Out and About in the Country

IMG_9524For those seeking the peace and tranquility of the countryside, the coast surrounding Blackpool is full of little gems. The villages are as old as the hills and as quaint as can be. Whether you’re looking for a cosy B&B in an area of outstanding natural beauty, or a luxurious country hotel, the whole area has you covered!

Arnside and Silverdale AONB

The beautiful area is home to many small villages as well as great expanses of stunning countryside. It’s a dream come true for hikers and cyclists.

  • The “Silverdale Hotel”, surprisingly situated in the heart of Silverdale village is not in fact a hotel, but rather a pub offering bed and breakfast. All seven rooms have a view, be it over the sea, the gardens or the beautiful surrounding countryside. The pub specialises in excellent real ales, although there is a wide range of other drinks. Good quality food is served in the restaurant. There are also family rooms.
  • “Number 43” in the village of Arnside is the ideal place for those looking for a relaxing break. With stunning views from the rooms, lounge and terrace, photographers will also be right at home here. Breakfast consists of the best, freshest local produce and several options. Breakfast in bed is also provided on request. They’re fully licensed and provide a wide selection of local beers and wine.

Country Hotels

Looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and pamper yourself? A country hotel is a great choice. Out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by beautiful scenery and treated like royalty, you won’t want to go home. The “Singleton Lodge Country House Hotel” is located just outside the village of Singleton, near Blackpool. Huge luxurious rooms await and expert, friendly service. Fine dining and a well stocked bar will keep you fed and watered in style. Alpacas graze calmly in the surrounding fields and you’re sure to feel a million miles from anywhere. In fact, many great attractions are just a short drive away.
