Peter and Karen Dixon, who spent 30 years in Australia, decided to return to the UK in February 2015, to be closer to their family. Peter, who is Cumbrian born, said he always felt exiled from his beloved Cumbria, hence the decision to return after so long was easy. Peter and Karen bought the guest house in July 2015, and have spent the last 6 months adding their own unique style. Both Peter and Karen have spent most of their working lives in the hospitality industry, so buying the guest house seemed the right thing to do. "We love what we do, and we love sharing our home with visitors from all over the world. The house absolutely loves company, and she comes into her own when the property is full of guests."
The town developed in the Victorian era from a small fishing village, and the arrival of the railway made it a popular seaside resort on the north side of Morecambe Bay, across the sands from Morecambe. The 'over-Sands' suffix was added in the late 19th or early 20th century by the local vicar, who was fed up with his post going to Grange in Borrowdale near Keswick. In 1932 a lido was built on the seafront but it closed in 1993 and was listed Grade II in 2011. The River Kent used to flow past the town's mile-long promenade but its course migrated south, away from Grange. The sands or mudflats with dangerous quicksands became a grass meadow now grazed by small flocks of sheep. As a result of sustained easterly winds in the early part of 2007, the river has begun to switch its course back across the bay, and it remains to see whether the meadows survive. The clean, sea air was believed to be of benefit to tuberculosis sufferers, and in 1891 one of the first sanatoriums in the country was established at Meathop. Not only was the air believed to have a therapeutic effect but also the local spring water.
