Nestling at the end of a quiet country lane, 200-year old Lake Cottage is located at the centre of the Arnside & Silverdale AONB next to Gait Barrows Nature Reserve. As its name suggests, it has a quite unique location bordering Hawes Water, a natural lake lined with reeds and water lilies and a haven for wildlife. This characterful gamekeeper's cottage offers 2-bedroomed accommodation for 4 with courtyard, sunny garden and boardwalk through reeds to private jetty on lake. Lake Cottage is 1 mile from Silverdale village with shops and pubs and 4 miles to the larger coastal villages of Arnside and nearby Carnforth with pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. The cottage offers doorstep access to many miles of waymarked paths, woodlands, nature reserves and coastline. This limestone area on the edge of Morecambe Bay is a paradise for walkers and nature lovers amidst streams, hazel woods and stone-walled meadows. The Arnside and Silverdale AONB encloses large tracts of National Trust land, nature reserves and bird sanctuaries edging the salt marshes and coves of Morecambe Bay. It is a place of beauty and tranquility that has changed little in decades and offers a welcome respite from the busier, more congested tourism of neighbouring Lakeland. Silverdale sits on the border of Lancashire and Cumbria with the fells of the southern Lakes, Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland are all within a 30 minute drive.
