Stunning limestone pavements, ancient woodlands, intimate orchards and meadows and an impressive coastline make Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty one of England's finest landscapes. The work of the AONB Partnership aims to conserve and enhance this extraordinary place now and for the future.
New Eco Escapes Project
April 6th, 2022
In 2022, we’re supporting rural businesses by creating a collection of walking and cycling routes to promote sustainable tourism experiences in the Forest of Bowland and Arnside & Silverdale Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We will be targeting eco-conscious tourists keen to explore active travel or public transport options and discover beautiful natural landscapes, amazing wildlife and delicious local food by following a series of integrated itineraries which showcase quality accommodation, hospitality, experiences and activities. These will be linked with the gateway rail stations of Lancaster, Clitheroe, Silverdale, Settle and Bentham, to highlight the wide variety of wonderful visitor attractions and quality accommodation available and inspire visitors to stay a little longer.
(Please note: The funding has come from Lancashire County Council as a pilot cluster project to support rural recovery from the Covid pandemic, so can only include Lancashire-based businesses. The project is managed by the Forest of Bowland AONB.)
