Our Lake District Holiday Home
Our Lake District Holiday Home, Bankfield House, is a large Edwardian House set in it’s own grounds near Grange Over Sands. The house overlooks the shifting sands of the stunning Morecambe Bay. Bankfield House offers self-catering accommodation for between 10- 15 people and is therefore perfect for family gatherings or groups. There are 5 double bedrooms and plenty of space for entertaining with a large conservatory with log stove and two lounges. There is also a farmhouse kitchen complete with AGA for the wintry nights.
Our Lake District Holiday home is situated in a quaint village called Allithwaite near Grange Over Sands, just a mile from Cartmel and the Lake District National Park. We are located very close to the M6 at Junction 36 so we are convenient for those arriving by car. Moreover we have parking for 6 cars. If you are arriving by train – Kents Bank station is just a 10 minute walk. Trains go from Kents Bank to Lancaster (30 minutes), Preston (45 minutes) and Manchester Airport (1hr 15) regularly.
Bankfield House is perfectly suited for family gatherings and because it large and spacious with a lovely self contained garden that is well away from any busy road – perfect for kids to run around in. When it rains (which unfortunately it does sometimes in the Lake District) the house is big enough to relax in and you can use the toys in the games room or browse the books in our library. We also have WIFI for those that want to stay connected.
If you want to un-plug, the house is very well suited for walking holidays, golf holidays and activity breaks being so close to local amenities and the attractions of the Lake District. Cultural sights are also plentiful. Nearby we have Holker Hall, home of Lord and Lady Cavendish which is well known for it’s lovely gardens. Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are also popular. The area is also becoming a bit of foodie mecca with restaurants like L’Enclume just a mile away holding 2 Michelin stars and being rated the second best restaurant in the country in the Good Food Guide – not bad. We have reviewed some of the places to eat and drink for you to look through.
Have a look around our website where there is plenty of information about Lake District Walks and other Lake District Activities. We also have a collection of our family’s favourite things to do in the area. We look forward to welcoming soon!
