The spirit of hospitality
As Canonesses of St Augustine, we are committed to the ancient monastic tradition of hospitality. Welcoming you to our home is not something that we do as an extra to our other work of running the nursing home - it is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We hope to be able to cater for your needs in a flexible and sensitive manner. Do not be afraid to ask for anything that might make your stay more comfortable or enjoyable.
Boarbank Hall is situated near Grange-over-Sands, in South Cumbria. The house is an early nineteenth century residence, standing in beautiful grounds overlooking the wide expanse of Morecambe Bay. It is an ideal place for a family holiday, a peaceful rest, or a retreat. The local area provides a wealth of interesting activities and places to visit.
We can accommodate up to thirty guests in single or twin-bedded rooms. Each room is tastefully and decorated and comfortably furnished. There are facilities for making hot drinks on each corridor, and cots and high chairs are available for children. Meals are served in a spacious dining room and there is an elegant drawing room for you to relax in. The TV lounge also contains a table tennis table, and books and videos which can be borrowed. For the more energetic, there is an excellent outdoor tennis court. There is a children's play area in the gardens.
Opportunities for Prayer
For those who wish for a change from the pressures of everyday living, our grounds, our chapel and our oratory offer different experiences of peace and tranquillity. You are most welcome to share in the prayer life of our community. For many visitors to Boarbank, regardless of their religious affiliation, two of the great attractions are the daily celebration of the Eucharist at 10 a.m. and the singing of Evening Prayer at 6 p.m.
