Cumbria Reports

Grange over Sands, Cumbria

Review of Grange over Sands by Nick on October 18th, 2007
The advent of the Furness Railway transformed the small fishing village of Grange-over-Sands into the fashionable Victorian/Edwardian resort, with wealthy merchants building grand houses, which now accommodate top quality hotels.

Marvellous limestone buildings dominate this picturesque seaside town.

Grange has much to offer the visitor. A traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens, a duck pond, golf courses, brass band concerts and vantage points for bird watching are just some of the many attractions on offer. Population 4,000

The best part of a holiday is not so much to be resting yourself as to see all the other fellows busy working - Kenneth Grahame
