For anyone who hasn’t been before, the seaside town Grange-over-Sands is a perfect base to explore the fells of South Lakeland and the Furness Coastline. This charming Edwardian resort has a sunny, south-facing position on the edge of Morecambe bay and has some of the finest parks and gardens on the Cumbrian coast, including the beautiful ornamental gardens. The bay estuary and the countryside around Grange are fascinating places for bird enthusiasts.
Hampsfell Hospice is situated on the fell above Grange and has provided shelter for travellers ever since. Just a half hour’s walk from from Grange, the Hospice boasts an outstanding view that takes in the Old Man of Coniston, Helvelyn, the Langdales and Morecambe Bay.
