The Lake District’s truly ‘awesome’ scenery makes the region one of our most popular holiday destinations and one to which people return year after year. Unique in England, the area has a character and charm which has attracted visitors for many years and inspired poets, artists and writers for centuries. This year we are returning to the charming town of Grange over Sands which is a delight to explore. With a long level promenade, public parks, interesting independent shops, superb views over Morecombe Bay and being only 6 miles from Lake Windermere, it’s a great destination for a tour of the Lake District. 

We will be joined by one of our excellent local tour guides to see some of the best views and to learn the history and stories of the area. 

Very popular holidays so please book early to avoid disappointment.

3* Cumbria Grand Hotel

Set in 20 acres of grounds on the edge of Grange-over-Sands
this traditional hotel has beautiful views over Morecombe Bay. This impressive
building, built in 1880 is only six miles from Lake Windermere and in recent
years has undergone a sustained programme of refurbishment, bringing the hotel
up to an excellent standard. These improvements have certainly been noted in
our customer questionnaires. Relax and unwind in the Jacobean Bar, with
inviting sofas and a roaring open fire or if you fancy somewhere quieter there
are several lounge areas off the main bar area. Soak up the views out to the
gardens and the bay with a drink or a bite to eat. Again, with those lovely
views, your breakfast and dinner will be served in the Hazelwood Restaurant
which serves traditional cuisine using local ingredients. Other facilities
include a games room with snooker and table tennis and a large ballroom. The
spacious bedrooms are en-suite with bath and shower and feature a TV,
hairdryers and tea-coffee making facilities. Many rooms have panoramic sea
views over Morecambe Bay and beyond to the Yorkshire Dales. Free Wi-Fi in
public areas. Lift to all bedrooms.
