Things to do in and around Silloth
Silloth is a town with a population of about 3000, nestling on the shores of the Solway Firth, facing the hills of Southern Galloway and backed by the Lake District Fells. Silloth is noted for its invigorating but mild climate, its leisurely peaceful atmosphere and perhaps, most of all, its glorious sea views and sunsets fine enough to be recorded for posterity by Turner, the famous landscape artist. The town centre is made particularly attractive by thirty six acres of grassy, open space,
known simply as ‘The Green’.
There is an 18 hole golf course, which was the ‘home’ course for Miss Cecillia (Cecil) Leitch (1891-1978), the most celebrated woman golfer of her day. The exceptionally mild winters make this an all-year round course. Recently it has been voted number 1 golf course in Britiain and Ireland
Cycling around the Solway Coast is a fantastic way to travel around and has been designated as an Area of Oustading Natural Beauty. The country lanes and minor roads are blissfully quiet and the wildlife is spectacular. The Solway plays host to huge numbers of wildfowl, seals and dolphins and porpoises can sometimes be sighted offshore.
So if you fancy a game of golf a cycling weekend, a romantic retreat or just a fabulous break here in beautiful Silloth. Come and visit us here at Green View Guest House.
We can safely store your bikes and golf clubs.
