Local area and places of interest
The Coach House is an ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts and for those wishing to unwind in beautiful surroundings with lovely views of the bay and surrounding fields and woodland. From the doorstep, walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers can explore the Silverdale Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with its rich mix of coast line, woodland, wetland, farmland, limestone crags and pavements. This landscape encourages a diversity of wildlife which is unique. Leighton Moss RSPB Nature Reserve and Silverdale Golf course are located two miles from The Coach House.
Silverdale village is a ten minute walk and offers a choice of three pubs, an indian restaurant, a butcher, post office, doctors, chemist, co-op, newsagents and a fish van on Wednesdays. We support the view that most food shopping needs can be met locally.
The village is conveniently located thirteen miles north of the historic city of Lancaster. There are many attractions for visitors to the city. These include: The Castle with parts dating from the 12th century; The Priory; The Dukes Theatre; Williamson’s Park; The Maritime Museum and The Judges Lodgings. There is a thriving food market in the centre on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Just south of Lancaster, a walk or drive through The Forest of Bowland AONB is highly recommended. The stone villages of Wray, Melling, Hornby and up to the picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, Sedbergh and beyond are wonderful, unchanged communities full of character and surrounded by rich farmland. Kendal is twelve miles north of Silverdale and marks the gateway to The Lake District. On route to Kendal, there is Sizergh Castle an interesting National Trust property and Levens Hall in Milnthorpe, a beautifully maintained historic dwelling which remains privately owned and occupied. A sunset walk along the promenade in both Morecambe and Arnside with the Lakeland hills as a back drop is an absolute must. Or why not take the little ones to Greenlands Farm Village in Tewitfield to meet the animals, ride on a tractor or donkey or just mess around in the straw and have fun (while the grown ups enjoy some artisan shopping!). Just a taste of the many memorable things there are to see and do in the Silverdale area.
To enjoy this unique corner of unspoilt Lancashire, The Coach House is available for weekly breaks and short breaks through-out the year.
