The Netherwood Hotel is in the Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands close to the railway station with its access to the Lake District. of which it is on the Southern edge.  It is positioned high up the cliffs overlooking the Morecambe  Bay Estuary, so rooms at the back of the hotel are not as light as those overlooking the bay. The lift only reaches the first floor bedrooms. There is a gym free to residents and a spa, discounted for guests —ask for a price list. Some of the bedrooms on offer are in two separate buildings within the grounds. Rock House is a modern building with 4 en-suite rooms—3 with bay views and all with private outside space. The Turrets is also used for self-catering accommodation when it is not needed for bridge guests. It has a kitchen, dining room and sitting room on the ground floor and two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor as well as an outside patio area with bay views. Both these buildings can be accessed by a private drive with parking spaces. The Netherwood must serve the most elegant breakfasts of any of my hotels. If you like plain and simple dinners, then the Netherwood is not the hotel for you as the chefs can be quite adventurous. Don’t sit next to the windows in the bridge room if you’re easily distracted as the view is guaranteed to draw your attention!

If you like to relax or read a book, the gardens have plenty of seats and you can always take a drink from the bar with you.

There are some interesting shops and a variety of cafes in Grange-over-Sands or you can take a stroll along the promenade with its flower beds sponsored by local businesses.

Farther afield are the delights of Cartmel, home of the sticky toffee pudding, or you can take a trip on the train to Arnside or Windermere.
