Arnside and Silverdale is a special place
Sitting on the Cumbria and Lancashire borders, overlooking the shimmering sands of Morecambe Bay, its landscapes and wildlife are awe-inspiring.
From the heights of Arnside Knott see the Lakeland Fells, the Yorkshire Dales and, on a clear day, Blackpool Tower. The limestone hills lead down to villages, including Silverdale and Arnside itself, on the shores of Morecambe Bay, where the tidal bore roars in “at the speed of a galloping horse”.
At the village of Beetham, walk down the Fairy Steps without touching the sides and the fairies will grant your wish. Warton Crag, Leighton Moss and Eaves Wood reserves showcase the wildlife.
At the end of the day, take tea at the iconic Carnforth station’s refreshment rooms and wallow in the nostalgia of David Lean’s classic film Brief Encounter.
