etc was first class. Clean beyond belief. I also loved the handwritten letter from Hilary prior to the visit. Most welcoming. Thank you and we will be back!
I was tasked with arranging a weekend get together for some friends who are scattered ariounf the North and last saw each other 5 years ago. I literally stumbled across The Grange through pure luck and was over the moon when I found it was available.
What a find!
From the beautifully handwritten confirmation letter sent by the owners, to the warm welcome - including home made chocolate cake we had a fabulous weekend. The pictures are lovely but they don't do the place justice - to see what I mean, you really have got to go there.
The house is really spacious. It's quite an old property and has been lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard. The gardens are a delight - with illuminated well that looks as though it's a hundred feet deep!
We have all said that we would like to visit the place again with our families and I'm sure we will.
