Arnside (AONB) - Cycle Hire

This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past. The beautiful pier and port areas of the town offer stunning views across Morecambe Bay as well as providing an enduring reminder of Arnside’s illustrious history. A great way to explore this beautiful area is by bike with a plenty of quiet lanes and tracks to help you discover fantastic scenery around every corner. You can hire a bike from Cycle Adventure and have them delivered to and collected from anywhere in Arnside and beyond. 

It is a haven for birds, and the surrounding countryside contains a wealth of flora and fauna. Here is the National Trust owned Arnside Knott, a 520 ft high flat rock, which with neighbouring Silverdale in Lancashire, has done much to secure the designation of ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. It has many lovely wooded walks around Arnside Knott, up to the “Pepper-Pot” at Silverdale or around the coast with its cliff top walks and sea views.

The town is accessible by rail (the Carnforth-Grange-Ulverston-Barrow line), bus and car, with reasonable parking. It is an excellent base close to the Lake District from which to explore the whole area. There are excellent views across the bay to Grange-over-Sands and the Lakeland fells.

The Victorian church of St James has some interesting stained glass windows. There are ruined Pele towers at Towers farm (Arnside Tower) between Arnside and Silverdale. Arnside has a Station on the coast line from Carnforth to Grange-over-Sands, Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness.

The Arnside area is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It has sites of scientific interest because of the rare butterflies and alpine plants that may be found around the limestone pavements.
