To the west is the Irish Sea, and to the east is the Forest of Bowland, partly owned by the Royal Family.


The local area is mostly farmland, the nearest large urban area being Lancaster, approximately five miles away. Approximately 100 inhabitants reside in Bay Horse. The main road through Bay Horse is Whams Lane, which is used by motorcyclists on their way to Devils Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale.


The Lancaster Canal bisects the village, and the M6 motorway runs though the village.

Bay Horse railway station closed due to low usage in the 1960s.


There are no amenities in the village, just a single pub, the Bay Horse Inn, after which the village is named. Even though the boundaries of Bay Horse are uncertain, there is a riding school on the outskirts called Bay Horse School.[1]

Notable figures have attended the pub, including, amongst others, Sir Alex Ferguson.
