Ashmeadow is located in a quiet lane adjacent to a meadow It is the perfect location for touring the lakes, dales and coastal area.
The village and area has much to offer visitors, in wildlife, walking and history. The Arnside area is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It has sites of scientific interest because of the rare butterflies and alpine plants that may be found around the limestone pavements. This is a unique landscape of special importance - everything comes together: the rock, the soil, the water and the weather, to make one of the most biodiverse areas outside of the tropics.
There are many lovely wooded walks around Arnside Knott, up to the 'Pepper-Pot' at Silverdale or around the coast with its cliff top walks and sea views.
The Elizabethan mansion of Levens Hall and it’s 1694 world famous, Topiary Gardens (only 5 miles away)and the 700 year old NT Sizergh Castle (7 mls),
Pretty shops line Arnside promenade and after a walk, a drink sat outside the Albion or Fighting Cocks with an excelent fish and chip shop! Looking across the estuary towards Grange and the Lakes peaks on a summer night is ample reward. You can try to spot the salmon leaping. Watch for the tidal bore at Arnside as the tide comes in.
Arnside has excellent communication links. The motorway junctions M6 J35 and M6 J36 are less than ten miles away, meaning easy access to the Lakes, Windermere (18 miles),Kendal (13 miles), Lancaster (17 miles), or North Yorkshire (20 miles). Arnside railway station allows easy access to Carnforth (of 'Brief Encounter' fame), Grange (8mins by train), Ulverston and Barrow and the west coast.
National cycle routes are nearby and the RSPB reserve at Leighton Moss is only a couple of miles away where the largest reed bed in the north-west attracts more than 100 species of bird, including breeding bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers.
