The exceptional sunshine we’re experiencing in Cumbria and the Lake District this spring and where its felt more like a continental summer, is truly exciting and everyone is hoping it lasts!
The weeks are flying by and couple that with work, life, events and the school summer holiday, it is the perfect time to book a short break. Cumbria and especially the chilled pout Grange over Sands is very much prepared and perfectly on hand to help.
Grange over Sands is a lovely town whatever the weather (even if it turns a little damp!) where there are plenty of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants for dining al fresco. It also has the fabulous Morecambe Bay to walk beside so the best of both worlds being able to feel the sand in between your toes.
For places to visit then Cartmel is a stunning village and the home of Cartmel Races. It’s also the foodie capital of Cumbria. Holker Hall is another tip having both the hall to look around as well a the gardens which are at their best at this time of the year. The new bar and brasserie Ilex there is one to look out for.
And Grange has some lovely places to stay on a weekend away. Bay Villa luxury B&B in Grange over Sands on Main Street has fabulous views and a choice of three large and sumptuous rooms. Down a quiet street yet Bay Villa is right in the heart of this Edwardian town and with views too. Breakfast is served in the room for complete relaxation. Rooms from £130, book via https://www.bayvilla.net.
