    “We had a lovely stay at Pear Tree Cottage, very well equipped and comfortable.”

    However I do feel the living room needs more comfortable seating, and I do wonder how 6 people could fit on the one settee. The window seat is not really an option for relaxing in the evening. ...

    However I do feel the living room needs more comfortable seating, and I do wonder how 6 people could fit on the one settee. The window seat is not really an option for relaxing in the evening. I do find it a little insulting to be asked to strip the beds prior to departure. This is something I used to have to do years ago when staying at youth hostels. When paying just under a thousand pounds for a 5-night stay, I would have expected this to be part of the housekeeper's role. I have stayed in many cottages over the years and have never been asked to strip beds, and although a 5 minute job, just takes the edge off the stay. I do enough of that at home!

The property

Pear Tree Cottage is an idyllic stone-built semi-detached cottage perched on the outskirts of Grange-Over-Sands in Cumbria.

Boasting a large multi-level garden with barbecue and a contemporary interior with high-quality furnishings, Pear Tree Cottage is a superb pet-friendly dwelling for a family or group of six friends looking for a countryside escape.

Park-up on the private driveway which has space for two cars, before stepping into the delightful hallway to discard any coats and shoes after your journey.

Look forward to sinking back into the plush, velvet sofa before selecting your favourite TV series from the Smart TV with Sky, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

As you relax, the designated chef within your party will be delighted at the well-equipped contemporary kitchen, with electric range having seven halogen hobs, they will be able to rustle up some tasty home-cooked meals to be enjoyed around the dining table with a bottle of wine.

Benefit from the utility room which houses a washing machine and dishwasher, making cleaning up a breeze!

After a long day of exploring, climb the stairs and treat yourself to a refreshing shower or soothing soak in the bath, before popping on your pyjamas and catching your rest in one of three well-presented bedrooms, a king-size, a double and a bunk.

Wake-up and join your guests out in the large, enclosed garden for a tasty alfresco breakfast, as you make plans for the day and a barbecue in the evening.

Head into the local town where you can soak up the views with a stroll along the Grange-Over-Sands Promenade, followed by a delicious ice cream or pub lunch at one of the nearby eateries.

Delve into history and embark on a walk up to Hampsfell Hospice, which was constructed in 1846 by the vicar of nearby Cartmel in order to shelter travellers from severe weather conditions, it also offers stunning views from its top.

Just a short drive away is the remarkable Holker Hall & Gardens, which boasts 200 acres of lush, vibrant gardens and woodlands, as well as a deer park and guided tours, it makes for a memorable day out.

Next stop is Kendal, where you will find the interesting Quaker Tapestry Museum which details the town’s rich tapestry heritage, as well as the fascinating ruins of Kendal Castle.

For a truly unique souvenir, head to Woodmatters, where you can try your hand at wood carving and bushcraft and create something of your very own to take home!

Just a little further is the expansive Lake Windemere, where you can take to the waters by boat or via an excellent selection of watersports or embark up Queen Adelaides Hill for superb views over the lake out Bowness.

For the perfect touring base for exploring the Lakes, choose Pear Tree Cottage.

About the location

GRANGE-OVER-SANDS

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.
