The property

Grange-over-Sands 1.5 miles.

This superb detached cottage is situated in the small village of Kents Bank, just 1.5 miles from Grange-over-Sands.

Boasting spectacular views over Morecambe Bay from the first floor, this delightful cottage is conveniently located within a few minutes’ walk from Kents Bank railway station and village shop.

This marvellous cottage is the perfect base for families and friends who wish to spend time together in a charming corner of Cumbria.

With wonderful styling and furnishings throughout, this cottage has a superb first floor kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area.

Also on the first floor is a bright and contemporary sitting room with gas fire and a patio door which opens out on to a large sunny terrace, where you can relax with a drink and admire the forever changing views across the bay.

On the second floor are three bedrooms, including a master super king-size double room with en-suite shower room, as well as a family bathroom, and on the ground floor is a cloakroom with basin and WC.

Attached to this holiday home is a garage with laundry facilities and bike storage, and after a busy day exploring the area on foot or by bike, why not return and enjoy spending time in the rear, enclosed, terraced garden?

Being so close to the branch railway line it’s a shame not to hop on board and take a journey across the bay to the lovely seaside village of Arnside.

Alternatively, drive the few miles to Cartmel in order to browse the charming shops, or you may wish to dine out in style at the famous L’Enclume restaurant.

Younger guests will love the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway which links in with the Windermere Steamers that take you up Lake Windermere to the bustling towns of Bowness and Ambleside in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

An excellent cottage that provides an ideal family base, all year round.

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.
