Hotel Description

The age of elegance is not past; it still lives on at this lovely old manor house where two generations of the Varley family have created a special atmosphere of warmth and comfort. Once the distinguished residence of the descendants of William Marshall, the Earl of Pembroke, founder of the historic 12th Century Cartmel Priory, Aynsome still echoes with the character and traditions of that bygone era. Located in the still untouched Vale of Cartmel and with views southwards to the Norman Priory, meadowlands and woods, Aynsome Manor represents an ideal centre from which to explore the richness of the English Lakes or the hidden delights of the nearby coastline with its fascinating estuaries and inlets. Newby Bridge at the Southern tip of Lake Windermere is just 4 miles away, whilst the genteel Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is only 3 miles away.

Holker Hall and Gardens - Grange-over-Sands - Historical Houses

Holker Hall and Gardens - Grange-over-Sands - Historical Houses

Distance 2.11 miles (3.37 km)
Holker is a Norse word, which can be translated as a rising in marshy land. Although the origins are lost in the mists of time, the earliest records of a house on the present site date back to the beginning of the sixteenth century. Only a short distance from the sea, Holker Hall is magnificently situated and is set in exceptionally beautiful countryside with gardens merging into parkland, with hills on one side and the expanse of Morecambe Bay. Despite its grand scale, this handsome rose coloured neo-Elizabethan mansion and its Gardens provide a soft and gentle contrast to the ruggedness of the Lakeland countryside to the north. The record reveals that Lord Cavendishs ancestors felt that for them Holker was more desirable, more favoured by Providence and more enhanced with natural beauty than any other place on earth.
