Silverdale & Beyond

The Village

Wolf House Cottages are located a 10 minute walk from the centre of Silverdale village in the hamlet of Gibraltar.

On your doorstep you will find The Wolf House Gallery occupied by artists Janice Macgloine and her daughter who produce original and unique artwork.

Just across from the gallery is Wolf House Gallery Cafe, run by Ed and Jenny which has built up a very good reputation based on serving genuine homemade cakes, light meals and good coffee.

The cottages are situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), on the edge of Morecambe Bay, and there are numerous walks you can take leading you through mixed woodland, low lying hills, limestone pavements and along coastal paths.  Jenny Brown`s Point, Trowbarrow, Eaves Wood and the Pepper Pot, and Arnside Knott are all on the doorstep.

You can walk or cycle from the cottages to the RSPB Reserve at Leighton Moss, which is very nearby, as is the historic home of the Gillow family at Leighton Hall.
