Morecambe Bay

Watching the sun go down over Morecambe Bay is the stuff memories are made of. This stunning piece of coastline and its ever shifting sands take in scenic viewpoints, gently rolling farmland and classic seaside towns. The Arnside-Silverdale area has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the road from artsy Ulverston to Barrow is the ultimate definition of a 'road with a view'. Cartmel is a foodie paradise where you can sample the famous Cartmel Sticky toffee Pudding. Whether you set your sights on Holker Garden Festival, the Cartmel Show or Ulverston Dickensian Festival, you can be sure of a very special atmosphere all year round.
