One of England?s most outstanding areas of natural beauty.
The vibrant and unspoilt historic village of Cartmel is situated in a quiet valley in one of England?s most outstanding areas of natural beauty.
Take time to visit this medieval village, which was winner of numerous 'Cumbria in Bloom' awards in 2011, and explore the surrounding landscape that reaches out to meet the sands of Morecambe Bay on the edge of the Furness Peninsula.
Offering stunning views of the South Lakeland District fells and countryside, Cartmel has grown up around its famous 12th Century medieval Priory Church. It is a special place where ancient history and tradition mingle effortlessly with the present day.
Although steeped in history, Cartmel is not trapped in time and the village offers today's visitors many modern surprises in the form of fine quality attractions, shops, eateries and places to stay.
Around the village square you will discover a delightful assortment of genuine 16th - 18th century buildings providing, as they have for centuries, friendly inns, well stocked shops and private dwellings.
The Cartmel official website gives more information about attractions and local events happening throughout the year.
