  • “This was one of the cleanest and ...”
    This was one of the cleanest and best equipped properties we have stayed in since we have been booking through Sykes. The location was an excellent base for exploring the Southern Lakes and North Lancashire.

The large lounge, with wonderful large bay window, has stunning estuary views.

This delightful apartment also has the added bonus of off road allocated parking.

There is a superb private garden to the front with a seating area, perfect for alfresco dining, and to sit and enjoy the beautiful views of the estuary.

Stepping outside, the amenities of Grange-over-Sands are all on your door step to enjoy with the cafes, shops, bakeries and chocolatier.

Also within easy walking distance is the railway station where you enjoy a trip up the west coast or hop across the estuary over the viaduct to Arnside.

Once there, you can sample the real ales in the award-winning pubs or walk on the front and have a fish and chip supper.

You can also walk up Arnside Knott to see the stunning vista of Morecambe Bay and the lake land hills above and beyond Grange-over-Sands.

Back across the estuary in Grange, there are also lovely park gardens and the bracing promenade walk from the station along the shore to Blawith Point.

Just 10 minutes away is the attractive, historic, village of Cartmel, home to sticky toffee pudding and the UK’s smallest racecourse with meets during the summer months.

The ancient 12th century abbey is also worthy of a visit, and if you enjoy historic houses and gardens there is Holker Hall, Levens Hall with its world-class topiary and gardens and Sizergh Castle, all within easy reach and have delicious cafes offering home-made food and local produce.

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, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. 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.
