  • "A very nice little apartment with lovely bay views in a leafy quiet street, very clean and tidy."

    It would have been useful to have WiFi.

  • "Our second visit and again we really enjoyed our visit."

    The views over Morecambe Bay from the kitchen and lounge are spectacular. Good location for walking in the southern lakes but a steep climb up from Grange village.

    Thank you for returning and enjoying! Mike Property Owner

    The walk up from the town is steep, but you soon get used to it! The only downside was that I didn;t find the settee very comfortable.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this well equipped apartment, not least the wonderful views across the bay."

    We alternated walks along the promenade in Grange over Sands with day trips to the attractions of the Lake District. There is so much to explore, it's no wonder so many guests make return visits to this property.

    Thank you for your feedback. Hope you come again! Mike Property Owner

  • "We are fans of Grange over Sands and surrounding area."

    This was our second time at Baytree Apartment. While it was good the first time (this was the reason we had booked it again) this time it had the added benefit of a recent good quality new kitchen and bathroom. It was clean, tidy and comfortable. It lacks some non-essential frills like a dishwasher and washing machine but it has a nice garden area to the back and allocated parking. The apartment is close to the town but on a steep hill which gives you a work out on the way back up but as a result the view over the bay is great. We have booked to go again for a few months’ time.

    Thank you. Glad you enjoyed! Mike Property Owner

    Loved the view and James Bond villain chairs to swivel round. Well equipped. Although a good non stick would have been appreciated. Great area for exploring on foot, car or train the southern fells, nearby Carmel and Ulverston.

    Glad you enjoyed and explored! Mike Property Owner

  • "Everything about the flat was extremely good and we would recommend it."

    There is a very steep climb for non motorists, like us to Charney Road, from centre of Grange. However, we would book this flat again. The view from the flat is wonderful! Just two small points, lamp over bed head didn't appear to work and the table leg in front room fell off when we tried to move it out of the corner!

    Thanks for your feedback. Lamp sorted and table leg glued back on!! As for the climb, I think it saves going to the gym!! Cheers, Mike Property Owner

  • "We could have happily stayed longer!"

    This wee apartment is an absolute gem of a find. This was our first visit to the area and we planned a hiking and cycling holiday, Grange over Sands was a great base. The town is a pretty and friendly place with plenty of shops and eateries. The Fruit and Veg shop was brilliant and there were many other independent traders. We didn’t use the butcher but it was always pretty busy on passing! If you’re not too mobile then it is quite a hill to walk back to the property! The apartment itself was very homely and comfortable, the 2 chairs were great for relaxing in after a active day out with amazing views over the town to the bay…..we didn’t put the TV on once! The kitchen was modern with everything you need, the bathroom was modern and functional. The bed was firm but very comfortable for us, plenty of room for hanging clothing and putting things away in draws. We would highly recommend this apartment. *there is a parking space marked, one morning we found a black scuff mark on our vehicle which we think was caused by the black car that parks in the bay for No49. Fortunately it wasn’t dented. This is obviously outwith the control of the owners but just for noting, there is plenty of parking on the road if required.

    Thanks for Your feedback. Pleased you enjoyed your visit and were comfortable. Come back again! Mike. Property Owner

  • "Lovely location - awful, awful condition."

    Dirty towels, dried food in the microwave, rusty pans that couldn't be used, scratched and greasy frying pans with non-stick coating flaking off, absolutely disgusting dirty and mouldy shower curtain, utensils in the drawers that still had dried food attached, dirty mugs in the cupboard, food debris down the side of the cooker... all photographed and reported to Sykes. Oh, yes, dirty freezer and fridge with gunky food residue and the stair handrail was sticky and dirty... all of this in a time of a Covid pandemic... so much for Covid-safe cleaning! I spent a good couple of hours washing and cleaning just to feel safe enough to stay overnight. As an aside, the bed is rock hard and the floorboards creak loudly (and I mean loud enough to echo through the whole flat). Honestly - I cannot even comprehend how the owner feels that a mouldy shower curtain, still caked in dirty sludge, is acceptable for his customers. Similarly, would he want to cook with rusty flaking saucepans or use utensils that have melted through to the nylon core all complete with added dried on food debris? This is a lovely, budget-friendly apartment but a low price shouldn't mean lower hygiene and cleanliness. What a pity that housekeeping issues completely ruined our time there.

