Not having even been open a whole year yet, the 1st anniversary being April 7th 2015, Bay Villa have clocked up a huge 81 reviews on TripAdvisor. But what makes this remarkable is the total number of reviews is just 83 so the percentage is practically 100% 5 star.
It’s not easy opening up a new bed and breakfast in the current climate especially in Cumbria with so much competition including a high number in Grange over Sands itself. Bay Villa have chosen to do things that little bit different, setting themselves apart from the rest, and it looks as though they have succeeded. Occupancy figures are growing month on month and people have even returned not just once but twice in some instances in 10 months.
The differences at Bay Villa you’ll discover compared to other guest house and B&B’s are peace and quiet despite being in the centre of Grange, one to one attention and service, exceptionally large rooms, stunning views of Morecambe Bay and breakfast served at a time that suits the guests. Championing the Slow Life, breakfast is leisurely, at a time of your choice, no need no rush, no need to go downstairs or to a dining room as Breakfast is brought to guests in the room.
Adjectives mentioned numerous times in the reviews include, “Blissful”, “Beautiful” and “Relaxing” which is exactly the atmosphere Bay Villa want to achieve.
Booking as far in advance as possible for key dates is advised now for example Bank Holidays and in terms of local events such as Cartmel racing fixture weekends. For more details and to check availability visit the Bay Villa website here http://www.bayvilla.net.
