Merlewood was formerly the home of Alfred Binyon whose nephew was the poet Lawrence Binyon. Today it provides 55 wonderfully comfortable self-catering holiday cottages and apartments in beautiful and peaceful surroundings, within easy reach of the southern Lake District.
The property is in Grange-over-Sands, a seaside resort that has retained its Edwardian charm. You truly feel as if you are stepping back in time here, with its pedestrian-only promenade, popular bandstand and lovely ornamental gardens. Even the shop fronts have stayed the same!
Windermere, Coniston Water et al are easily accessible, while for the more urban-minded, the city of Lancaster – often and unjustly overlooked in the guide books – is just a half-hour drive away.
There is a selection of dog-friendly holiday homes to let, and we also welcome kids and young families. Enjoy our on-site steam room, indoor swimming pool, children’s playground and even crazy golf. There is plenty to see and do both at Merlewood and in the surrounding areas, all of which you can enjoy from the comfort of your luxury holiday property.
