Cartmel Valley in the Lake District with its gentle undulating landscape of lush green fields, leafy lanes and rolling hills makes for great and popular location to stay, any time of year.
Cartmel is a centuries old unspoilt village in an area recognised as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From here, walkers, ramblers, cyclists and countryside lovers are soon in landscapes of wonderful views to the not too distant fells of the Lake District and the sands and waters of Morecambe Bay on the edge of the Furness Peninsula.
Cartmel is well known for many things: its beautiful 12th C Priory that overlooks the village, this has magnificent stained glass windows, modern day sculptures and ancient choir stalls. The Priory is a major visitor attraction to the area and well worth a visit of you are close by. Its small racecourse hosts popular meetings two or three times a year, traditionally in Whit Week.
More recently it has become known for its world-famous sticky toffee pudding, sold at the Cartmel Village Shop which is located on the market square. The village also houses a variety of interesting shops and traditional pubs around its main square.
