Bowness-on-Windermere in the Lake District, Cumbria

Magic of The Lake District

Discover the spectacular Lake District, England’s most famous National Park renowned for its diverse and magnificent scenery, on a hassle-free short break

Without doubt the spectacular Lake District is one of England’s most famous National Parks, described by William Wordsworth as ‘the loveliest spot that man has ever known’, renowned for its diverse and magnificent scenery with gently undulating hills, towering mountains and sparkling lakes, all simply beautiful at any time of the year. Our base to explore this delightful region is the Edwardian resort of Grange over Sands lying between the mountains and the sea overlooking Morecambe Bay, a small picturesque seaside town with lovely limestone buildings, a traffic free promenade and beautiful ornamental gardens.



The Cumbria Grand is a charming Victorian Hotel set in 20 acres of gardens overlooking Morecambe Bay. Facilities include the Hazelwood Restaurant and the Jacobean Bar where you can relax over a pre-dinner drink by the log fire during the cooler months. All the comfortable bedrooms feature satellite television, telephone and tea & coffee making facillities. Lift to all floors.
