Number 43 was originally a fine Victorian gentleman's residence, built in 1890 of generous proportions, backing onto Arnside Knot which rises behind and facing front-line onto the Estuary bay, hugging the headland now renowned for its waterside walks, looking directly over sands and river to the Lakeland Fells.

Acquired by the current owner in 2006, Number 43 underwent complete refurbishment to now provide six en-suite letting bedrooms, in the style and quality of a luxury boutique hotel, enjoying the exceptional panoramic view from bedrooms, lounge and the stepped terraced front garden alike. With a spacious, welcoming lounge and breakfast/dining room to match, visitor reviews reflect the 5 Star Gold rating with Visit England - a maximum 5 out of 5 on Trip Advisor (based on 184 reviews to date); and awarded Trip Advisor's own 'Certificate of Excellence'. Following happy years of outstanding levels of service, occupancy and profitability, the current owner is now looking to retire from the hospitality sector.

Number 43 sits on the promenade of Arnside village, a beautiful location on the Kent Estuary just 15 minutes from the M6, with its own railway station, quirky shops, eateries and bakery, art galleries and sandy beaches. A relaxing place to unwind, spot herons and oystercatchers, just people-watch, or venture out on coastal walks. Go further afield by train on the Furness Railway where estuary waters lap along much of the stunning railway line, or by car to the Cartmel Peninsula (perhaps to the Michelin-starred restaurant L'Enclume in Cartmel) or to the waters of Lake Windermere just 20 minutes North.
