Picturesque Grange over Sands looks out across Morecambe Bay and grew from a small hamlet into a promising small town with an influx of Edwardian era money. These historical roots still remain to this day, with a beautiful sea-front promenade, numerous ornamental gardens and traditional shopping arcades.
A quintessentially British seaside resort, Grange over Sands has retained the old-fashioned feel of a time gone by, with classic tea shops, cafes, family-run shops and restaurants in the town centre. In fact the whole town prides itself on the large number of family-run businesses in the area, giving a real sense of community spirit and offering visitors a very high standard of friendly, personal service wherever you go.
On the outskirts of the town are some of the finest parks and nature reserve areas in Cumbria, which attract a great deal of interest from nature enthusiasts, especially bird-watchers.
A cottage in Grange over Sands is perfect for days out along the coast and around the Cumbrian peninsula and you can be in the heart of the Lake District in no time to explore the beautiful Lakes and resorts. You''ll also find peaceful flower meadows, woodland areas that have been untouched for hundreds of years and dozens of great walking paths and trails.
Close by the village of Cartmel is a picture-postcard Lakeland village with traditional white-washed stone and wood buildings and a number of listed buildings which date back to medieval times. The charming winding narrow streets surround a small village square and the village''s Sticky Toffee Pudding is its very own speciality and can be found in the village shops. For a fine dining experience, the village is home to the Michelin-starred restaurant, L''Enclume, which is acclaimed as one of the best in the country and would require forward booking.
Each year Cartmel Races is held at the unique, charming and very compact race course that’s so close to the village that it’s almost part of the village itself.
