This first and second floor apartment is located above a convenience store in the village of Grange-over-Sands, and can sleep up to 10 people in five bedrooms.

Church view is a first and second floor apartment, set above a convenience store, in the village of Grange-over-Sands just two miles from Cartmel. The cottage sleeps up to 10 people and has three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite and one with a double sofa bed, plus two single bedrooms, and two bathrooms, one with a separate shower and Jacuzzi bath. Also in the apartment is a kitchen diner, a utility room and a sitting room with a woodburning stove.

We stayed at Church View with family for the weekend and found the location, size and layout of the property great for our needs. We were disappointed however with the cleanliness of things like crockery and cutlery - some of which had been put away dirty and obviously not checked before our visit. The kitchen table was sticky and unclean also and one of the kitchen chairs was broken. The bathroom and one of the bedrooms had damp patches on the walls and there was a leak in the first floor radiator. Many of the batteries in the tv remotes and clocks were dead. We had good weather for the two evenings we were there but were disappointed with the outside seating area which was overgrown, unclean and another broken chair that couldn?t be used. Church View could be an amazing property with more attention to detail and a deep clean but sadly for us felt unloved not presented to the standard we were expecting.

Unimpressed - stayed here and discovered a dirty dishwasher and dirty toilet - owner disputes this!!

Family Break
My daughter booked this property. The house was very clean and tidy when we all arrived. The beds were comfortable and has a very good heating system. We could not find any kind of information booklet with regard to using the spa bath, condensing tumble drier, cooker etc, in the end we found the switch for the bath and finally worked out how the drier worked. It is located within easy reach of three small supermarkets, the only downside to this is some members of the family were woken very early when Tescos across the road had a delivery around 6:30am. Also the property sits above a Bargain Booze shop which can be heard mainly when opening the shutters but not too intrusive. I would suggest having a few more large pans in the kitchen. As the house can accommodate ten people, cooking spag bol for this number with just one large pan and two small pans simply is not enough. On the whole all the family enjoyed this property.

Disappointing sleep
This flat is absolutely great for position, plenty of space, big rooms and good facilities. I would make it a regular place to stay in a heartbeat EXCEPT the mattresses were so uncomfortable I hardly got any good sleep/rest. Can't believe nobody has mentioned this previously, 4 adults have all had the same experience on the main bedroom mattress and the doubles too. Ended up using the duvets as toppers to try to make it better. Would love to go back but not until the box spring rock hard mattresses have gone! Please let me know when they're changed! Most important thing for a holiday is to catch up on rest so please change them for decent ones, never slept in any hotel/apartment with such bad ones. Sorry. If you book take a topper with you and it's a great place!!!!

Such an ideal property for needs. The location is great, the property is spacious and the independent feel of the stay made us feel very relaxed! Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again in the future!
