  • "Yewbarrow Cottage is a beautiful cottage with amazing view."

    Very comfortable with quality bedding & very comfortable bed's. The kitchen is fully equipped with every thing you need to cook a excellent meal after a day walking. The cottage is exceptionally clean and very welcoming. The owner has gone to a great effort to make their holiday home very comfortable, welcoming and home from home, there is even plenty of games provided for those wet days. The open fire is excellent on cold evenings. The conservatory offers excellent view over the bay & is great for bird watching. We would definitely stay again and we would recommend it to all our friends & family.

  • "Yewbarrow cottage was a lovely house in a prime location close to all the amenities."

    The house was very clean and had all the utilities needed for our long weekend away. I can imagine it would be beautiful in the summer with the wonderful views across the coast. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a great village."

    In winter the fire makes for very cosy evenings. In summer the outdoor areas will make it a wonderful place to stay with BBQ area and great views. The cottage is very comfortable and has all the necessary equipment to make it a perfect and comfortable place to stay.

  • "The cottage is a beautiful cottage with entrance of space a fully equipped kitchen and stunning views from both front of the cottage and the rear terrace."

    However I was bety disappointed in the cleanliness of the property especially in the current climate. I presumed that the late check in and early check out were so that the cleaners could co.e in and thoroughly clean the place, I doubt this happened before our stay. Having said that that was the only negative.

The property

Elevated above Grange-Over-Sands and taking in unfettered views across the bustling Cumbrian town and beyond to Morecambe Bay is Yewbarrow Cottage.

This semi-detached retreat offers an exceptional self-catering experience to one of the most sought after locations within the area, with both the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay within striking distance; this is a real find for families, friends and those alike.

Spy the sea before heading inside and into the sitting room, the woodburning stove set within a handmade brick reveal gives an immediate sense of the character of this property.

Light up the fire and flick on the Smart TV to unwind for the evening, alternatively, perch at the window seat to admire the views further with a tea in hand.

From here, merge into the fully-equipped kitchen, where traditional tiles lie beneath the Rangemaster and a number of other quality appliances to assist you in catering tasty dishes.

Regroup with your loved ones at the dining table or take your meals into the conservatory, where table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement, with stunning sea views.

Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom and a shower room, ideal for those who find stairs a little challenging.

The first floor landing of the property grants access to two further bedrooms, the master suite notable for its super-king-size bed with zip/link features, whilst the final bedroom offers another double bed with quality linens and plush pillows.

To the exterior at Yewbarrow Cottage, you have a choice of the rear garden with space for alfresco dining, or you could spend a sunny afternoon to the front, where the views continue to captivate.

Meander into the centre of town where you will find a good range of amenities, including great pubs, restaurants and cafés, in addition to shops for picking up the essentials.

Look forward to exploring the elegant Grange-over-Sands Promenade before paying a visit to the Ornamental Gardens, where you can enjoy a picnic amidst a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees, bliss!

For those feeling active, practice your swing at one of the two golf courses nearby, Grange-over-Sands Golf Club and Grange Fell Golf Club or get dressed up for the day at the races with Cartmel Racecourse situated close by.

Brush up on the local history with a visit to Holker Hall & Gardens set amongst 200-acres of gardens or hop on board the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway for a scenic journey amidst the Lake District countryside.

Those with children can take the car out to the Arnside & Silverdale AONB, where you will find a sandy beach, as well as easy walking trails with opportunities to spot wildflowers, birds and butterflies.

Avid ramblers can don their walking boots can head for the national park, where they will be spoilt for choice by the selection of mountains to climb, including Gummer's How, Whitbarrow - Lord's Seat, The Old Man of Coniston and the slightly further afield find of Scafell Pike.

Lake Windermere is also within striking distance, where you will find great attractions and activities for the entire group to enjoy.

With all of this and much more, secure your stay at Yewbarrow Cottage and look forward to a wonderful holiday in Cumbria.

About the location

GRANGE-OVER-SANDS

Cartmel 2 miles; Lake Windermere 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Formerly a small fishing village, the introduction of the Furness Railway transformed Grange-over-Sands into a fashionable Edwardian resort. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L’Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Other attractions in the area include Levens Hall, with its Elizabethan Hall and world famous topiary gardens, Holker Hall, Furness Abbey, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. There is also the 25 mile Cistercian Way which starts at Grange over Sands. Set amidst the southern lakes, the attractive town of Grange-over-Sands makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
