“The idea that Grange is only a winter or early spring resort, and that in summer it is extremely hot and enervating, is very erroneous, as in the warmest weather there is always a refreshing breeze blowing gently in from the open expanse of the estuary, and its ozonic properties are most relaxing.”
Mason’s Pocket Guide to Grange-over-Sands, 1901
Many thanks to all those who attended our open days in 2014, we were very pleased to have so many visitors. We have raised £6,995 this year for the NGS charities, which brings the total to more than £20,000 in the last three years alone.
We look forward to another successful year in 2015 but for now our open days have finished. We hope to see you next year. We will be open for the NGS on the first Sunday of the month, June to September, and we also welcome groups of ten or more on other days, by appointment, for which we charge £5 a head. Margaret will be pleased to serve tea and coffee with biscuits in the morning (£2 a head) or cream teas in the afternoon (£4.50 a head).

For those who are curious about the garden and the plants which we grow here, we have answers to some frequently asked questions.
