Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria

Just metres from the sea, Bay Villa is a newly renovated boutique B&B in the gentrified Victorian town of Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria. It has three large rooms overlooking Morecambe Bay and is a 10 minute walk from the very pretty, beautifully placed railway station. It opened in April 2014.

Bay Villa rooms are of the highest quality, with features including solid wooden headboards, marble fireplaces and thick carpets. Certain rooms have four posters beds and a free standing bath. All rooms have a separate seating area, a flat-screen TV, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. There is free parking and free Wi-Fi.

Breakfast is included in the room rate. Further eateries and pubs are located within a 12-minute walk of the property. Lake Windermere is 7 miles from Bay Villa. The pretty town of Kendal is a 20-minute drive away. Holker Hall and Gardens are 12 minutes’ drive from the property.

Views from Bay Villa: are stunning and look across the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay to Arnside and Silverdale. Immediately below the property is a very small garden centre, with a big local following, based in an old low stone building. A car park sits below the railway line that takes small trains up and along the west coast of Cumbria. That sort that toot-toot as they infrequently pass-by.

Bay Villa: is the main part of a house designed by a well-known local architect Francis Webster in 1820. When it came up for sale in 1841 it was described as including two pews, one at Lindale Chapel and the other at Cartmel Priory. The building was added to in 1860. It’s been a public library and a meeting place for the Plymouth Brethren. There are some wonderful, original moulded ceilings and other features. Guests take breakfast in their en-suite rooms which are finished to a very high standard. One room has access to a pretty wrap-around balcony. Access to Bay Villa is by an unassuming front door straight off the street from which a Westmorland window and information plaque hint at an important interior.

Grange-over-Sands: Has formal gardens, promenade, highly rated family-run, independent food shops (supplying chocolate and bacon to Bay Villa) and a dis-used Grade II listed lido. There are some amazing walks up through Eggerslack Wood to the Hospice on the summit of Hampsfell. Built in 1846 by the vicar of Cartmel, it provides shelter for walkers and offers the best views to the foothills of the southern Lakeland fells. Near to Grange-over-Sands is Cartmel – home to sticky toffee pudding, a race-course and Michelin starred Simon Rogan’s ‘Roganville’, a destination for any gastro lover.

Please let me know if you need any more information or if you would accept an invitation to come and try it out; best regards Emma.
