Overlooking the open expanse of Morecambe Bay, Lothlorien is a homely bungalow situated in the pretty community of Kents Bank, close to the village of Grange Over Sands and just five minutes drive from the popular “foodie” village of Cartmel. Owned by a local family, Lothlorien benefits from the ever changing views and light of Morecambe Bay with its amazing skies, breath taking sunrises and in an evening the lights of the village that surround the bay are like fairy lights as they reflect in the sands and the water.
Offering two bedrooms, a welcoming lounge with bay window, a fully fitted kitchen with dining table and a spacious rear garden with patio area, Lothlorien provides a lovely place to relax and unwind within easy reach of lovely villages, local shops and some great places to eat and drink.

Lothlorien is ideally located to explore the wonders of the English Lake District, being 8 miles from Newby Bridge at the foot of Windermere where you can easily get to Bowness, Ambleside and Keswick.
Not far away is the market town of Ulverston, the birthplace of Stan Laurel. You can see the house he was born in and visit the Laurel and Hardy museum. There is a wonderful bronze statue of Stan and Ollie outside the Coronation Hall.
