Arnside & Silverdale Day 1

Expansive horizons, warming walks and views to take your breath away

Enjoy an immersive wildlife safari on Cumbria’s coast, taking in a designated area of outstanding Natural Beauty.


Alight at Arnside Station on the Cumbrian Coast. Take in the views and work up an appetite with a wander up to this fantastic viewpoint. You get to see why this is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
In Arnside, turn left from the railway station; pass a road junction.
After roughly 40m, turn right through a gate to follow the signed 'public bridleway, Silverdale Road', a quality, walled-in track which rises towards the Knott. You will pass a sports field and a church before reaching Silverdale Road. Turn right and follow the roadside to a junction signed 'Arnside Knott'.
Turn left and follow the road as it steadily rises and turns a sharp left in front of houses. Keep following the road around a right curve before turning right through a kissing gate with a 'public footpath, the Knott' sign. This takes you into the National Trust’s Redhills Wood. Follow the obvious path up through the woodland to a kissing gate, ignoring a path on the left.
Bear left for a short while before heading directly across grassland on a sheep track, towards the tree-crowned summit. Enter the woodland through a gate where the track forks. Follow the track on the left to reach the trig. point at the summit of the Knott.
When you have finished taking in the fantastic panorama, retrace your steps back down to Arnside.
