About the property

Set within a traditional stone-built dwelling in the heart of the pint-sized town of Grange-over-Sands rests this grade II listed, delightful duplex apartment, 1 Imperial House.

Centrally positioned between the picturesque fells of the Lake District and the scenic waters of Morecambe Bay, 1 Imperial House is the perfect base for a small family or group of friends looking to explore.

Stepping inside, kick off your boots in the handy hallway space and climb the stairs to the first-floor which features a handy boot room, then head into the amply-equipped kitchen/diner to rustle up some tasty treats to satisfy your appetite after an action-packed day, gathering your loved ones around the dining table in the neighbouring living/dining room to indulge.

Settle down for the evening and unwind with a seat on the sumptuous sofa in front of the Smart television to enjoy a Netflix movie marathon, warming the room with the heat from the electric powered wood burner, in the cooler evenings, or escape the excitement with a seat at the intimate table nestled in the kitchen, sharing a bottle of wine with your significant other.

Head upstairs to prepare for bed with a rejuvenating rinse in the fabulously-appointed contemporary family bathroom, making use of the washer/dryer in the neighbouring utility to refresh your wardrobe.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between two thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a delightful double room and a super-king-size room, framing stunning views of the scenic greenery of the treetops and offering a zip/link feature for flexible sleeping arrangements.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and take a leisurely stroll along the delightful promenade that decorates the seafront, stopping at one of the many quaint cafes that line the front for a well-deserved refreshment.

Discover the abundance of wildlife and tropical trees at the Ornamental Gardens or test your swing with a game at Grange Fell Golf Club.

Venture further afield to the coastal town of Barrow-in-Furness and explore the fascinating local industrial heritage on display at The Dock Museum, discover the medieval ruins of Furness Abbey, dating back to the 12th century, or enjoy a scenic walk atop the sand dunes at the National Trust site of Sandscale Haws National Nature Reserve, boasting breath-taking views across the Duddon Estuary across to the Lakeland Fells.

Watersports enthusiasts will be delighted with a visit to the nearby Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, hosting thrilling sessions in paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing on the tranquil waters, or if that's not your thing, board the lake cruise from Lakeside Pier and visit the tourist town of Bowness-on-Windermere, home to the well-known attraction, The World of Beatrix Potter.

Explore the delights of The Lake District with a stay at 1 Imperial House.

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.
