The Area & Things To Do Around Silverdale


Things To Do Around Silverdale


Within a short 20-minute stroll you will have reached Britain’s smallest area of outstanding natural beauty; Silverdale.

When you stumble across the quaint and friendly village, you can experience the unique atmosphere it has to offer, alongside its local shops offering fresh and locally grown produce.

In addition to this, you will find our pub in the village The Royal which provides fresh and locally sourced beers! Come and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere.

Surrounding Areas

Not only is Silverdale a wonderful world alone, but the fact that it is so close to many other superb locations makes it even better! Not so far away lives Arnside, Lancaster and Kendal, allowing you to be a part of much more natural beauty.

Arnside is a 30-minute stroll away from Silverdale, playing its part in Britain’s smallest area of outstanding natural beauty. Arnside Knott (522ft) dominates a rocky peninsula where the village of Arnside lives. From its past of small coasters, steamers and yachts calling landing there, today Arnside welcomes many visitors to enjoy its bustling seaside village.

The Lake District

One of the reasons which makes Silverdale, Kendal, Arnside and all the surrounding areas so special is its belonging to the stunning Lake District.

The landscapes we witness makes the area not just an enduring favourite for walkers, while the forests, fells and waterways provide the setting for sporting enthusiasts, but the historic presence adds extra character.

As the former homes of Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin and the poet Wordsworth, you certainly feel the personality and character come through in the beautiful heritage of the lakes.

The History of Middlebarrow

From the late 1700s up until 1950, Middlebarrow Plain was open rough grazing, forming part of Arnside Tower Farm.

The Holgate family first rented the land from Dallam Tower Estate in 1956 and eventually bought it. The existing light scrub gradually formed woodland.

The best way to see this wonderful area is to stay at our park and to explore its surroundings. You can get in touch with our friendly team to know more.

The Royal, Silverdale

The Royal is a local bar and restaurant in the heart of Silverdale village. Linked to The Knott and The Pepperpot, and only a short walking distance from Cove Lodge, The Royal is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious and locally sourced food and drink.
