Grange over Sands

Grange is a pretty resort with an Edwardian flavour and a mild climate. It is on the shores of Morecambe Bay, and from the 13th Century until the 1850's, the major route from Lancaster was across the sands. In 1887, the coming of the Furness Railway encouraged the growth of Grange from a small hamlet to the town we see today. Wealthy industrialists from Lancashire and Yorkshire were quick to build large houses here.

Thursday

On the outskirts of Grange over Sands lies the Cumbria Grande Hotel, your base for the next 4 nights.

Friday

This morning there is free time to enjoy your resort. Then you can join your driver for a trip to Holker Hall & Gardens. Holker is the home of Lucy Cavendish and her husband Tor McLaren who extend a warm welcome to all visitors. Magnificently situated only a short distance from Grange-over-Sands and the expanse of Morecambe Bay, the Estate is set in exceptionally beautiful countryside with gardens that merge into parkland, framed by the Lakeland Hills.

Saturday

This morning after breakfast, we make our way to Haverthwaite to meet the railway. This could either be a diesel engine or a steam engine and this will be confirmed nearer the time. It's a unique day out for all. Jump aboard our train at Haverthwaite Station. Enjoy views from your carriage up to Lakeside at the southern tip of Lake Windermere. Then on to your cruise boat for a 40 minute sailing along Lake Windermere to Bowness where there will be free time before returning to the hotel.

Sunday

Today we travel to Sizergh Castle and Garden for a free flow visit. The Strickland family has lived at Sizergh for more than 750 years, and it remains their home today. Set in large, beautifully landscaped gardens and based on an impressive 14th Century solar tower, Sizergh was extended in Tudor times. The romantic fortified mansion contains some of the finest Elizabethan carved overmantels in the country, as well as a collection of good English and French furniture and family portraits. Of particular interest are the large gardens surrounding the Castle, a notable feature being the National Trust's largest limestone rock garden, including part of the National Collection of Hardy Ferns. Enchanting wildflower and water gardens also add to the charm of this elegant estate. When we return to the hotel an evening of entertainment awaits.

Monday

Sadly we have to say good bye to Grange over Sands and return to Lincolnshire. Your driver will arrange comfort stops on the way.
