Area 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. 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. Set amidst the southern lakes, this attractive town makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
Region Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

We had an amazing time at Moorhurst Cottage.. The cottage itself is cozy and has lots of character but at the same time very modern features like the kitchen and bathroom appliances. The views over the bay are stunning and for those rainy days, there is a very comfortable lounge with a gas oven. The location of the cottage is also very good - Grange-over-Sands has small shops, supermarkets, cafes and pubs and if you need something out of the ordinary, you can always drive to a big superstore in Kendal. All the attractions of the Lake District are short drive away, e.g. Windermere, Coniston and the fells around Ambleside and Grasmere. For Scafell Pike, you have to drive around 1,5 hours.

The standard of the cottage was superb, however when I had enquiries for the owner about the property before our stay, it took 3 calls (with substantial waiting time), and was advised differently/not acted upon.. When we arrived at the property, there was updated COVID information. It outlined that there would be new soap at each sink and a bottle of wine rather than the usual welcome pack.
There was not new soap at each sink - one was nearly out and one sink was missing soap altogether. Disappointing in the circumstances. There was also no wine! Given that we were only four weeks into the new arrangements I would have expected better adherence. We contacted the company in charge of housekeeping and left a message but they failed to respond and rectify.
Great property, but felt let down by third parties.

We had a lovely time and the cottage was stunning.. Only one negative, and it’s not really a negative, would be to have a written list of what to go and see and do and not just wading through leaflets. As I say, that’s not really a negative!

This is a gem it was like a beautiful home from home.. Amazing views and so well equipped.

Mr Whelan, December 2019
Our second visit to Moorhurst Cottage so expectations were high knowing what to expect.. It is impossible to explain how relaxing, warm and welcoming this property is. It is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped and is now as it was some two years ago, so standards have clearly been maintained.
Lovely, lovely cottage!
Mr Stone, November 2019
This was our sixth visit to Moorhurst and we are always delighted with every aspect of this beautiful cottage.. Naturally, we will be returning in 2020.
Mr Mortimer, November 2019
This cottage is in a perfect location with a stunning view.. There is everything you could want from a self catering property. A great base for exploring either by car or train.
This was our second stay at Moorhurst Cottage and we will definitely return again.
Mrs Elder, October 2019
The cottage was delightful and located a few minutes walk from the charming small railway station.. However it is quite a small space. We were a group of three and although there is sleeping space enough I think it would be better suited to a couple.
Brilliant cottage, small but well designed, everything you could want.. Views from back of cottage amazing, very quiet with good walks from door.
Lovely cottage, very clean and had everything we needed for our short break .. would recommend this cottage as a nice peaceful get away .
What can I say beautiful place with a beautiful view of the lakes very well decorated to a very high standard .lovely comfortable bed and everything you would need for a trip away. very highly recommended will be coming back very soon
Stunning cottage with amazing views across the bay.. We had a lovely stay and would recommend to anyone looking for luxury accommodation
This is the second time we have stayed at Moorhurst Cottage and we love it ! It’s modern but also cozy inside.
The cottage was fantastic, it had everything we needed and it was really well laid out.. It's in a great area and the information booklet that the owners have left is superb.
Fantastic cottage beautifully presented, we were amazed when we walked in as pictures on web site don't show just how beautiful this cottage is ! We had a fantastic time and would love to return in the future ! A very thoughtful owner it was just like a home from home

Great cottage.. Amazing vues! Highly recommend it!
Beautiful cottage with amazing views.. Very quiet and peaceful. Cottage has everything you need for a lovely holiday. Grange very peaceful sleepy little place, people very warm and friendly. Perfect place to relax but within easy travelling distance of the more busy resorts
Some problems with the cleanliness of the cooker and microwave ovens, which we sorted,but you shouldn't have to do that on arrival..
Lovely week in Moorhurst Cottage with every home comfort.. Footpath into Grange a few yards from the cottage and the train station 5 mins down the road. Would definitely return.
Spectacular views across the estuary, beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable with modern and tasteful decor.. Just wish we’d booked for longer!
A beautiful little cottage in a perfect peaceful location! Only negative is that we didn’t book for longer.... we’ll be back again to explore and enjoy again!
Comfortable cottage in a great location.. Everything clean and tidy, nicely furnished with brilliant views across the bay. Planning to book again.
A beautiful home for our holiday.. Great views, great location, very comfortable.
Grange Over Sands still retains its links to it’s past history long may it stay that way.
The cottage is soo worth the money ! Everything inside is top quality items. The furniture is soo comfortable and modern. All the little quirky items are a nice little touch too. Loved everything about it especially the views ! We defiantly be going back when the weather is warmer !
Great location, beautiful cottage, better than described..
Beautiful cottage.. With lovely views. 2nd time of staying and will loved to go back next year. The Christmas decorations was a lovely touch! Had a relaxing and very enjoyable stay.
This is our second visit to this fabulous cottage and yet again we have enjoyed every single moment of our stay.The owner Karin must feel very happy in creating such an ideal accommodation for people who appreciate the true beauty of a wonderfully situated property. Needless to say we look forward to returning to this high quality cottage in the near future. Just bring yourselves and enjoy.
Superb location for a relaxing break! Beautiful cottage with amazing views!
This property was spotlessly clean and had more than adequate facilities, particularly given its size.. It is warm and welcoming as well as tastefully decorated and space albeit limited, is exceptionally well used.
Without a shadow af any doubt, we would recommend this to others and will definitely consider returning in the not too distant future.
Cosy, very comfortable and great view over the bay..
This cottage was excellent in every way and the owners obviously take pride in it, It should be 5* not 4*.. It was equipped to the highest standard from the furnishings to the crockery.
The views from the cottage are second to none.
Brilliant cottage, someone has taken a lot of time and quite a lot of money on this conversion,it's stunning ! !
We loved this place. The owner has obviously put a great deal of thought into the design. Although small in terms of square meters it is very spacious and its two bedrooms were particularly good - the beds seemed particularly comfortable. The views from the lounge over the bay are stunning and the furnishings are all to a very high standard. Parking is easy and the location is just a shortish drive to most of the Lake District locations. We have rented many holiday cottages over the years and this was absolutely one of the best.
We found the cottage warm and welcoming, with everything we required to enjoy a relaxing break. The views were outstanding and there was plenty to do in the area.
The cottage was warm, bright and welcoming with fantastic views over the estuary from the sitting room and both bedrooms. We did not want to leave the beautiful cottage and views and would happily return again.
Moorhurst Cottage is situated in a great location with stunning views. We loved this cottage and had a great holiday.
