A Lancashire beach features in a list of the UK’s 20 best secret and remote beaches where you can avoid the crowds, by The Telegraph.

Introducing the list, the newspaper said: “You know the drill – each time the sun appears, Britons get the undeniable urge to hotfoot it to the beach, armed with the essentials: swimming togs, towels, and buckets and spades.

“However, you also know that if you’ve had the great idea to spend the day at the seaside, so has everyone else.

“Beach days offer an escape from the everyday, and while the triple pull of blue skies, golden sands and sparkling seas is irresistible, in truth the UK’s main seaside resorts are often overrun when the sun shines.

“But that needn’t be the case. With more than 11,000 miles of coastline in the UK and an incalculable number of beaches, a little pre-planning means you needn’t share the sand – or indeed pebbles – with the masses. You just need to know where to look.”

Best beaches in the UK

Silverdale Cove in Lancashire features in the list but what did The Telegraph say about it?

What The Telegraph said about Silverdale Cove

The newspaper said: “While many beachgoers in Lancashire are tempted by the dazzling attractions of Blackpool, away from the seafront theme parks, Lancashire has plenty of tranquil coastal treasures to discover.

“Known for its amazing sunsets, Silverdale is more suited to exploring than sunbathing or taking a dip (it has sinking sands and rip tides), but there are great rock pools and a cave, plus the attractive village shares an arts-and-crafts trail with nearby Arnside.”

Another said: “A country pub with rooms doesn't get much better than this.

“The rooms, the food, and the ambience are superb and as for the staff......well......they were absolutely brilliant.

“Hugely good fun but at the same time caring and efficient. If I were to run a pub this is how I would like it to be. Thank you Silverdale Hotel for making a difficult trip so much easier to cope with.”
