Arnside cottages

Arnside cottagesArnside is a hidden gem. This small, sleepy Victorian seaside resort sits on the estuary of the River Kent where it meets Morecambe Bay and enjoys panoramic views of the Lakeland fells. It is uncrowded, yet really accessible. This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past – a small yet beautiful pier and port area provide an enduring reminder of Arnside’s history. The arrival of the railway brought visitors to the area and led to the building of the many grand houses in the village by well-to-do Victorians, with their fascination for the sea. The railway adds to the scene with a long, low viaduct crossing the river to carry trains on to Grange-over-Sands.
