Choose Your Favourite Grange-over-Sands Holiday Cottages

Grange-over-Sands holiday cottages lie on Cumbria’s southern tip of the Cartmel Peninsula. The town has stood on the shores of Morecambe Bay since the 13th century. It grew from a fishing village into a popular resort during the 19th century, partly thanks to the arrival of the Furness Railway. With sandy beaches and the Lake District National Park on its doorstep, it has become a popular base to explore the region. 

Exploring the town centre from your Grange-over-Sands holiday cottage, you will discover elegant Edwardian architecture and a variety of independent shops. The coffee and ice cream on the promenade at Emma’s Café is highly recommended. At Home Café and Bistro is a good option for lunch, and The Commodore is a welcoming bar and restaurant serving great food prepared with the best local ingredients.

Landmarks to look out for include the listed lido, built on the seafront in 1932. Next to St. Paul’s Church, a distinctive clock tower overlooks the town centre. Don’t miss the beautiful park and ornamental gardens, with lakes where guests can spot many types of water birds. The peak of Hampsfield Fell looms over the town with a limestone tower monument at its summit, providing walkers with far-reaching views and shelter from poor weather. The unspoiled countryside and estuary near the town are a paradise for walking and wildlife-watching. 

Self-catering holidays in Grange-over-Sands are also popular among visitors planning to hike in the Lakeland Fells, which lie directly to the town’s north. Some of the region’s most scenic walks are enjoyed within a few miles of the town, with steep ascents that reward walkers with breathtaking views across the national park. Lake Windermere is a short drive northward, where swimming and sailing are popular. Just north of Grange-over-Sands, Cartmel Racecourse is a fun day out.
