Brackenthwite Farm


Brackenthwaite is a special hidden gem, nestled as it is within the heart of the idyllic and picturesque Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Our quiet family farm is surrounded by fields and woodlands, with beautiful views of the Lakeland hills. We are situated just outside the scenic Lancashire villages of The Yealands and Silverdale, towards the beautiful Cumbrian costal village of Arnside. Though we now no longer farm ourselves, there are still sheep and cows which graze our land. We also have free-range hens, ducks and doves.

Our four comfortable self-catering holiday cottages, form part of an attractive 17th Century complex of limestone buildings, set around a large courtyard. With plenty of outdoor seating and barbeque areas, you can while away the hours reading a good book or in summer simply watch the barn swallows swooping by. If you wish to stretch your legs a little and take in the views, then there is a lovely private nature trail around the farm’s fields and woods where you might spot some wild deer and buzzards flying over head.

We have been providing holiday accommodation at the farm since 1976, with many guests returning regularly and people coming from all over the world. We pride ourselves on providing
a real ‘home-from-home’ experience, where guests are welcomed like friends.
