  • "Shore View is a great place for a relaxing holiday."

    Lovely view overlooking Morecambe Bay. It is nice and clean, no pets allowed, we are so glad. As some people do have allergies. We would love to go back again later this year. Thank you to the owners, it is a credit to them.

  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Shore View."

    Great property and fabulous location. Very private, peaceful and the perfect rest for my partner who is slowly recovering from a very serious illness in January. Loved coming back here each day after short trips out in one of our favourite areas which we have previously visited but that one had owners living in the property and lacked the privacy and quiet of Shore View. The weather was kind and allowed us to enjoy the garden and wonderful views from all the rooms especially the juliet balcony opening from the upstairs lounge in the evenings. Really hope to revisit. Top marks . Thankyou.

  • "We loved our stay and had everything we needed - except for wonderful weather, but it was March, so not surprising."

    It would have been lovely to sit and eat outside and enjoy the view across the bay. However the view was spectacular, especially from the lounge area. The proximity of access to the promenade was a bonus and we enjoyed the walk along the prom from Shore View to the railway station for our visit to RSPB Leighton Moss, a short walk from Silverdale station. Stuart and Carole kept in touch prior to our arrival, and Carole even sent me information about a talk in Grange, which she thought might be of interest. Highly recommended.

    The decor and the choice of furnishing , especially the kitchen/diner were in my favourite colour. The view from the lounge was great. Would like to stay in the summer to get the benefit of the outside area which is perfect for sunny days. Christine & Bernard

    The position of the house is perfect for walking into Grange along a lovely promenade, for using the local train service to other local landmarks and places of interest such as Arnside. The views from the lounge provide an ever changing picture of the dynamic estuary of Morecambe bay.This is a a very comfortable holiday home.

  • "The property had everything we needed and we found the beds to be comfortable."

    There is a railway line close to the property and we could hear the trains running early in the morning. The owner controls the gas central heating from his phone so we did not have the choice to turn the heating on when we were cold.

    Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay at Shore View. We would like to clarify that we do not control the heating whilst guests are staying and that our guests have control over the temperature at all times. However, we do have the facility to control the heating system remotely as we like to ensure the property is warm for guests’ arrival and to protect the property when it is empty. It also gave us the ability to assist you when you rang on the Sunday to say the property wasn’t warm enough and you could not adjust the temperature. We clarified the control instructions given in the information folder and we were pleased to note that from the Sunday evening you were able to alter the temperature yourself. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Shore View."

    It was our first visit to this property but it won’t be the last. Everything was really good: the bedrooms, bathrooms, dining area and kitchen. Every window had a perfect view of Morecambe Bay. This was probably due to the time of year and no foliage on the trees. Have been to Grange over Sands on numerous occasions, staying at all of the hotels over the years, but believe me, Shore View certainly has the views!!

  • "There was plenty of kitchen equipment in the property and the double bed was very comfortable, but I didn't find the sofas comfortable."

    The views from the property are wonderful, the upstairs lounge is a good idea but I would have preferred the kitchen to be alongside the lounge rather than on the ground floor. Lots of up and down the stairs !!!!! Overall I had a nice few days, handy for the promenade and the walk into Grange but sadly the weather spoiled it for me, but that can't be helped I know. Some of the knives in the drawer weren't clean but I soaked them, probably the dishwasher not doing it's job properly.

    An exceptionally clean, superbly equipped and comfortable house. Enchanting sea and and sunrise views over Morecambe Bay. Excellent location. Able to abandon car for promenade walks/shops. Beautiful Ornamental Gardens and Hazlemere Coffee Shop in Grange. Perfect location for easy car access to Lakeside ticket office, (boat trip on Windermere), Cartmel (sticky toffee pudding and 61 choices of ice cream), and Ulverston (surprisingly interesting Laurel and Hardy Museum). Recommend tapas at Greek restaurant in Grange over Sands. Altogether a very good week’s break. Highly recommend with especial thanks to property owners who demonstrated an incredible eye for fine detail of facilities. Even a telescope to look out over the Bay in first floor living room.

  • "Lovely clean, fresh, modern, and well thought out holiday home."

    Loved the fact that it had plenty of cutlery, pots, glasses and other equipment, meaning we were not continuously washing things and could just use the dishwasher once a day. Great views from the garden and also from the upstairs sitting room which is blessed with comfortable seating. Located about a mile along the promenade from the town but some shops including a small Tesco and Co-op are about half a mile away. Welcome pack of milk, biscuits and a few teabags and coffee sachets, and a useful cleaning pack of dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, dishcloth and pan-scrub. Really had a great time and so close to the lakes as well.

    The generous kitchen diner is very well equipped. Plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans etc.. Great to have a full size dishwasher, fridge freezer and washer dryer. Bedrooms are small but with hanging space and plenty of drawers. It was also easy to get the house nice and cosy with adjustable heating. Comfy beds and good showers. The patio was a lovely space to watch the sunrise over the shore. An easy walk to town where there are plenty of individual shops, small supermarkets, a great butchers and lovely cafes/restaurants. The development the property is in was nice and quiet. You would be hard pressed to find a better property in my opinion.

  • "This house is in a quiet, pleasant location."

    Parking is right next to the door which makes loading and unloading very convenient. It is like walking into a new house, everything is clean and well appointed. My only slight criticisms are that the photographs make the rooms appear to be larger than they are, and the reclining seats are not that comfortable if one person wants to stretch out! The mattresses, too (perhaps a matter of personal taste) are not that comfortable. The views are pleasant (obscured by a few too many trees) and it is an easy walk into Grange over Sands. Apart from the shed outside, there is not a great deal of storage space (the bedrooms do not contain wardrobes).

  • "Shore View was perfect for us."

    With my partner having Emphasymia we sometimes have problems being able to walk far if there are too many hills. Whilst Grange itself is quite hilly, we had no problems walking there from Shore View.The accommodation was outstanding with everything needed and more. Views were beautiful and having the lounge upstairs meant we could enjoy them even more. Having a small telescope provided was a great addition to the lounge as was the juliette balcony, so doors could be opened providing wonderful views across the bay, and sunrises which were amazing . I loved the large kitchen diner which made it a pleasure when I needed to cook instead of eating out. We so enjoyed our strolls into the town along the prom with several places to enjoy meals or just a coffee. For September we were blessed with good weather and able to enjoy trips from there to Windermere and up the coast to Walmley Island with great walks and views, and Whitehaven with it's beautiful harbour. There are lots of places within reach from here. The owners had thought of everything, we really didnt want to leave, but so hope to return again.

    We enjoyed exploring South Lakeland and visited Holker Hall Gardens and Brantwood Gardens, however National Trust places had to be pre-booked and we couldn't do this.

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. 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.
