The property

A beautifully-presented, stone, terraced cottage located in the coastal village of Silverdale, on the estuary of Morecambe Bay, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the South Lakes.

This cosy cottage with hyperfast WiFi with 1000mbs broadband is full of original features and is well furnished throughout, with a sympathetic feel to the history of the cottage.

Head into the open plan dining area which has a stunning original tiled floor with a woodburner and original stripped cupboards, leading to the sitting room which has a period open fire.

There is also a contemporary stylish bathroom with a bath to soak in after the day’s exertions, together with a separate rain shower.

From the kitchen is the utility and boot room with a washer/dryer, leading to the rear private enclosed sunny garden with lawn and patio, perfect for a morning coffee whilst planning the day’s activities or relaxing in at any time of the day with family and friends.

This charming cottage has glorious walks from the door, you can head to the shore with its ever changing view dependent on the tide, or you can explore the elevated coastline at Jack Scout, just on the other side of the village, and sit on the over-sized stone seat to marvel at the scale and beauty of the estuary with far-reaching views.

Then head to Wolf House Gallery to see local art and sample the delicious refreshments at the café.

Close by is Eaves Wood, where you can see the pepper pot which sits on a limestone pavement, and from its elevated position there are far-reaching views of the village and surrounding area.

Slightly further into the woods, you can head to Arnside Tower, which is a late-medieval tower house built as a watch out for marauding Scots.

Birdwatchers will be keen to visit Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, only a mile away, where you can see deer, otters and rare birds, and from where you can walk through the grounds of Leighton Hall.

RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve is an ideal place for people new to birdwatching with a wide variety of birds to be seen throughout the year.

There is always a full programme of events for you to enjoy.

Arnside Knott is on the edge of the village, and there is a stunning coastal walk between Silverdale and Arnside, with the scenery changing from the vast estuary landscape out to Morecambe and Barrow, to the lakeland fells and Kent Viaduct to elegant Grange-over-Sands across the water.

Arnside has cafés, restaurants and pubs on the shoreline serving real ales, and a renowned fish and chip shop.

Let’s not forget the Bay Cycle Way, which is a relatively flat family-friendly route hugging the spectacular coastline of Morecambe Bay along quiet roads, greenways, canal towpaths and promenades through to Barrow.

There is so much locally to enjoy making this attractive cottage a perfect base year round for all the family and friends.
