Description

This interesting property converted from a 19th century gentleman’s residence is built into the cliff in the heart of ‘old’ Grange. Approached by a side passageway, the holiday apartment is ideal for visitors who like to be out and about sampling the wealth of delights this area has to offer. Once a fishing village, transformed by the advent of the Furness Railway into a fashionable Victorian and Edwardian resort, Grange-over-Sands today is a relaxing oasis in the English Lakes, featuring shops, a long traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and vantage points for bird watching. Cartmel village with its medieval priory and National Hunt racecourse, the Lakeland Miniature Village and Arnside Knott (NT) are among the myriad of attractions within a few miles of the town. There are a number of festivals on in the area including Holker Flower Festival the last weekend of June, the Steam Festival at Flookburgh the last weekend of July and Prom Arts the last Sunday of the month between April and September. Tea rooms, a selection of shops and a pub serving food are about 700 yards away, and golf is available nearby.

About the local area

Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, Cartmel is easily accessible, with its winding streets, pretty cottages, whitewashed houses and medieval buildings leading to the village square. The village offers visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, and eateries.

Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings providing, as they have for centuries, friendly inns, well stocked shops and private dwellings. It is also home to Britain's smallest National Hunt racecourse and the National Trust attraction of Cartmel Priory Gatehouse, a historically important building situated in the heart of the village.

Occupying one of the most attractive spots in the area, Grange-over-Sands looks out across the expansive sands of Morecambe Bay, a rich feeding ground for many species of birds that take advantage of the great climate in the area. It is easily accessible from the Lake District (Lake Windermere is only seven miles away) and towns such as Kendal are also just a short drive from here.

There is much to do and see on the Peninsular from golf , horse riding and fishing to hot air ballooning and parachuting! There also a good number of great walks, plus many places of historical interest.
