What time is check-in & check-out?

Our standard check-in time is between 1600-2200 & check-out is by 1000 on the morning of your departure.  Please contact us in advance if you’d like to check in or our outside these times so we can make arrangements, if possible.

If you’re a cyclist and want to get a ride in on your first day, feel free to arrange an earlier arrival and we can store your bags whilst you go out and ride.  If you want to ride on your last day, we may be able to keep one or more of your group’s rooms open so that you have somewhere to shower and change when you’re finished.  Please check with us first as this will depend on how full we are that evening.

Where have your booking & cancellation policies gone?

They used to live here but they’ve moved to their own page. Take a look if you want to know more about minimum stays or amending / cancelling your booking.

Are you child-friendly?

Absolutely! We’re happy to accept bookings from families with children, subject to a maximum of two infants & children per adult in your group. We class any guest aged 2 or younger as an infant, between 3 & 12 as a child and everyone else as an adult. We don’t allow children to share a bed with adults as non-paying guests (infants are fine), so please book the Red (family) room if you want to share a room with your children.

See our booking policies page for more advice on which rooms are suitable for your group.

Are you pet-friendly?

Unfortunately, even though we love them, we’re not able to accept pets.

Are you bike friendly?

Most definitely. As cyclists ourselves, we make sure we have everything you need, from very secure storage for 20+ bikes to kit & bike washing, help with routes & workshop facilities.  See the Cycling at The Grange pages for more info.

Can I get here on public transport?

We’re easy to reach by Train or Bus, Bike, Plane or Car. See the How to Find Us page for more details.

Do you have charging facilities for electric cars?

We do not have a fast electric car charge point on site, however we can charge your car via a standard plug socket if you bring your adapter. This will charge your car at approximately 2kW per hour. We will bill you for this at 35p per kWh (price as at July ’22, this charge may vary as our electricity costs change over time).

There are lots of fast charge stations across the local area at supermarkets and retail parks if you want a full fast charge.

Do you have laundry facilities?

Yes. We will wash and dry regular laundry for £5 a load, however there are no facilities for guests to do their own.  The Cycling area has kit drying facilities and we also have shoe-heaters to dry out wet cycling shoes and walking boots.

Do you have kitchen facilities for guests?

No. The Grange is not self-catering so you can’t use our kitchen, our barbecues or use a barbecue or portable cooking facilities that you’ve brought with you. We do evening meals if you contact us in advance, we’re happy to recommend some great restaurants in the area and you can also bring a take-away or a picnic back to the house – we’ll even provide plates and cutlery for you. 

Can I bring my own alcohol?

Yes. The Grange is fully licenced with a great selection of drinks available for you to buy at reasonable prices, but we know that guests sometimes want to bring their own.  If you do then we charge a corkage fee (£1 per beer/cider bottle or can, £5 per bottle of wine and £20 per bottle of spirits) for this & we’ll happily chill them for you and provide glasses.

Where did you get those…..

….shoe Warmers? ebay. They take a few weeks to come from China and you’ll need to put a UK plug on them but at £5 each they’re well worth the trouble.

….cycling ducks? Duck Shop (yes, really….)

….awesome sauces you serve with breakfast? Chilli of the Valley – who also sell award winning hot sauces ranging from mild to insane strength
