Providing stunning views of the South Lake 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
