Our Cartmel Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Cartmel

The medieval village of Cartmel rests in the southern Lake District and enjoys a fine position for exploring the area. Admire sublime views over the Lakelands, while the popular town of Grange-over-Sands sits just two miles away.

Cartmel Priory was destroyed during the Disillusion of the Monasteries in the 16th century, its remains stand to this day. Appreciate the stained glass windows and sculptures, making this a memorable visit.

Cartmel’s sticky toffee pudding is a must-try, with the traditional English dessert originating in this Lake District village. Cartmel’s restaurants and pubs provide a wide range of food and drink to recharge the batteries after an exhausting hike.
