  • "Victoria Mount was the perfect property for our birthday celebration weekend."

    It is in a great location providing fantastic views of Morecambe Bay and close to the shops and restaurants. The facilities suited all our requirements from aged 2 to 70 and provided everything we needed including wheelchair access. The property was spotless and warm with a fully equipped kitchen/dining room suitable for catering for larger numbers. The rooms were fully furnished with everything you would need. The children were kept busy and entertained with a variety of outdoor and indoor play equipment whilst the adults relaxed in one of the many comfortable seating areas. We take away many happy memories and would certainly recommend Victoria Mount to our friends.

  • "Our whole experience was brilliant from start to finish."

    The house is fantastic, in a beautiful location convenient to everything local. The house has been made with holidays and family in mind, allowing for excellent relaxation to be achieved when there. We loved every minute of our time there, as did the whole family. The owners are amazing, going that little bit extra so as to make sure your stay was as good as it could be. We’d visit again and again, it is so good. A massive thank you from my entire family for this great experience.

  • "We would have given this property 10 stars if we could have."

    It is stunning in every way. Its location in Grange is perfect with wonderful views of the Bay plus the convenience of having shops etc to hand. This is the best equipped property that any of our party of 12 have ever stayed at. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable and the garden has plenty of games and play equipment for all the family. This is the perfect place for a special holiday or family celebration.

    The house is superbly equipped with everything you need for a luxurious stay in Grange, with easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside. I can’t fault our stay. Victoria Mount was the perfect location to enjoy my wife’s 50th birthday with friends and family.

  • "Victoria Mount is a beautiful property in a fantastic location."

    The house has been decorated to a high spec and the hosts have thought of everything . I particularly liked the fact that all the beds can be made into singles and each room has its own bathroom . The oven was great, the fridge /freezer a good size and there were plenty of plates and glasses. We managed to sit 14 of us easily at the dining table . The view of the estuary is simply stunning from the balcony and the front facing windows. The hosts were in regular contact and made everything very easy . This was a perfect house to celebrate my 50th Birthday and I can’t wait to return . Thanks for a great stay !

  • "Victoria Mount is a fantastic property."

    You can see the owners have put a lot of thought in to making this house a wonderful holiday let for a large group. We were 14 for "Grandad's Alternative Christmas" and everyone was so complimentary about the property, the facilities and the superb view - even in the rain! The "icing on the cake" was the two Christmas trees and the lights on the staircases. I do not normally write reviews but I just had to share our delight with Victoria Mount.

  • "Excellent! We thorough enjoyed our relaxing stay here."

    Victoria Mount is an outstanding property. It is very large but also warm, peaceful and welcoming. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated in keeping with it’s age and yet enjoys every modern convenience. The seven bedrooms, six of which are en-suite are large and very comfortable. The outdoor spaces are finished to an equally high standard and it’s possible to enjoy the stunning and ever changing views of the bay from both the balcony and patios. There’s also plenty to keep children amused with table tennis and football, swings and a slide. The owners Jim and Celia are very pleasant, kind and helpful and they go the extra mile to ensure that the guests at Victoria Mount have the best of everything. We recommend this holiday property without reservation

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.
