Arnside

Situated above the shores of Morecambe Bay, just below the more famous Lake District National Park are the coastal cliffs of Arnside.

Sitting on the edge of the Kent Estuary, Arnside has been a fishing village, boat building centre and Victorian playground.

Furthermore, the stone jetty is testimony to the visiting pleasure craft of yesteryear.

A peaceful village with pretty shops, it attracts holidaymakers to its waterfront with magnificent views over to the Lakeland fells.

Arnside is popular with walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers, being home to much coastal birdlife.

The areas around Arnside are renowned as designated Areas of Outstanding Beauty and Sites of Scientific Interest.

Keep your eyes peeled for rare butterflies and alpine succulents that shelter amongst the limestone pavements.

You can drive or walk to Arnside Knott where you will be treated to a panoramic view of the Lakeland fells.

There are many lovely walks around Arnside Knott and up to the Pepper Pot at Silverdale.

Further on the sparkling sands of Morecambe Bay come into view.

Arnside Knott is a rolling 521-foot fell just south of the village.

From here, there are many lovely walks around the Knott with woodland offering some shade.

This quaint old former fishing village has a charming promenade with independent shops, pubs and cafes.

The fish and chip shop sells the best fish and chips for miles around.

From the promenade, the sunsets are spectacular and from the pier watching the tide roar in on the bore never fails to fascinate.

Arnside is two stops by train from Kents Bank Station.
