Local Area & Places To Visit

Kirkby Lonsdale – wonderfully quaint, little market town, with a good selection of distinctive shops, cafes and pubs. Discover the medieval bridge over the river, the 12th century church and ‘Ruskin’s view’, and enjoy the surrounding landscapes, which made such an impression on Turner and Constable. A few miles further on, take a 4½ mile walk around the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, to experience Dales scenery at its most magnificent..

Arnside and Silverdale – an Area of Outstanding Beauty, head out to Jenny Brown’s point and look out across the bay to the pretty Edwardian influenced town of Grange over Sands. Birdwatchers will not want to miss RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve and the wide variety of wildlife that the reedbed attracts.

Carnforth - home to Carnforth Station Heritage Centre and setting for the film ‘Brief Encounter’. Train enthusiasts will want to check out the various steam engine journeys, passing through Carnforth, throughout the year.

Morecambe – Perfect for a family day out, Morecambe has an award winning, cycle friendly promenade, stunning views across the bay to the Lakeland hills, a sandy beach and the lovely, traditional Happy Mount Park.

Lake District towns and villages – just too numerous to mention and each with its own character and charm. Bowness, Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere, Hawkshead and Keswick are all ‘must sees’, not only for their spectacular, scenic backdrops but also for their eclectic mix of shops, eateries and watering holes. However, the lakes themselves are the real gems. Can’t see them all in one trip? You’re welcome to come back again, anytime!
