    “We’ve just returned from a weeks stay at Winster Cottage as a family of four with two very young children.”

    Absolutely beautiful location, very peaceful and the views out of every window are absolutely stunning! Our three year old enjoyed watching sheep, cows, swans, geese and even a heron!

    Absolutely beautiful location, very peaceful and the views out of every window are absolutely stunning! Our three year old enjoyed watching sheep, cows, swans, geese and even a heron! The house has been renovated to a beautiful standard and I’ve never stayed anywhere cleaner! It also smelt incredible! Lovely powerful shower in a very clean, bright bathroom. Everything is good quality ie linen and towels etc. So much character has been added during fhe renovation (there’s a photo album in the kitchen if you’re nosey like me!) The conservatory is such a fantastic place to sit and has air con to keep it a comfortable temp. The utility room was an added bonus, equipped with a washer and separate tumble dryer. Never thought I’d be doing washing on holiday but with a 3 year old and a baby it was inevitable! The cupboards are stocked like nowhere I’ve ever stayed, with washing detergent, loads of essential like condiments and array of full size packs of tea and coffee. The garden is large, flat and fantastic for children to run off some steam. A man came to cut the grass whilst we were there and was so friendly. Thanks so much for some lovely family memories!

About the location

GRANGE-OVER-SANDS

Cartmel 2 miles; Lake Windermere 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Formerly a small fishing village, the introduction of the Furness Railway transformed Grange-over-Sands into a fashionable Edwardian resort. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L’Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Other attractions in the area include Levens Hall, with its Elizabethan Hall and world famous topiary gardens, Holker Hall, Furness Abbey, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. There is also the 25 mile Cistercian Way which starts at Grange over Sands. Set amidst the southern lakes, the attractive town of Grange-over-Sands makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.

Please note: property sleeps a maximum of 5 people including any infants.
