    “Hillside was a fantastic cottage in a fabulous location.”

    Clean and comfortable throughout.

    Clean and comfortable throughout. Grange over Sands is a perfect base and the village itself was lovely with plenty of amenities and all where closer than we thought. I would definitely return to Grange over sands and Hillside cottage.

The property

This well-furnished, single-storey cottage lies in the pretty village of Grange-over-Sands on the southern tip of the Cartmel peninsula.

A relaxing escape for a family or two couples, Hillside has been fully renovated with contemporary finishes, providing for an overall quality accommodation.

The open-plan living area comprises of a comfortable seating area with large window, which takes advantage of the stretching sea views, and a dining table for four.

Boasting a Rangemaster cooker, the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook up a hearty feast.

The master bedroom boasting folding doors leading to the private decked garden and the sparkling family bathroom are both further additions to this premier Grange-over-Sands cottage.

The village offers several pubs and restaurants and also a popular bakery and toffee pudding shop, leaving you with lots of eating choices.

Work all that food off with an enjoyable coastal walk, perhaps along the promenade or through the limestone hills.

Just a short drive away is the Lake District and its many attractions with the lively hubs of Bowness and Ambleside closeby, along with the highly recommended cruise across Windermere, there’s so much to see and do.

Being situated in the southern Lakes, but also on the coast, this attractive cottage is well placed to explore locally or further afield, making this a perfect holiday location, anytime of year.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Lake Windermere 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

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, Holker Hall, Furness Abbey, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. There is also the 25 mile Cistercian Way which starts at Grange over Sands. 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.
