Destination guide

The quaint seaside haven of Silverdale

A short distance from the proud county town of Lancaster and the busy, traditional coastal resort of Morecambe, the pretty village of Silverdale in Lancashire combines quaint charm with wonderful coastal views. Choose a Silverdale vacation rental and you can explore the scenic coastline of Morecambe Bay, the rolling hills and lofty peaks of the nearby Lake District and the many local trails and footpaths that crisscross this beautiful part of the world – followed by a well-deserved hearty meal or pint of delicious locally brewed craft ale in one of the area's traditional country pubs.

Things to do

Explore Silverdale's neighboring towns

If you're staying at your Silverdale vacation rental with kids, make the 20-minute journey south to the nearby coastal town of Morecambe to enjoy a day out on Morecambe Sands. Traditional fish and chip shops, arcades and ice-cream parlors make for a proper English seaside day out. Meanwhile, the neighboring town of Lancaster offers great local shopping. Don't miss a trip to Lancaster's 12th-century castle which houses a small history museum and runs kids' activity tours through the summer. In the other direction, a 30-minute drive north will take you to the impressive medieval house, beautiful gardens and estate of Sizergh Castle – another must-see.

Activities

Silverdale's quaint village charm

Silverdale has a quaint village center with bustling shops, a local pub and an art gallery and cafe featuring work by local artists. The village gently meanders down towards the shoreline of Morecambe Bay where you'll find green public spaces where you can relax in the sunshine and admire the view. The Lancashire Coastal Way trail heads south from here to Freckleton and, northwards, the Cumbria Coastal Way tracks up the rugged coast to Gretna. This is wonderful hiking and hillwalking country. From the village, take a gentle circular walk to Jenny Brown's Point and Warton Sands to enjoy a picnic with more gorgeous sea views.

Weather

Silverdale through the seasons

This part of North West England may be beautiful, but this is a rugged stretch of coast. While summers might be perfect for fun-filled family days out playing on the sands, winters can get cold and you can expect hikes and bike rides to be breezy affairs. Spring and fall are delightful times of year to explore the many coastal trails; in spring your path will be lined with butterflies dancing in the pale sunshine while the quality of light come fall has a rich autumnal glow. Through the year, neighboring Morecambe hosts a number of festivals including the Catch the Wind Kite Festival, Morecambe Jazz Festival and the Tutti Frutti 1950s Festival.

Meanwhile, more challenging hikes can be undertaken following a short drive north to the English Lake District. These rolling green hills are home to waterfalls, rocky peaks and quiet, reflective lakes.
