Grange over Sands a quiet retreat

Between Morecambe Bay and the beautiful hills of Cumbria, part of the Lake District National Park, lies a small and beautiful town under the name of Grange over Sands. The town is situated right next to the coast and it offers stunning views across the entire Morecambe Bay.

The architecture of Grange over Sands is also remarkable and you will notice many Edwardian buildings, built with limestone that was quarried locally. The town is called Grange by the locals and it was originally built on a hill and continued all the way down to the water. This is not a very busy town and it is one of the most calm tourist locations you can think of. There aren’t any major roads passing through it, so you don’t have to worry about speeding vehicles.

If you want to visit the shops in Grange, then you can find the central shopping centre near the hill’s bottom. It is very close to the shore and near it is an ornamental park which is the perfect place for relaxation. A small pond is situated in the middle of the park and parents often take their children there to feed the wildfowl that lives in and near the pond.

If you want to take a walk, then you should go across the line and follow the coastline for a few kilometers. There are no roads near it and the place is very situated, so you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful coastline without being worried by anyone. Morecambe Bay is home to many rare kinds of birds, so you should take your binoculars if you want to observe some rare species in their natural habitat.

A local attraction is Holker Hall, the home of Lord Cavendish. This building is open during tourist season and it is one of the most popular attractions in the area. The town of Grange is near Kendal, another beautiful town which is often called “The Gateway to the Lake District.”
