Why visit Arnside and Silverdale National Landscape

Editor of independent hostel guide with view of morecombe bay from Carnforth

On the west coast of England just below the Lake District, lies an easily accessible yet partly forgotten area of national beauty. Perfect for exploring, here you can find limestone pavements, ancient woodlands, rich wetlands, and a coastline with spectacular sunsets. The place has a genuineness to it. It is a working landscape where farming has retained many traditional practices, Westmorland style. There are natural pastures rich in wildflowers and rare butterflies. The timeless tides of Morecambe Bay, reveal historic channels and salt marsh, visited by rare wading birds and wildfowl. Train stations at Arnside, Silverdale and Carnforth make a visit easily accessible and Yealand Old Schoool, a Quakers’ hostel, will welcome you by providing great value accommodation. Come and walk the well-maintained footpaths, or cycle the quiet lanes and byways. Be kind to yourself and plan a tranquil adventure.
