“This extraordinary place is famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, and superb walks. From the simple beauty of the lady's-slipper orchid to the shining sands of Morecambe Bay, the area is simply awe-inspiring. Stunning limestone pavements, ancient woodlands, intimate orchards and meadows and an impressive coastline make Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty one of England's finest landscapes. The work of the AONB Partnership aims to conserve and enhance this extraordinary place now and for the future.”

“A short drive or twenty minute walk from the cottage is the lovely Wolf-house gallery and cafe. It has recently been renovated to include a licensed restaurant. The cafe serves amazing cakes and coffee and the shop stocks local artists work and a beautiful selection of crafts and books. A great place to incorporate on a walk to Gibraltar point.”

“Our favourite, charming Indian restaurant in neighbouring beautiful village of Silverdale. Super food at incredibly reasonable prices. Run by a lovely guy and his great family. Take your own drink and pay cash. (There is a cash machine in the restaurant and at the Co-op next door, where you can also buy soft drinks, wines etc.) We often walk to Silverdale. Silverdale is included in the AONB.”
