Genealogy

Occupying one of the most attractive spots in England on the Cartmel Peninsula in South Cumbria, Grange-over-Sands looks out over the expansive sands of Morecambe Bay, a rich feeding ground for many species of birds that take advantage of the great climate. As the sun shines down on a hot day the sea sparkles making it difficult to see across to the Isle of Man out in the Irish Sea that is often visible on clear days.

Grange-over-Sands is not only well known for its exceptional climate (known as 'Lakeland's Riviera'): the number and variety of shops in the town is another good reason to visit this most pleasant of towns. Some of the best hotels in the county are to be found here, but all pockets are catered for. Don't be put off if your on a limited budget.

Though easily accessible from the Lake District (Lake Windermere is only 7miles away) and towns such as Kendal, the Cartmel Peninsula is a peaceful place to visit and provides some truly marvellous discoveries. The village of Cartmel itself is but one. There is much to do and see on the Peninsula: golf, horse driving, horse riding, trout fishing, hot air ballooning, parachuting, a classic car museum, superb gardens and parks and a good number of great walks, plus many places of historical interest. What more could you ask for?
