    For some of the best views in South Lakes, fishing from the beach / pier, lovely walks over Arnside Knott, close to Silverdale AONB with walks around woodland / limestone pavement at Eaves Wood / Gait Barrows. Also 10mins drive from RSPB Leighton Moss - one of the best in the UK!

    Leave M6 at J35 Carnforth, follow A6 north to Milnthorpe, turn left down B5282 through Sandside to Arnside. Follow Promenade to far end (past the Albion Inn) and on to the cul-de-sac near Ashmeadow House. Lots of MHs overnight here looking over the estuary. Great food at The Albion (also at the Olde Fighting Cocks Inn -our favourite, much better atmosphere and beer!). Proper village bakery with lovely hot pies - just the thing after a walk over Arnside Knott or down the beach to White Creek and New Barns Bay!

    ENJOY!

    Incidentally, when we are working during the week, we spend most of our weekends walking in the Lakes - so feel free to contact us for info on places to go / camp / wildcamp! :BigGrin:

    Parking

    Sounds very nice but looks very narrow on google would you have to park side ways on taking up 2 or 3 bays. Or have we got the wrong location?

    Hi
    We stopped at Gibralter Farm last year had a good walk around the area, very nice and enjoyed it so we will look into it for later this year. Pete :thumb::thumb::thumb:
