The Lake District
The Lake District, located in the North West of England, provides limitless activities for walkers, mountaineers, adventure seekers, wildlife enthusiasts and historians alike. Whether you stay in the comfort of a vehicle and drive one of the famous Lakeland passes, or take to the hills and mountains on foot, the Lake District, with the highest mountains in England, offers some of the most spectacular views and scenery in the British Isles.
For the water lovers the lakes offer a variety of boat trips and water sports, all with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and mountains. Properties worth visiting include Holker Hall, Muncaster Castle, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top (home of Beatrix Potter), Wordsworth House (Cockermouth) and Townend. Nearby there is Fell Foot Park for picnicks and boat hire.
Made famous by A Wainwright, the fells of Windermere, Coniston, Borrowdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Grasmere, Langdale, Wasdale, Eskdale (and more) - together with their delightful towns and villages nestled in the Lakeland valleys and woods - makes for an unlimited vista of scenic beauty.
Grange: for pubs, shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, ornamental gardens, park, duckpond, bandstand and the promenade with bowling green, tennis courts, mini golf, crazy golf, skateboard park/BMX challenge, basketball, outdoor table tennis, childrens play area (iPlay station - see www.iplayweb.com) and tea rooms - all an easy walk away from Orlestone House.
A walk over Hampsfell offers stunning views of Morecambe Bay with a visit to the 'Hospice' before droping down to Cartmel. The hills have many outstanding examples of limestone pavement formed in the Carboniferous Period. Samples of these interesting stone formations can be seen in many local walls and gardens, including our own garden! Nearby Cartmel, the home of Sticky Toffee Pudding!, offers history dating back to 1190 with delightful shops, pubs, winebar and restaurants. Visit Cartmel Priory, and the race course - for the much enjoyed Cartmel races.
For further information on Grange and the South Lakes, including a diary of events, covering activities such as golf, site seeing, local and county shows, children's farms, animal parks, walking (including Morecambe Bay walks), cycling, fishing, horse riding, rock climbing, sky diving, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, archery, target shooting and water sports, please visit my website: www.southlakesandgrange.co.uk/index.html

Beautiful flat, very clean with all the mod cons you might need. Bathrooms were good. Very spacious and warm. Loved the wood burner in the kitchen, very cosy with a glass of mulled wine. Excellent location for visiting the South Lakes, so much to do.Close to Grange - nice short walk into town and down to the promenade. Fantastic butchers in town for meat and pies. Couple of nice restaurants in town but not many and not much variety.
Thank you for your supportive review. Cartmel is a great place for pubs and eating, as is Allithwaite, both short car journey or within walking distance. A trip on the train (one stop) to Arnside, where there are two pubs and fish & chips is well worth it. I am working on a website to inform guests more - so watch this space! Thanks, and do come again.
