  • Mrs Peters

    “We were a group of 10 adults and 4 children and found the house just beautiful with plenty of space for all.”


    It was a great location and well situated for A short walk to the village and promenade. The owner kindly allowed us an earlier check in due to personal circumstances which was most helpful To our party. The property had all the basic necessities in the kitchen. Views were lovely, pretty garden and some comfy seating on the patio. Be wary of smaller children near the edge as there is a steep drop to the road. The cinema room was great for the younger ones And had Netflix, prime etc. Games room upstairs got used a lot too. We had a wonderful stay and will hopefully return at some point in the near future.

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, 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.
