With so much going on in and around Grange over Sands in 2019, it is more than wise to start thinking about booking accommodation!

The area is getting busier and busier in general with many more businesses opening in Grange over sands the town itself especially food orientated ones. Head across the Cartmel and the foodie theme continues and again, Cartmel even on a no event weekend is packed full of visitors (look out for monthly food market held every 3rd Friday).

But look to the weekends of Cartmel races and the Holker Spring Market and this corner of Cumbria is THE place to be.

All this action beings in May with the brand new Holker Spring Celebration. Being held on May Day Bank Holiday weekend Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th and Monday 6th of May. There is set to be a variety of food, home, garden and gift exhibitors attending the market as well as lively entertainment. Taste delicious, locally sourced and made seasonal produce, pick up fabulous spring flowers and plants, handmade gifts etc – you really will be spoilt for choice. An excellent value market to attend at just £3.00 per adult, accompanied children free of charge. The entrance fee also includes parking and entry to the Cafe, Food Hall and Gift Shop at Holker Hall.

Then the first racing fixture at Cartmel Racecourse of 2019 and all years is on Whit Bank Holiday Saturday followed by a second day of racing on Bank Holiday Monday 27th and then Wednesday 29th. Being a Bank Holiday and of course half term, the fixtures have a family theme running through them with fun activities and a picnic on the Wednesday fixture. Look out for the newly refurbished and renamed Paddock Premium Lounge – the 1856 Lounge.

So back to accommodation and to get rooms during these highly prized dates and especially in the case of smaller venues such as the 3 room Bay Villa luxury bed & breakfast on Main Street Grange over Sands, book early to avoid disappointment has never been so crucial! Rates include a spectacular breakfast with views out and across Morecambe Bay.
