This immaculately-presented, detached cottage is tucked away in the heart of the coastal village of Silverdale, located on the shores of Morecambe Bay in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This stunning cottage, formerly a cobbler’s workshop, is aptly named as you would never know it existed from the road, yet it is spacious, quirky and is beautifully presented to complement the old and the new. The well-equipped open plan kitchen, with a range cooker has a wall of original brickwork and underfloor heating and opens to a double height with beams. There is comfortable settee seating to the dining area with French doors to the garden. This is not the only recreational space as there is also a stylish lounge with woodburning stove, complete with a corner sofa to sit and relax on when a cosy night in is required. The bedrooms are spacious and light; one has a vanity area and the other has an en-suite together with French doors leading to a super large private balcony. Outside there is a covered veranda, patios, table and chairs and a sun house, all perfect to enjoy an alfresco meal in this sheltered peaceful private rockery garden or plan your day’s activities over a morning drink. You have many walks from the door in this beautiful area. Follow the coast and cliffs along the shore to Jenny Brown’s Point sitting on the elevated giant stone bench on route, whilst enjoying the views of the expanse of the estuary or maybe watch the tide sweep over the sands. Locally there is the Wolf House Gallery showcasing local artists, with studios and a café serving delicious fare, or pop across the road to the farm and sample the home-made ice cream and free range eggs. Birdwatchers will delight at the variety of birds and wildlife at Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, only a mile away, where you can see deer, otters and rare birds, and from where you can walk through the grounds of Leighton Hall and over to Warton Crag. Why not walk to Eaves Wood to see the limestone pavement and The Pepperpot? Arnside itself has a bustling promenade with café and local pubs serving local and award-winning ales, and has the local infamous fish and chip shop you can sample for supper. You can hop on a train from Silverdale to Arnside and over the Kent viaduct in less than a 15 minute journey to the elegant Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands. This area is a walker’s delight but also there is wonderful cycling and the family-friendly Bay Cycle Way which starts from Morecambe Bay and runs all the way through to Barrow, winds along the coast. Although there is much to see locally, Hideaway Cottage is also well-placed to easily explore the stunning Lake District making this wonderful cottage an ideal location year round.
