This outstanding semi-detached cottage, located overlooking the shore, has been styled to complement the views, natural light and location in the elegant Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands.
Thoughtfully and tastefully styled throughout the spacious, light rooms make use of the stunning estuary views and have been carefully presented to ensure maximum comfort and enjoyment during your stay.
The ground floor shower room has a walk-in shower and twin sinks and you can even see the shore views here too if you desire.
Step into the well-equipped kitchen and see the thoughtfully-designed doors that house the washer/dryer and freezer or step outside and enjoy the views from the patio with a morning coffee.
On entering the generous open plan sitting and dining room, you will see that the seating area and stove have been positioned for maximum appreciation of the views so you can watch the tide cover the estuary, view the birds or even the stars at night.
The high vaulted ceiling adds to the feeling of space and design with the stunning floor-to-ceiling slate wall.
Grange-over-Sands has a traffic-free promenade to enjoy the shore and botanical gardens, along with café and pubs and even a chocolatier shop.
From the train station, Kent Bank is a three minute walk away so you can enjoy a journey up the west coast or pop across to the neighbouring Arnside, across the estuary, which is 10 minutes away across the viaduct.
Close by, the attractive village of Cartmel, with its ancient 12th century priory and the UK's smallest race course, is known as a gastro village with the renowned L'Enclume restaurant and lovely pubs.
It is also the home of the famous sticky toffee pudding which can be purchased from the artisan shop.
Historical houses are also close by, from Holker Hall, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall, with its world-class topiary gardens, and all have super grounds and temping fare in their cafés.
This is a perfect area for walkers and from the centre of Grange-over-Sands you can walk up Hampsfell and see a stunning 360 vista of Morecambe Bay in Lancashire, the wind farms of Barrow and the Lakeland hills.
You are also only a 20 minute drive to Newby Bridge, the southern tip of Windermere, where you can enjoy water cruises to Ambleside and Bowness.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Formerly a small fishing village, the introduction of the Furness Railway transformed Grange-over-Sands into a fashionable Edwardian resort. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L'Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Other attractions in the area include Levens Hall, with its Elizabethan Hall and world famous topiary gardens, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. Set amidst the southern lakes, the attractive town of Grange-over-Sands makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
