Not too far from home, we enjoy a long weekend break in the Victorian seaside resort of Grange over Sands, with accommodation at the elegant Cumbria Grand Hotel. With entertainment each evening and excursions taking in the best of the Lake District, this is a leisurely pre-Christmas break to be enjoyed.
The 3 star Cumbria Grand is set on 20 acres of woodland and gardens with views over Morecambe Bay, this traditional hotel occupies a sprawling Victorian mansion and is a 10-minute walk from the promenade. Period-style rooms feature en suite bathrooms, TV, telephone, tea making facilities and hairdryer. Wi-Fi is available in the public areas. Meals are served in a grand bay-view dining room, and the lounge offers an open fire and bar. There is a lift.
