Perfect for… food lovers, spectacular countryside and fascinating historical sites
The medieval village of Cartmel in the South Lakes is in a great location for exploring the area; it’s just two miles from the popular town of Grange-over-Sands and boasts spectacular views of the South Lakeland Fells.
Pay a visit to 12th century Cartmel Priory, the stunning church crafted from the remains of the building after much of it was destroyed at the Disillusion of the Monasteries in the 16th century. The exquisite stained glass windows and stunning modern sculptures make it a unique treat and an architectural gem. Food lovers will appreciate the town’s dessert connection, being that it’s the home of sticky toffee pudding. There are a great selection of eateries, from traditional pubs to charming cafes and a host of fascinating shops to peruse.
Enjoy being outdoors and exploring your surroundings on foot, where you will be greeted by stunning, rugged countryside and plenty of hiking opportunities for the more adventurous.
It only takes a moment to enjoy a bespoke list of recommended holidays made just for you.