    Thank you for your feedback. I have inspected the property after you left - the cleaners had been in before I got there. The apartment was acceptably clean and tidy. Some of the pans had had the non-stick coating damaged and have been replaced with stainless steel ones. The cleaning, company have been under pressure during covid - for obvious reasons. I had not been told of any particular problems. I am sorry that you felt that the apartment did not come up to your very high standards. Mike Flitcroft, owner. Property Owner

    Bed not quite so comfortable, but O.K. Quiet residential area and, as stated, a very steep hill ... but an easy walk to the top of Hampsfell. However, without a car, not easy to nip out for a pint of milk. It was hard work pulling my suitcase up from the Railway Station! Lots of maps and details of walks in the area.

    Sorry about the creaks. The floor is solid concrete - the creaks are from the boards on top. I am trying to find a solution. It only happens occasionally, and apartments below cannot hear it. Thanks for your feedback. Property Owner

    Very quiet and peaceful, surrounded by greenery, it was lovely to sit with patio window open in fine weather. Neighbours were quiet and pleasant, with good parking and rubbish / recycling provision for the apartment blocks. The property would probably suit keen walkers needing a comfortable base rather than indoor down-timers or keen cooks. There are limited options for a short stroll due to uphill position - a car is more or less essential to go down into town for shopping or a walk along the front - and the lack of wi-fi is a big drawback, particularly as phone connectivity was weak and unreliable. (However freeview TV, DVD and CD player all worked well.) Despite this, it was a good spot for me being 2 minutes walk away from relatives and I will book again.

  • "There is only one matter I'd like to draw attention to and this concerns the cleanliness of the kitchen door ."

    There was some grime where people commonly touch the door with their hands under the area of the handles and this was most apparent to the rear side facing the rubbish bin behind the door. Other doors needed less attention in this respect. I would also draw your attention to the bin being so very close to the warm air ventilation duct as this increases the potential for bad odours coming from the bin and possibly even a fire hazard if the bin's contents were particularly flammable,- although this is improbable. I hope you attended to renewing the strip light filament in the kitchen as this declined to illuminate in the evenings. The area immediately behind the entrance door reflects some dampness but these odours were managed by the wall heater in that area. Overall I enjoyed my week in the flat and would come there again.

No one could ask for more, The kitchen was well equipped, and so nice, that even, me with my poor abilties in cooking felt tempted to try. If my husband had been with me, I really would... There was only one single thing, that could be improved; The bathroom is very nice, but I would prefer a Glas separation instead of a ? Sheet?

    The view from the lounge and kitchen windows was delightful - right across the Bay. Even though it was February, if the sun was out, I didn't even need the heating on as the place warmed up so much with the sun pouring through the big picture windows. The area was very quiet and peaceful and, providing you are fit enough to manage the very steep hill on the way back, walkable down to the wonderful promenade and shops in Grange itself. My only negative was that, despite trying on numerous occasions, I couldn't get in touch with the owner to get the keysafe code. Fortunately, Sykes were able to give me the code, but I then had problems when I arrived finding where the keysafe was especially as there were 2 hidden in a storecupboard! Had I been able to contact the owner, it would probably have been made clear which keysafe to use and where to find it. However, again, Sykes were extremely helpful and eventually sorted it for me so I could get in. This would not deter me from returning for another holiday as the apartment is lovely but it is worth mentioning as it made the process more difficult than it should have been. Many thanks to Sykes though for sorting it out for me.

About the location


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.
