Description

Set over four levels, this spacious property is perfectly poised for fabulous sea views and sunsets, and lies close to a myriad of attractions.

Set on the promenade, with stunning views across Morecambe Bay to a backdrop of Lakeland hills and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Little Gem bathes in fabulous scenery, winter and summer, whatever the weather, with ever-changing skies across the bay. It never fails to reward those who want to relax and watch the world go by. This fantastic, quirky, retro-styled house is very well appointed, and offers spacious and comfortable accommodation over four floors. There are two large en-suite bedrooms benefiting from superb sea views, and a south-facing sun room (snug) that opens onto a decked terrace and courtyard garden.

There are many places to see and visit in the Morecambe Bay area in both winter and summer. Within easy reach are local nature reserves and endless walking opportunities locally and within easy reach of public transport and car owners alike. In early spring, the snowdrop walk from Beetham to ‘Fairy Steps’ never fails to delight and there are miles of coastal, woodland and fell walking opportunities within a half-hours drive. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a 45-minute drive away, as is the South Lakes. With the announcement of an ‘Eden Project North’ a strong possibility on the central promenade and miles of dedicated footpaths and cycleways on offer, there is clearly much to interest fresh air and nature lovers in the area.

For the more active visitor, there is both sea and coarse fishing locally, sailing, parasailing and two golf courses. For children, there are sandy beaches, free to use swing parks and play areas, local parks with paddling pools, water splash zones and a pay to use indoor bounce centre with trampolines. A list of local ‘tourist favourites’ is available on request, direct from the owners. Walking and cycling also feature strongly in the local area with miles of traffic free cycleways, footpaths and very accessible canal and riverside footpaths for a quiet country stroll or bike ride.

Dining out is well catered for too with good food available within easy walking distance and beyond. For history lovers the historic Georgian city of Lancaster, with its fine architecture, historic castle and jail, the equally historic priory church, with stunning cross-bay views, and Williamson Park sitting high above the city. Sunderland Point, historic Conder Green and the marina at Glasson Dock, are all within a 30-minute drive. The quaint village of Heysham is also on the doorstep with the historic St Peter’s church and ancient stone carved grave site (thought to be Saxon) on the adjacent headland. Whether it’s walking, cycling or just relaxing and watching the world go by, Little Gem has something for everyone.

The house is also well served by bus and train, with a bus stop only 100 yards away on the promenade and two train stations within 1 mile with a frequent service into Lancaster and beyond. Shop 150 yards, pub ¼ mile, restaurant ¾ mile.

    Everything you need for an excellent holiday is supplied with the house, also good public transport links to the rest of the Bay area and further afield.

    As the name suggests this is a 'little gem': although the house is not so little.

    It certainly is a little gem with great sea views and a lovely garden to relax in no matter what the weather. The house was equipped with everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. The amount of stairs may be a challenge for anyone with mobility problems as the property is over four floors however with a bathroom on every floor except for the basement, the need for climbing can be kept to a minimum if necessary. The view from the top bedroom is amazing and you can see the Lake District on a clear day.

    Wonderful home, so relaxing and comfortable. It had everything you could need and the hosts were lovely people. I look forward to returning. Highly recommended.

    Our party had a great stay at this property, the Owners had thought of everything to provide us with a relaxing stay in this well equipped and comfortable home. A regular bus service runs yards from the property so we hardly used the car. Had a lovely trip by train to Arnside and Ulverston. As the house is situated on the Prom we spent many an hour walking, and then popping back to the property for a cuppa and then out again!

    A pleasant well equiped house with magnificent views. But not for anyone with mobility problems as it is situated on 4 floors. We were aware of this on booking but found the stairs quite steep especially those to the basement. We had no problems with parking as we were also able to use the space next door (also a property of the owner) but it is quite tight and access to the main road is sometimes compromised by cars parked too near the exit. Overall the house was well equiped with comfy beds, fluffy towels and a well presented kitchen. I could understand the previous comments about clutter, as there were many nicknacks, ornaments etc, but this did not get in our way although one felt it necessary to take care in some areas. We did not meet the owner but he gave clear instructions on the phone. Overall a pleasant week in a comfortable house with the added bonus of magnificent weather
