Come explore, enjoy and most importantly relax in this remarkable and unique area, which is a haven for nature lovers, bird watchers, ramblers and cyclists. The National Trust says Arnside and Silverdale is “a national and internationally important wildlife area”. There are ancient woodlands, rich wetlands, limestone pavements, pastoral meadows, crags, knots and a truly stunning coastline – all of which boast a tremendous variety of wildlife and breathtaking views.
Situated in the South Lakes area of North West of England and set within the beautiful Morecambe Bay, this area is frequently described as a ‘hidden gem’ and often overlooked by its busier and more famous neighbour The Lake District, which is just a half-hour drive away. There are numerous picturesque villages and hamlets to enjoy and over 200 footpaths to roam.
Leighton Moss RSPB Bird Reserve (where BBC’s ‘Autumn Watch’ has been based) is just a couple of miles away from the farm and we are also a stone’s throw from of the fantastic Gait Barrows National Nature Reserve, famed for its limestone pavements, wild orchids and rare butterflies.
Fishing, golf, horse trekking and water sports are on offer nearby.
There are plenty of good places to eat out and there is a wealth of micro-breweries for those who like a pint of real ale. There’s a good selection of local art galleries, museums, craft centres and theatres; including The Heron Theatre, which is less than two miles away at Beetham.
With such variety and natural splendour on offer, once found this is an area that you’ll find yourself wanting to return to again and again – in fact many of our previous guests have ended up moving to the area it’s that special!
