Pilsbury Grange is a beautiful and interesting old building set in a delightful valley. There are lovely walks from the doorstep, or, if the weather isn't so good, cozy rooms and real fires in the house. It is the perfect venue for a family get together. Make sure you don't forget anything - it's a long way to the shops!

A beautiful house in a wonderful location. The house is full of character, numerous rooms to get lost in , and a lovely larger Kitchen / dining room for the whole family to sit around. All around are beautiful rolling hills with lovely walks through fields of sheep and cows. Although there are other holiday cottages on the site, you don't hear or aRead morere conscious of any other party outside the grange, and can sit outside in the large garden area and enjoy the summer.

Pilsbury Grange is a perfect house in the most wonderful position overlooking the Dove Valley. It has the friendly atmosphere of a family home rather than a done-up holiday rental. I would love to go back.

Pilsbury Grange is a wonderful house for a three generational holiday. Despite the (almost incessant) rain there was plenty of room to spread out, and places where people could go to be quiet and read as well. The table football and table-tennis table were in good condition, unlike we have found in some other places. The kitchen was the best equippRead moreed of any we have stayed in before - the only thing lacking was wooden spoons. Hide

A beautiful property in a brilliant location for whatever you wish to do in The Peaks. I stayed with my America friends for their last weekend of a three month summer vacation.
