The local area and walks
There are many types of attractions and places to visit from Wyreside.
On site we have a tourist information point complete with brochures and directions to some of the North West's finest attractions and places of outstanding beauty.
Wyreside is ideal for cyclists, pleasure walkers, birdwatchers and people who generally enjoy nature and the outdoors. You are welcome to use our land to ride your bike but please remember to call ahead to check the status of the ground - weather permitting only - 01524 792093. We also have maps of circular routes available at reception and cater for walking groups with light refreshments or meal options. For walkers we have a secure drying room area in our Bed and Breakfast and we also have boot scrapers outside the main building. For cyclists we can securely store your bikes overnight in our main garage. Our chef will be happy to make a 'packed lunch' for you and your party, then you can leave from Wyreside or drive to any starting point within a short distance and try the many walks in this beautiful area. Bird watching is a pastime supported by many and here in Lancashire we are blessed with lots of different species of birds and wildlife. The Forest of Bowland AONB and Arnside & Silverdale AONB are nationally protected landscapes which are beautifully unspoilt and great to explore. They are easily accessible from Wyreside (by car). There is also Leighton Moss RSPB Nature Reserve and the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust at Martin Mere with superb countryside, attractive routes and rugged moorland, you will find that Lancashire is a great place for cycling. Head west for a more costal ride, where you will find a network of rural lanes linking attractive villages. To the east the countryside becomes more rugged, as you climb up to the Bowland and Pennine Hills. You could try Dunsop Bridge for a great family fun bike ride or Gisburn Forest for woodland trails and off-road excitement. The lancashire cycleway (90) passes near to our entrance - this is a challenging 280 mile cycle tour of the country which offers some outstanding countryside, (including the Bowland hills) and has some steep hills but fantastic decents! Off route is the national cycle route 6 which goes between Lancaster & Preston. We can offer a welcome stop to cyclists with a light meal (weekends only) and refreshments to refuel those legs - we even have a campsite with a modern shower block on site for a quick refreshing overnight stop. You can come for a relaxing walk around the grounds at Wyreside - just bring your car and for a small charge of £1 per day, venture out from here! If you require any local information - such as brochures, maps, walks, cycle routes etc, please ask us at reception for print outs.
