Welcome to The Cavendish Arms
The Cavendish Arms is much more than a Lake District hotel. It’s a 450 year old coaching inn, set in the picturesque village of Cartmel, with quaint low beamed ceilings, a wealth of antique furniture and a blazing log fire.
We serve excellent British food using the finest of local produce, wines and traditional beers and ales. With friendly relaxed service and very comfortable rooms you will find yourself drifting away into Cartmel’s perfectly laid back way of life. This charming retreat also has a fine restaurant where you can dine by candlelight. We now have three more brand new luxury double rooms with en-suite bathrooms in the heart of Cartmel village square above our new design-led gift shop, Perfect English.
All the rooms have been restored to an exceptionally high standard and retain much of the character of the original building with oak beamed ceilings. And if you like a piece of the antique country furniture in the rooms you can buy a piece to take home! You can relax outside the Cavendish with a chilled drink or speciality coffee and watch the world go by, or sit beside the babbling river Eea. This is the perfect location to stay for a weekend at Cartmel Races. The area around Cartmel is full of outdoor activities and we are just a stone’s throw away from the seaside and Morecambe Bay, and within easy reach of the central lakes, Coniston Water and Windermere.
