    We arrived for a week 28th September, we made a last minute change to our booking to allow my parents to join us and also their dog – this change was no problem and quickly organised by the owner who made sure that additional beds were made up and towels were available which was lovely. The apartment itself is modern, clean and very spacious with beautiful views out across the bay. I have to say that out of all the cottages we have rented over the years – this one had by far the most detailed information pack I have seen! Everything was listed to ensure that you have no problems (i.e. how to use the oven, heating, WiFi!) – this was a great touch as it meant you weren’t constantly guessing how things worked. There is everything in the apartment you could need. The kitchen is very well equipped so you will have all the pans, pots, roasting dishes, cups, plates etc that you could possibly need! That was a refreshing change to some previous rentals we have used. There was also the lovely touch of the welcome pack which included coffee, jams & marmalades and some freshly ground coffee and milk. That was very welcome after the journey from home to the Lakes! Michael the owner was extremely helpful and was always on hand via text or phone should he be needed, he gave us detailed information on pubs/restaurants where our dogs would be welcome. When we returned home we realised we had left one our dogs food bowls, Michael kindly posted it back to me the next day at his own cost which was very much appreciated. Grange-Over-Sands itself is lovely, it’s a steady walk down the hill from the apartment. There are several shops (Spar, Co-op, Tesco) for all your general needs and an amazing Butchers and fruit and vegetable shop. So, you don’t need to stock your car with supplies before you travel, you can get everything here. There are two pubs (Keg and Kitchen/The Commodore Inn), both of which are dog friendly and a number of takeaways if you don’t want to cook. Lake Windermere is about 20 minutes away by car and if you want a nice walk (around 7 miles in total) then follow the national trust walk in Elterwater, we had a glorious walk in the sunshine through the hills. I would definitely recommend staying at the Rowans, it’s a lovely place in a lovely town and we hope to return again soon.

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.
