Best campsites for the Arnside & Silverdale AONB
Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, up in the northwest of England, remarkably claims that it hosts more than 50% of the flowering plant species of Britain. At 75 square kilometres, it may be one of the smallest AONBs, but it certainly packs a punch for a variety of habitats and a richness of terrain.
With craggy limestone outcrops, venerable woodlands, timeless meadows and nutrient-rich wetlands, it’s something of a magnet for all kinds of life. Rare butterflies and wildflowers like the High Brown Fritillary and Lady’s Slipper orchid find a safe refuge here. Wading birds flock to Morecambe Bay to feed in their thousands, and other species like marsh harrier and the endangered bittern are protected at RSPB Leighton Moss. Farming is still important here, and traditional practices like drystone walling and Westmorland hedge laying are cherished. The views are often majestic, especially at sunset when the seascapes are at their most incredible.
