Unwind in South Lakeland and book a break in one of our Cartmel
cottages, situated in a small medieval village, today known as the
'home of Sticky Toffee Pudding'!
Yes, if you have a sweet tooth, a Cartmel cottage is paradise
found - just head for the Cartmel Village Shop where this
scrumptious dessert is made. Indeed, the shelves bulge with all
kinds of delicious treats, including a wonderful range of gourmet
hampers for that ultimate picnic.
Foodies flock to our Cartmel cottages!
Around the village square and tucked along the side streets,
welcoming eateries jostle for attention - traditional inns, cosy
tearooms; even a world-class restaurant with a Michelin star! Or
dine at home sampling local delicacies from Unsworth's Yard,
featuring all sorts of culinary delights and a monthly food market.
Cartmel's pièce de résistance is its 12th Century
Priory, embellished with exquisite stained glass windows and
contemporary sculptures. Learn all about the monastery's
history at the Heritage Centre housed in the old Priory Gatehouse.
Enjoy a flutter? Plan your stay over spring or summer bank
holidays and join the crowds at Cartmel Races - one of the
country's loveliest racing venues. Other events held on the
race course include equestrian competitions, dog agility shows and
the Cartmel Agricultural Show.
Get out and about! Walking, cycling, fishing, golf - so many country pursuits to choose from. Explore the delightful Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands, with its sweeping vistas over Morecambe Bay. Or pay a visit to Holker Hall & Gardens, the Cavendish Family's historic estate.
Expect all this and more when you book a Cartmel cottage!
