The heart of the Lake District for lake cruising, water sports, walking and sight seeing is within a 30 minute drive. Also within a short drive there are historic market towns and villages e.g. Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancaster and Cartmel which offer quality independent shopping.
Horse riding, golf, climbing and mountain biking are all also on offer.
Throughout the region there are National Trust and privately owned houses, castles, wild animal parks, galleries and theatres to enjoy and there are many excellent restaurants, gastro pubs, traditional pubs and tea rooms offering the opportunity to sample the regions award winning produce.
Silverdale, as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, captivates its visitors with its stunning scenery, birdlife, rare butterflies and flowers.
The walks from the cottage door (120km of them!) offer amazing views of coast, limestone pavement, countryside and fells and the many ancient woods nearby are a delight to explore, particularly in Autum when they are clothed in vibrant colour.
Beachcombing, building sandcastles, rock pooling and fishing on the beach outside are ever popluar with young and old alike.
Local Stately Homes such as Leighton Hall, Levens Hall and Sizergh Castle make facinating places to visit and there are abundant Nature Reserves to enjoy including the RSPB reserve of Leighton Moss.
