Town: The Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is a charming town set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay. This wonderful seaside settlement offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. What was once an old fishing village was transformed by the Furness Railway to become a fashionable Edwardian resort. Much of the town's current architecture, such as the traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses and brass band concerts are due to this expansion of the village. The excellent beach also offers good bird watching opportunities whilst a short drive away is Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead. Set amidst the southern lakes, Grange-over-Sands makes a wonderful holiday destination for the whole family and a superb base from which to enjoy the rest of this beautiful area.

A "tight" car-parking space and lots of stairs were more than compensated for by the gorgeous views from so many rooms of this 1st and 2nd floor apartment, which is both interesting and homely! An easy walk to "local corner shop", great art & craft co-operative, the promenade and convenient access to roads for sight-seeing opportunities resulted in a wonderful holiday in late april this year.

Very good service. We liked the home very much. The location was excellent. We all slept very well, because the beds were very comfortable. We were 4 persons and the rooms were spacious. Its a good place to go on day trips. Our favourite place was the rocking chair at the great window.

"Dunlins" is a beautiful apartment with views across the estuary from every window, It is well euipped, spotlessly clean and very convenient for shops and the lower Cumbrian Lakes. We liked it so much that we spent two separate weeks there and enjoyed them both. Our dog - cocker spaniel - also enjoyed her holiday!

We found Dunlins very comfortable and the view from lounge was stunning. On our first night we found a deer in the garden. Great walks and we loved Carmel, the home of sticky toffee puddings they were great too. Restaurants in Grange over Sands were good and we found that cooking wasn`t necessary as the carry out foods were good too. We would return again, maybe earlier in the year next time.
