With more restaurants and food suppliers and producers taking advantage of the wonderful landscape for food production to the new Bay Cycle Way opening, it’s the time for Grange to step away from playing second fiddle to Cartmel and become the short break and holiday destination label it so deserves and warrants.
The town has the best of many worlds starting with the Victorian architecture which is so evident lining the Morecambe Bay coast. The front and prom areas have grand buildings which frame this town and make it so distinctive from the other coastal towns in Cumbria. Behind the Victorian splendour is Cumbrian countryside, farms and the Lake District fells and visitors to Grange are never far from any of them. Small villages surround the town with Cartmel being the most famous for food and fast paced horse racing.
Grange takes advantage of being one of the major towns in Cumbria in terms of transport links, road, train and bus, whilst keeping the spirit of an independent business and its own identity. This makes the town a place to visit and stay whatever the weather and whatever the time of year.
And Grange’s newest bed and breakfast, Bay Villa, appears to be popular whatever the season too. This luxury B&B is practically full booked until November, just the odd night here and there available in between. But the 365 day destination of Grange is an excellent choice for a pre Christmas getaway and has such easy access to and from the M6 along with the added bonus of the train service. Bay Villa can be booked online via http://www.bayvilla.net . Rooms from £110 per night including breakfast.
