Slate hill farm bed and breakfast accommodation grange-over-sands near lake windermere, lake district, Cumbria.


Slate Hill nestles in the Winster Valley a beautiful but often overlooked entrance into Lakeland. The valley takes its name from the slow flowing River Winster which meanders through it and until recently marked the boundary between old Westmoreland and Lancashire. The roads of this valley are rarely more than lanes, it would be difficult therefore to find a more peaceful area, from which to explore Southern Lakeland.

We are just four miles from the timeless gentility of Grange-Over-Sands on the coast, with its grand Victorian and Edwardian architecture and within five miles of the southern end of Lake Windermere. Steamers leave Lakeside at regular intervals and the boat timetable runs in conjunction with the Haverthwaite railway.

We are also within easy reach of the market towns of Kendal and Ulverston, the village of Levens with its Hall and the most attractive village of Cartmel with its racecourse and Priory.

To find Slate Hill Farm leave the A590 at the Witherslack sign, go through the crossroads at the Derby Arms then take the next left turn, following the brown information sign to Halecat. Climb the hill, take care at the sharp right hand bend, then take the next left turn, again following the sign to Halecat. Go past the entrance to Halecat and proceed down the hill, once more take the next left turn, at the no through road sign. Slate Hill is the first property on your right.
